This rhythmically soothing massage involves application of concise acupressure combined coordinated breathing, and stretches for the meridian system. Pressure is applied using fingers, palms, and elbows. In some practices treatment is fine with the use of the practitioners bare feet. (Foot pressure is not used here at Absolute Therapy). The Shiatsu practitioner follows a traditional kata, or sequence, that strategically treats along the mapped meridian system and major acupressure points. This sequence can be arranged to focus on the ares of your priority. Blockages in the meridian system are observed as areas of excessive Qi or depleted Qi. The practitioner has a trained sensitivity to the signs of these blockages. Through the Shiatsu massage blockages of depletion will be stimulated for activation and areas of excess will be calmed for a release.
Shiatsu is revered for is systematic effects on the body. For this reason follow up care is crucial. Detox symptoms are common. Many recipients have a immediate need to use the toilet after a treatment. This massage will get things moving. We encourage attentive self care ( such as hydrating, walking, and rest) for at least the following 24hrs of treatment as your body recalibrates it’s natural rhythms.
