Shiatsu is formidable hands-on healing art, based on the theory of Chinese Medicine and the use of skilful touch. We use the thumbs, fingers and palms to stimulate, nourish, engage the flow of energy (Qi) in the body, mainly through application of touch, pressure and mind-set or what is called ‘modelling’ to the Acupuncture Meridians and points.
We cannot claim (because we are not allowed to) to treat many diseases as labelled and quantified by the western medical model, but that does not matter, because we try and understand the pattern of Health and Dis-ease as described in Chinese Medicine and treat the relevant Meridians and Acu points accordingly.
When dis-ease has manifested or penetrated more deeply Chinese Herbal Medicines can be helpful, or Homeopathy, and definitely a healthy diet above all else!!
An appointment at the Centre takes an hour. I work there on Tuesdays and Fridays.
