Shiatsu massage


Shiatsu massage

Shiatsu is a manual therapy originating from Japan. It integrates traditional Japanese manual therapies such as acupuncture and anma, an ancient style of Japanese massage, with Western medical knowledge.

Shiatsu has its roots in the concept of Qi. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qi is the life force that drives all life activities. They believe that health occurs when Qi flows unhindered. When it becomes deficient or blocked, symptoms such as body aches, headaches and digestive problems appear. Qi is sometimes described as a “flow of energy”. Qi is believed to be channeled through certain pathways in the human body, known as meridians, causing a variety of effects.

A shiatsu practitioner applies pressure to the body’s meridians to balance or unblock the flow of energy (Qi). In Japanese, shiatsu means “finger pressure”. Shiatsu techniques include massage with fingers, thumbs, elbows, knuckles, feet and palms; acupressure and assisted stretching.

To assess a client in shiatsu, a practitioner uses palpation and, sometimes, pulse and tongue diagnosis. He uses various techniques to relieve conditions, reduce tension and pain, and improve overall health.

When you make an appointment, you are making a commitment to the therapist and other clients. This commitment includes that you will be there at the time and on the day requested. If you cancel too close to the time of your appointment, your therapist is penalized and you have deprived another client of an appointment at that time. For these reasons, if you need to cancel an appointment, we ask that you do so at least 24 hours in advance. If you do not respect this policy, a fee of 50% of the scheduled treatment price will be applied*.

(100% of the scheduled treatment rate could be applied if the situation is repetitive) *Exceptions may apply (eg: COVID
