Banstead Village Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a holistic Japanese healing therapy. A complete medical system which has evolved over 3,000 years in Japan and China.

Shiatsu can help a wide range of conditions from specific injuries to general symptoms of poor health. Your practitioner is trained to respond to energy flow in the body. This vital energy, known as Ki in Japan (Qi or Chi) flows through the body by means of a series of meridians.

These, for many reasons, can become blocked causing Ki to stop flowing freely. Using pressure points Shiatsu unblocks the meridians so the flow of energy (Ki) is brought back to balance so stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The symptoms associated with the imbalance can gradually improve.
