Zen Shiatsu is a form of bodywork administered by thumbs, fingers, palms and elbows, feet and knees. Pressure is applied to all parts of the body along specific pathways (meridians). These are essentially the same meridians that are used in traditional Chinese medicine for acupuncture. It is understood that this technique stimulates the natural healing powers of the body, wherefore symptoms of disease lessen and vitality is regained.

The professional Zen Shiatsu therapist is trained to feel the body’s condition, particularly the circulation, by his/her hands in order to find the imbalanced areas in the body. By skillfully stimulating the imbalanced meridians, the therapist attempts to restore the balanced flow.

Since everyone seeks bodywork for his or her own reasons, it is difficult to say ‘exactly’ what you should expect from your treatment. Each session is tailored around one’s individual needs. However, there are a few things that will prove consistent from session to session:

You will receive a treatment designed to meet your individual needs. You can expect that your corrective therapy will contain a combination of Myofascial Release, Craniosacral Therapy, and traditional Zen Shiatsu....and may include other modalities including BARS, prayer for ancestral forgiveness, Reiki, cupping, moxa, and aromatherapy. Any given session may range from deeply relaxing to therapeutically challenging, or anything in between. Each treatment will be different; each will be a unique session tailored around your needs at that time. 

Unlike other traditional therapies or conventional medicine, personalized bodywork does not just focus on the symptoms. It certainly addresses the symptoms at hand but also identifies and rectifies the root cause of the problem. This will be the reason behind the profound and lasting results.
