Goran Stanojević – Little Shiatsu Magic
Shiatsu Basics: Massage Therapy at Your Place
Shiatsu is a specific form of healing touch, a therapeutic massage and bodywork that derives from methods rooted in ancient history, developed to improve one’s health. This type of therapy uses the principles of the meridian healing system in order to harmonize life energy in the body as well as to help restore back full function of parts of the body that were affected by a health issue. It is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (just like acupuncture).
Shiatsu treatment rebalances and improves the flow of life energy through the meridians (meridians conduct energy or chi that passes through the body following invisible pathways) so it restores our vitality. To stimulate the flow of chi, a practitioner uses touch, comfortable pressure techniques over acupuncture points often done using fingers, palms, elbows and knees.
Encouraging and allowing both the giver and the receiver space to integrate change on all levels makes Shiatsu a useful tool for initiating or accepting change.
