What is Zen Shiatsu?

Zen Shiatsu is a hands-on therapy that uses traditional oriental diagnosis and supportive acu-pressure to balance the energy pathways of your body. It is often referred to as “acupuncture without the needles.”

But Shiatsu goes beyond simply pressing points in the body. It is a holistic therapy designed to uplift and harmonise your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.

  • neck and shoulder pain
  • stress
  • insomnia
  • lower back pain
  • migraines
  • menstrual irregularities
  • post-natal depression
  • RSI
  • jet-lag

What is Zen Shiatsu like?

A treatment involves you lying on a futon mat or massage table, wearing loose-fitting clothing or a kimono, and covered by a sheet.

By working along the meridians (energy pathways) of the body, touching on specific acu-pressure points, and rebalancing your energy, Zen Shiatsu creates a feeling of deep relaxation as well as renewed vitality.

As your inner vitality increases, so too does your sense of well-being.
This supports your body’s natural ability to deal with stress, pain and illness.

Yet you don’t have to be ill to benefit from a treatment. That’s because Zen Shiatsu is a genuine preventative therapy and a real pleasure to receive at any time.

A qualified Zen Shiatsu Therapist can also offer additional support with corrective yoga exercises, nutritional guidance, and holistic counselling.
