Your body has an amazing capacity to heal itself. Release your own healing power through enjoyable, relaxing Shiatsu bodywork therapy.
You can achieve wellness through the skilled manipulation of meridians (energy channels) and pressure points. The application of Shiatsu can guide you toward optimal health and well-being.
One of the seven branches of Asian medicine, Shiatsu is based on principles that have been used for thousands of years. It is rooted in the laws of nature.
Using a nurturing yet effective two-handed palming technique, Jo Anne works and stretches your body. You lie in different positions on a futon/floor mat wearing loose, comfortable clothes to allow for full movement. The level of pressure is based on each person’s individual needs and should not be painful.
Experience the Benefits of Five Element Shiatsu
Disease often begins in the emotional/spiritual realm of the energetic body. When we are out of balance, symptoms arise in our body systems (digestive, elimination, circulatory or respiratory systems). All types of pain or distress are a plea to pay attention to our selves.
While Shiatsu may be able to treat aspects of most ailments, the conditions most widely recognized for effective treatment include:
- Anxiety and depression
- Muscular tension
- Digestive disturbances
- Menstrual problems
- Immune issues
Shiatsu also works well for musculoskeletal issues such as backaches; sprains and strains; joint pain; or neck and shoulder stiffness.
