The healing effect of a Shiatsu treatment

Shiatsu / Acupressure / Bodywork Therapy

It is a gentle and suitable bodywork therapy for all ages, from infants to elderly.
It is a form of natural healing, it balances the body's energy and stimulates and enhances the body's own healing abilities. Shiatsu is a 5000 year old Chinese healing wisdom with ancient knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathology.

Shiatsu is a non-invasive therapy that helps contribute to overall well-being.

Shiatsu is a great way to help to slow down when you have pushed yourself too much from everyday life. 

Shiatsu can be used for a wide variety of internal musculoskeletal and emotional conditions, it is thought to reduce muscle stiffness, stimulate the skin, aid in digestion and influence the nervous system. Shiatsu is effective sports therapy, sports injuries are treated using gentle stretches and pressure points.

Shiatsu has shown to be effective for the pain and discomfort for many chronic conditions:

• Treats sports injuries
• Improves Circulation

• Reduces stress and tension as well as anxiety and depression
• Fatigue
• Insomnia
• Fibromyalgia
• Aids in treatment of musculoskeletal issues
• Aids in treatment of digestive disorders
• Treats PMS, morning sickness, and menstrual issues

The effect may be stimulating and invigorating or sedative and calming; depending on the goals of the session.
In the U.S. Shiatsu is considered a subset of massage therapy or acupuncture, but is in fact similar to both.

Stagnant energy can be considered a roadblock to wellness as it is the very definition of why we feel pain.

A Shiatsu treatment helps to bring balance back to our immune system.

Touch is powerful tool for helping stressful situations have less hold on our life, Shi-Atsu translates to the words finger-pressure.

Our worries and concerns do affect us, we all know that.
I am often asked by people why do I have all these KNOTS, in my body, the answer is because blood flow follows the energetic flow, these knots are real and are caused from discomfort on the physical, emotional or mental level.

When a person worries, this energy flows in many directions, and as such, will create circles and knots which eventually will prevent blood from flowing smoothly, especially in the spleen, stomach, and chest.

This knotting of energy will be abdominal distention, gastric discomfort, shoulder tension, breathlessness, or chest discomfort. But if worrying becomes a person's normal thought process, then chronic abdominal diseases will result.

Testimonials

After seeing numerous doctors, I was at my wit's end until I found Kim's Bodyworks. So far I've had three treatments and I'm like a new person. Thanks to Kim, I have more movement in my thumb, hand, and shoulder.  Whereas, prior to seeing Kim, I was unable to do even the most simple tasks with my hand because of a treadmill accident. I had not been able to sleep through the night because of all the pain and discomfort. But, now I'm getting a good night's sleep. I'm sure that I owe all of this to the exceptional massage therapy done by Kim. I have found Kim to be very skillful in her work and recommend going there.

I am often asked by people why do I have all these KNOTS, in my body, to which I respond, that because blood flow follows the energetic flow, these knots are real and are caused from discomfort on the physical, emotional or mental level.

When a person worries, this energy flows in many directions, and as such, will create circles and knots which eventually will prevent Qi from flowing smoothly, especially in the spleen, stomach, and chest.
This knotting of energy will be abdominal distention, gastric discomfort, shoulder tension, breathlessness, or chest discomfort. But if worrying becomes a person's normal thought process, then chronic abdominal diseases will result.

 No matter how much we try to turn off our mind, it is possible, sometimes going out for a brisk walk or another action does not give us the full relief we require to get the JOB of letting go of stress, but it is certain that not only does the mind relax during and after a Shiatsu treatment, it also strongly affects our ability to allow our spiritual path to be more receptive.
For instance, a writer that feels blocked can now know the best direction to move for the creative ‘juices’ to flow.
