Your Shiatsu Session

Shiatsu sessionA Shiatsu session takes approximately one hour. Extra time will be needed on the first visit in order to establish a detailed case history and personalise your treatment. A variety of techniques are used to determine which energy pathways (meridians) in the body are blocked and which are depleted or low in energy.

The treatment usually takes place on a futon on the floor and a special body cushion is used to provide maximum comfort. However, if the floor is not suitable for you, the treatment may be given in a chair or on a massage table. Following the treatment, recommendations may be given on gentle exercise and changes to lifestyle or dietary patterns to support health and well being.

The number of treatments required will depend on your general state of health and the acute or chronic nature of the conditions. Together we will establish a personalised treatment plan.
