Shiatsu Massage As A Healing Modality
The basic philosophy of oriental medicine is that the main cause of disease is the unbalanced chi (or life force energy) in the body. Shiatsu massage is used to balance the flow of chi in the human body. Shiatsu massage therapy is not intended to heal specific diseases. Rather, Shiatsu has a direct affect on your energetic meridians which, when properly cleared and balanced, help to unblock your chi (life force energy). Such blockages or stagnations are the precursors to many health problems.
Shiatsu massage therapists can detect subtle variations in your energy and then apply pressure on the appropriate Shiatsu points. This pressure has a profound effect on your inner body and can help to improve your physical and mental well being. Shiatsu massage therapy is based on a spirit of kindness and compassion.
Shiatsu massage uses the same points or meridians as does acupuncture, but without the needles. During your Shiatsu massage therapy session, your therapist will, from time to time, ask you to change your position, and you may lie on your back, your stomach and on your sides. This provides the therapist with the opportunity to work on each required energetic point of your meridians in order to clear any existing energy blockages or stagnation which, when left untreated, often lead to pain or disease.
