Shiatsu Shin Tai Bodywork:
Shiatsu is a form of bodywork from Japan that works with the meridian system of the body. Shiatsu utilizes thumb, finger, palm, forearm, elbow, and foot pressure along with rocking and stretching. These methods allow the practitioner to access and move an individual’s energy to stimulate natural healing through the body’s own intelligence. Shiatsu is performed with the client fully clothed on a futon, table, or in a seated position if necessary.
The Shin Tai aspect broadens Shiatsu Bodywork to include work with fascia and structural alignments through soft tissue work, CranioSacral elements, and Central Channel work. These methods encourage the recovery of Life Force that has been trapped. When released, this life force will flow through the meridians and nourish their related organs. This work is about guiding the body to access its own healing ability. It’s about the recovery of Life Force for better health and life experiences.
