Shiatsu is a beautifully simple yet deeply relaxing traditional hands on therapy. Originating in Japan, Shiatsu is literally translated in Japanese from Shi, meaning finger and atsu, meaning pressure. Shiatsu is often described as acupuncture without needles as it originates from the holistic system of traditional Chinese medicine. In Chinese medicine, harmony of energy or ‘ki’ within the human body is conceived as being essential to health and illness is thought to result from imbalance in the natural flow of energy throughout the body.
During a Shiatsu treatment Johanna uses a range of techniques, rocking, palming, gentle stretches, soft tissue manipulation and acupressure massage to harmonise natural energy flow. A Shiatsu treatment is usually carried out on the floor on a futon mattress. Clients wear loose comfortable clothing that allow for movement. Johanna works with wide ranging issues including stress, anxiety, muscular aches and pains, women’s health (inc. pregnancy, postnatal, menopause) and simply providing help with relaxation.
