A full body Shiatsu treatment is delivered to a fully dressed client on a futon mat although some practitioners work on a massage table. The session often begins with gentle stretching and manipulation techniques to help stimulate the movement of energy and to relax the muscles, re-balancing the whole body before specific symptoms are dealt with. Pressure can be applied to both wide areas as well as precise points and varies according to the body’s needs. Sometimes the pressure can be gentle and calming, other times it can be deeply stimulating; it all depends on the specific needs of the individual. Shiatsu is always characterized by a deeply connecting way of touch, by the flow of the various movements and by a clear presence of the practitioner. This will help you to relax, let go and become aware of yourself and your own process and potential.
