What is Shiatsu?
Shiatsu incorporates gentle manipulation of the limbs and joints, encourages movement and circulation of blood and qi, stimulates the circulatory, lymphatic and hormonal systems and can also be a deep meditative practice beyond just the physical. It falls in the category of preventative health encompassing the physical body, psychological, emotional and spiritual aspects of being.
Shiatsu treatments are fully clothed and oil free. It is a calm and deeply relaxing practice naturally but also powerful and dynamic. This well being practice can promote energy flow and help relieve tension with the use of various TCM techniques and tools to support and help regulate the nervous system.
Evelyn combines shiatsu therapy with Chi Nei Tsang, a visceral form of massage therapy, applied to the abdomen and used to stimulate and manipulate muscles, connective tissue, organs and lymphatic, circulatory and nervous systems. Abdominal organ massage is believed to release tension, prevent stagnation of blood, improve the flow of energy into the abdominal region, allow detoxification and enhance the immune system.
