Shiatsu massage with Vanessa Joubin

While on a trip to Taiwan to visit a friend, I was reminded how the body and mind are so closely related in oriental medicine and how preventive health care through complementary therapies was an integral part of my friends’ life.

VanessaWhen I received my first Shiatsu treatment, I was fascinated by how a subtle touch on my abdomen or a movement of my wrist created a deep release in my whole body, how my shoulders felt so relaxed and open and how peaceful my mind was at the end of a session. I felt that my needs were listened to and met by my practitioner. It was like a conversation between my body and the therapist.

Shiatsu is rooted in the traditions of oriental medicine, modern anatomy and physiology theory and Zen Shiatsu. It works on the whole person, not only on the physical body but also the emotional, mental and spiritual aspect of the person. It is a physical therapy that helps with correction and maintenance of bones, joints, tendons, muscles and meridian lines.

Shiatsu uses non-invasive touch, comfortable pressure, stretches and gentle manipulative techniques to support and strengthen the body’s natural ability to heal and balance itself. It is a deeply nurturing and relaxing experience. Alongside conventional medical care, Shiatsu can also help to improve quality of life and bring comfort to certain clients living with chronic conditions.

When our body and mind are functioning well, we feel healthy. Being healthy also means vitality and connection with our social and physical environment.
Shiatsu encourages you to make changes in your life in order to find the positive way of improving your quality of life.

Cost for 1hr treatment: £50
