SHIATSU BODYWORK

Our Shiatsu is a mix of Japanese Namikoshi style and Chinese Anma massage done over loose comfortable clothing.  We use palm, thumb and elbow pressure mixed with stretching and exersicing techniques. This is one of the most relaxing yet therapeutic experiences out there, thanks to its firm but gentle pressure. With its roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine its benefits go far beyond relaxation though.  Some issues that Shiatsu is great for include:

‚Äč

  • Headaches

  • PMS

  • Digestive Disorders

  • Insomnia

  • Chronic Pain

  • Fatigue

  • Stress and Anxiety

  • Musculoskeletal pain (including low back, neck and joints) 

ADD ON CUPPING

Cups are applied to the skin providing a vacuum that helps to move stagnation and improve blood flow. Cupping does leave circular marks on the skin that usually fade in 5-10 days.

Helps with:

  • Loosening muscles

  • Moving stagnation

  • Easing muscle pain

ADD ON GUA SHA

A Chinese medical treatment in which the skin is "scraped" releasing "unhealthy elements" from injured areas, loosening up tight muscles and stimulating blood flow and healing. This treatment does not usually cause pain but may leave dark "bruising" for 5-10 days.
