Pressure applied to points on the body promotes energy flow and corrects dis-harmonies throughout the patient’s body. In addition to being a deeply relaxing experience, Shiatsu helps relieve stress, increase circulation, detoxify your body, reduce blood pressure, relieve pain from tense muscles and illness, and contributes to a patient’s overall health and well-being. Shiatsu regulates the automatic nervous system activity and stimulates the circulatory, lymphatic and hormonal systems. Poor posture, joint problems, sprains, arthritis, sciatica, acute and chronic neck and back pain, sinusitis, and bronchitis are treatable with Shiatsu.
