Shiatsu Massage & Treatments in Eastbourne/Acupressure – £40
In a Shiatsu session the Practitioner uses pressure with thumbs, fingers, palms, and sometimes knees, elbows and feet, to induce deep relaxation and a feeling of well being. It is sometimes dynamic, sometimes seemingly quite static, involving pressure on the limbs and torso, as well as rotations, the kneading and releasing of tight muscles and supporting areas of weakness.
To receive, Shiatsu is deeply relaxing and yet invigorating, leaving a feeling of tranquillity and a sense of being in touch with every part of one’s body. Giving Shiatsu is a like performing a moving meditation and often leaves the giver feeling as balanced and energized as the receiver.
Shiatsu was developed from traditional oriental massage and, in common with acupuncture and other oriental therapies, it works on the body’s energetic system, using the network of meridians, or energy pathways, which connect to the internal organs, as well as relating to our emotional, psychological, spiritual harmony and well being.
The massage therapy is given with the client fully clothed, but preferably wearing loose fitting clothes to allow for movement. The client is asked to lie on a comfortable mat/futon (Japanese mattress) on the floor or In a seated position on a chair. There are also specially designed chairs to deliver an adapted form of this therapy that is called acupressure massage.
