Shiatsu Massage Treatment

Shiatsu massage treatment is available at our Leyton clinic with Ruth Lander. Shiatsu is a deeply relaxing holistic massage therapy that originates from Japan. The principles of shiatsu are rooted in the traditions of Oriental medicine, but shiatsu is also influenced by modern Western therapies.

Shiatsu uses the same energy channels and pressure points as acupuncture, but the practitioner uses their hands rather than needles.

Shiatsu massage is a deeply relaxing experience and regular treatments can alleviate stress, muscular tension and illness, helping to maintain health and wellbeing.

Deeply Relaxing

Shiatsu is a profoundly relaxing experience, simultaneously helping you to tune into your body, while encouraging your mind to become calm.

Recent research shows that shiatsu can help with relaxation, reducing muscular tension, improving sleep and increasing energy levels.

Shiatsu treatments are often sought for back, neck and shoulder pain, sports injuries and all stress related issues.

Shiatsu is commonly used for:

Muscular pain

Sports injuries

Migraine and tension headaches

Digestive problems

Stress

Anxiety

General wellbeing

Shiatsu can help to:

  • Restore your body’s natural balance and promote its own healing process.
  • Reduce muscular tension and pain
  • Increase vitality and flexibility
  • Reduce the build-up of stress in your daily life

What to expect from a shiatsu treatment

During the treatment the practitioner works with the whole body using touch, comfortable pressure and manipulative techniques to release tension and tight muscles, adjust the body’s physical structure and balance its energy flow.

As shiatsu works on the whole body it addresses the underlying causes as well as the symptoms.

The client remains fully clothed during the treatment and no massage oil is used. It is best for the client to wear loose comfortable clothing and socks.

Rejuvenating Facial Shiatsu Massage

This is a deeply relaxing facial massage, integrated with acupressure points to relax and enliven the face and neck. This combination promotes blood circulation, improves muscle tone and lymph drainage from the face, as well as bringing vitality and energy to the facial tissues.

The practitioner starts the treatment by releasing tension from the shoulders, upper back and neck. Techniques are then used on the face to tone and deeply relax the facial muscles. Some acupressure points are included to ‘lift’ the face. No oils or products are used.
