A wonderful aspect of Zen Shiatsu is that it is versatile in assisting your body to be restored on a physical, mental, and emotional level.
In modern life, it is fairly common for people to experience the symptoms of stress, fatigue, sleep issues, irritability, or joint pain. Shiatsu massage is a very helpful, non-intrusive modality to turn these issues around.
This bodywork therapy is suitable for all ages, as each treatment is tailored to the person and their needs. Various techniques are used to resolve tension, aches and pains, and other symptoms of stress.
It encourages relaxation to harmonise your mind and body, as it moves your nervous system from the alert state of 'fight or flight' to the safe state of 'rest and digest', so your comfort throughout the session is important.
When your body is working in harmony, your digestion, sleep, and general outlook greatly improve.
Zen Shiatsu Treatments
Shiatsu is a Japanese holistic treatment. It uses various techniques to work with your meridians, which are the energy channels in your body. Along those pathways there are acupoints, which are stimulated with finger pressure to release blockages and to increase the flow of energy in your body - no needles are used, and you are fully dressed in flexible clothing to benefit from the treatment.
Traditionally, Shiatsu treatments are done on futon mattress laid on the floor. During a session, even gentle pressure is applied with care with palms, knees, and elbows to treat your muscles, fascia, meridians, and acupoints. These are areas in the body where energy can be blocked, inhibiting the natural flow of your system. Gentle joint manipulation and passive stretches are used to relax the muscles and increase blood flow. When this is all integrated into regular treatments while caring for your main issue, it can benefit your breathing as it becomes deeper and more steady, makes you aware of your body, and leaves you feeling tranquil.
I was seeing Adrian for around 6 months and worked wonders for me ... such a lovely experience & lovely man ... makes you feel soooo relaxed & chilled.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Adrian Is a very sensitive practitioner and works like a detective to find the culprit in the body.
The treatment is very relaxing
and mostly done on a futon on the floor.
After the first session I noticed an improvement in walking and using stairs.
The treatments are gentle but effective. Stretching and manipulation of pressure points have relieved soreness and improved flexibility. I am very pleased with the results of the treatments.
