Shiatsu is an ancient art of massage from Japan. This style has been called “Kata Shiatsu” because it has a component of choreography to the massage that allows for wholeness—all of the energy meridians are involved.
Insurance will cover Shiatsu if you have naturopathic or often if you have acupuncture coverage.
Patients stay fully clothed throughout the treatment. No oils or lotions are used.
Shiatsu gives the best of both worlds–the physical and stress relieving benefits of massage and the rejuvenating effects of harmonizing your body’s energy meridians.
Shiatsu can also be used as a diagnostic tool for patients. Based on the findings during your Shiatsu treatment, the practitioner is able to target future treatments (acupuncture, etc.) specifically based on where your energy meridians were blocked.
The restorative and health maintenance effects of Shiatsu can be profound.
Shiatsu appointments are 1.5hrs or 2.5hrs. Please wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes made of natural fibers.
