Shiatsu - Japanese Massage Therapy

treatment centre wexfordJapanese Massage Therapy, or Shiatsu as it is known, is a method of massage therapy originating from Japan. This type of massage is similar to acupuncture without using needles. It is is based on finger pressure along different points. The treatment is based on the energy flow throughout the body, called “Chi” this energy is said to course throughout the body in “meridian” channels and at times it may get depleted or blocked.

Shiatsu massage is aimed at releasing this trapped energy therefore enabling it to flow throughout the body, restoring the natural balance, this is achieved by applying pressure to various points along those channels using mainly the thumbs, knuckles, palms and sometimes the use of feet, elbows and knees.

The massage can last between 30 to 90 minutes and the recipient will normally lie on a floor mat, unlike traditional massage loose clothing is usually worn throughout the session.

How Reiki energy works

We believe that we are all made up of energy. Every living thing in this universe is made from energy. Reiki is a pure form of universal energy, which can cleanse, heal, balance and remove any excess and negative energy that is present in a person’s body, Chackras, aura and in their environment. Sickness manifests when there is either excessive amounts of energy blocked in an area, or a lot of negative energy that has accumulated due to stress, emotional trauma and abusive patterns. Reiki is able to remove these blockages and negative build-ups in a gentle but thorough way. Blocked energy in the body is what causes illness we need to have an even flow of energy flowing freely through the body for health and well-being. It helps to heal the body mind and spirit on all levels.
