  certified practitioner of Shiatsu

   and Thai yoga massage






What is Shiatsu?

Shiatsu is based in Traditional Chinese Medicine, which views disease as an imbalance in the flow of life energy, called chi or ki. Chi flows through the body along specific pathways called meridians. The Shiatsu practitioner applies pressure along the meridians to help unblock and rebalance the flow of energy so the body can once again access its natural ability to heal itself.


From the perspective of Western science, shiatsu calms an overactive sympathetic nervous system, which reduces stress, improves circulation, relieves stiff muscles, and improves organ functions and joints.


How does it feel?

When you receive a session, you will lie in a relaxed position while I apply gentle stretching and pressure along the meridians and on specific energy points related to your condition. It gives you vitality, well-being, and a deep sense of relaxation.


My approach is holistic; each session addresses the whole body, as well as the immediate symptoms. The treatments are preventative as well as curative.


Shiatsu is especially effective to improve:

  • stress and anxiety

  • insomnia and tiredness

  • emotional disturbance

  • back pain

  • neck and shoulder pain

  • muscle tension and pain

  • headache

  • constipation and digestive problems
