Trained in the United States and in Thailand. Sessions run 30 min – 120 min. Upon request bodywork/massage sessions can be shared by two people with two Thai Bodywork Practitioners.
Shiatsu is Japanese for “finger pressure” — Shiatsu delivers deep, moderate, or light pressure toward the center of the body, and in this way each point of contact is felt throughout the whole body.
The nature of zen shiatsu increases one’s capacity to relax into movement which is assisted with the practitioner’s support of graceful two-handed finger pressure, making use of knees and sometimes elbows locating trigger points as used in acupressure. Assisted by the flow of breath an improvised movement interacting with the receiver’s own range of motion, the body is simultaneously guided to relax and be held as a child to a mother. Thus, a Shiatsu treatment can be focused on aches and pains, mobility and rehabilitation, internal organ functioning, or emotional and spiritual balancing.
Performed fully clothed on a firm futon mat on the floor in varied positions depending on the points that are being accessed our certified Shiatsu Practitioners. Sessions run 30 min – 120 min.
Private yoga sessions are available upon request. It does not necessarily mean one-on-one session. Group of friends or colleagues, etc are welcome to have a closed to public yoga class at a convenient time. We recommend getting a massage before or after yoga class. The combination of the two gives best long lasting results.
