Shiatsu is a form of massage that uses the same energy theory as acupuncture; but of course, without the needles. Initially, the practitioner will determine thru the pulses and inquiry what energy systems may need to be balanced. When she works on the client she is shifting the flow of energy thru different meridians and the organ systems they represent. This energy flow is the life force (chi) that we live by. Using pressure on particular points will disperse stuck energy or fill up energy depending on what is needed. Shiatsu is a form of bodywork that releases a lot of endorphins for general de-stressing which brings a sense of well being. Often an issue like a daily headache can be resolved in one session. Other health issues will take more sessions until the body adjusts to its new more balanced energy patterns. The client only need wear loose comfortable clothing in a session. The session ends with 10 ~ 15 minutes of "hot" stones along the back for deeper relaxation of the autonomic nervous system.
