Shiatsu position How can Shiatsu benefit you?

Shiatsu uses gentle pressure to the body to unblock energy and influence the flow in the Meridians. Gentle or more dynamic stretches, rocking and joint rotations may be used. Once energy flow is established you will feel the benefits on many levels..physical, mental and emotional.  In western terms the sympathetic nervous system is calmed, and the parasympathetic takes over creating a space for deep healing to occur.

People report to feeling deeply relaxed, calm with a sense of well-being.
