50-minute shiatsu treatment
Treatment takes place with the receiver lying or sitting on a Japanese cotton mattress on the floor. Loose comfortable clothing is recommended.
During a treatment the application of steady continuous pressure using the thumbs, hands and knees affects the circulation of vital energy, Ki. Stuck or stagnated energy (jaki), the root cause of all diseases, is released through the combinations of deep rhythmic movement, assisted stretches and the treatment of specific release points. This stimulates the body to regain its’ natural equilibrium. Tao shiatsu treats the whole person, concentrating not only on the symptoms, but also on the individual's vitality and innate healing power
