Shiatsu is a complete massage, which is applied to the whole body, working from the toes to the head. Sometimes there may be painful spots, especially in blocked points, but usually it is a massage that causes deep relaxation.
What a Shiatsu massage is like
The Shiatsu Massage technique is done on a futon (special mattress). The client wears comfortable clothing such as pajamas or cotton clothes and the masseur uses his or her hands, knees, legs and feet to exert pressure and stretch during the massage. Shiatsu Massage combines stretching, compression, joint mobilization and stimulation of certain points of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
One of the advantages of Shiatsu is that it can be received by people of all ages, including pregnant women and people with chronic illnesses.
Benefits of Shiatsu massage
Shiatsu is usually used as treatments with periodic sessions for loss of mobility after suffering injuries, to increase flexibility, muscle and bone pain, sciatica, lumbago, etc. And it is also recommended as a single session on those terrible days where we notice how we are dragging all the weight of work, home, children, etc. El resultado es inmejorable: una sensación de alivio, como si te quitaran todo ese peso de encima, consiguiendo que los pies se deslicen sobre el suelo de la manera más ligera posible.
Shiatsu helps you sleep better, relaxes you and increases your energy level. Additionally, shiatsu is beneficial in combating stress, headaches, chronic pain, hormonal imbalances, menstrual pain, fatigue, irritability, depression and muscle spasms among other ailments.
