What to expect from the shiatsu treatment?
The shiatsu treatment takes place at the floor level on a futon. It is possible to recieve shiatsu on a chair too, supported by the cushions if the client is unable to lie down.
It is advisable to turn up in/with loose comfortable clothes. Wearing jeans is not suitable.
Avoid coffee, alcohol and heavy meals before the treatment.
The treatment takes usually 1 hour, the very first session might take 1 hour and 1/4 as it involves taking a detailed case history of client's actual state of health.
After the treatment the client might feel still deeply relaxed for a good 1/2 an hour. So it's advised to take it easy..
Please, drink a lot of water after the treatment to flush out the released toxins.
What happens during the treatment?
The shiatsu treatment is based on practitioner's sensitivity to one's energy levels at all the meridians, the organ's energetic pathways. Our vital energy runs around this system of pathways and for various reasons it could stop flow freely and get obstruct. According the initial health assessment, the client's current energy levels and the constitution will the practitioner use various techniques (e.g. stretching and loosening of joints and ligaments, rotations, palming, finger pressing, etc.) to smooth and rebalance the flow of the body energy.
The treatment usually leads to deep relaxation.
