Ottawa Shiatsu Massage What is Shiatsu?

Shiatsu (Japanese from shi, meaning finger, and atsu, meaning pressure) is a traditional hands-on therapy originating in Japan.

Shiatsu is a form of therapeutic massage in which pressure is applied with the thumbs and palms to acupressure points along the body's energy pathways (meridians) in order to stimulate physical relaxation and reduce stress.

In addition to thumb and palm pressure, gentle stretches, joint rotations are applied to provide for a deep, relaxing treatment. With Shiatsu, you remain fully clothed. Loose, comfortable clothing is recommended.

Treatment Time

A treatment is 60 minutes.

Effects and Benefits of Shiatsu

The immediate effect from a treatment differs with each individual. You may have feelings of increased vitality and relaxation. Because of the deep relaxation that usually occurs and the stimulus to the major body systems, you may have some healing reactions. Some people feel cold or flu-like symptoms, aches and pains, tiredness, lethargy, or headaches after the first treatment.

In general, any such effects you may experience are positive signs from your body telling you it is making an attempt to correct its own condition in a natural way. These are signs of elimination and the beginning of the healing process. Shiatsu improves health generally by relieving stress, calming the nervous system and stimulating the circulatory and immune systems.

Shiatsu can help alleviate the pain associated with a wide range of conditions. It is particularly effective for stress-related tension and illnesses, insomnia, back pain, headaches, anxiety, constipation, and digestive upsets. Shiatsu can be especially useful for muscular-skeletal problems.
