“SHIATSU” is a Japanese form of physical therapy involving numerous stretches and pressures applied to different parts of the body onto the “Acupuncture” or “Pressure” points which in turn create a balance in the body's energy to maintain good health.

The actual word “SHIATSU” means “Finger Pressure”. SHI = Finger, ATSU = Pressure. It’s origins are ancient and a part of the classical oriental medical theory which dates back as far as 2.000 BC. To the beginnings of “Acupuncture”. There are a variety of techniques used but they are all linked with the common belief in the body's energy “KI” which flow in interconnecting channels or “Meridians” around the body.

Each “Meridian” is connected to a psycho-physical function or organ. It’s action can be affected at certain points along the channels known as “Tsubos”, which are more prominent where the energies meet. When good health is maintained the energy flows smoothly along the “Meridians”. But if the body has been weakened through: Incorrect posture, traumatic experiences (EG: Accident or immoderate life style) deficiencies will arise in some areas; the “KI” no longer flows smoothly and disease wil occur. Most people are liable to:
  • Stomach upsets
  • Colds
  • Depression
  • Moodiness

  • And will fall into the category of “Half Healthy People”. “SHIATSU” is an excellent way to keep the body balanced and in harmony, maintaining it’s vitality and health. When skilfully administered “SHIATSU” can aid in the relief of many other ailments, all of which can be treated successfully. Enabling people to become more aware of their bodies needs and helping to prevent many common ailments.

    “SHIATSU” is not only effective but also thoroughly enjoyable, leaving you relaxed and completely revitalized. It can be given safely anywhere and as often as once a day as it involves no drastic interference with the body's processes. It simply rebalances the “KI” so that the body can heal itself.
