What is Shiatsu?

Shiatsu is a Japanese technique which belongs to the old tradition of acupuncture.

Shiatsu is a prophylactic treatment that considers the human being a unity of body, mind and soul.

If a Shiatsu therapist makes a basic diagnosis (based on Oriental medicine) of someone with an illness, he is able to develop an individual treatment for that person.
The therapist serves as a means of motivating one’s own “healing energy”. Energy (Chi) flows in lines (meridians) through the entire body. These meridians are all connected and work together forming a network similar to the blood-circulation and the nervous system. The meridian network provides the organs with energy.

Shiatsu has proved to offer a person more vitality and well-being as well as providing an overall elimination of suffering.
