"Healing is a matter of time
but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity."


Shiatsu is a Japanese word meaning “finger pressure”. It is a new name for the oldest form of medicine - healing with hands. Shiatsu follows similar principles to Chiropractic or western massage .The thumbs, palms, and fingers - (no knees or elbows) - are used to apply pressure to specific areas of the body. After taking the complaints and symptoms you are experiencing and, depending on your general energy levels, the fractioned will use a variety of techniques to improve your energy flow. These may include gentle holding, pressing with palms, thumbs, fingers, elbows, knees and feet on the meridians and, when appropriate, more dynamic rotations and stretches.

Shiatsu practitioners will often recommend a change in the diet plan for their customers. Various types of foods differ in their physical, mental, spiritual and emotional effects. This energy is split into two parts known as Yin and Yang. Yin is where energy is expanding and yang is where it is contracting. Food can be divided into three main types-those that are 'balanced', and some that are yin and others which are yang.

Examples of Yin and Yang foods:

Yin: Milk, alcohol, honey, sugar, oil, fruit juice, spice, stimulants, refined foods.

Yang:Seafood, poultry, eggs, meat, salt, fish, cheese.
