Shiatsu in Melbourne

If you're looking for a great way to maintain good health, it's time to try Shiatsu in Melbourne. This ancient alternative therapy has been an important part of Chinese medicine for centuries.

Many people believe the practice originated in Japan. In fact, the therapy was introduced to Japan by a Buddhist monk in the 6th century. The Japanese then fully developed the treatment to what we know today.

Shiatsu in Melbourne

Shiatsu is another of those therapies that work on the theory of meridians, the defined pathways that allow our life force or energy to flow through our bodies. In Eastern medicine, when the meridians are blocked, the body gets sick.

Shiatsu is a hands-on therapy but it is somewhat different to traditional massage. The therapist uses hands and feet to apply pressure to key areas of the body. This is combined with stretches and gentle joint rotation to relieve nervous tension, increase blood flow, boost hormone production and expel toxins.

Headaches and Migraines

Over time Shiatsu has been shown to be highly effective in treating muscle and joint pain and injuries. It is also claiming great results in treating people for headaches and migraines, allergies, asthma, RSI, insomnia and more.

There are several variations of Shiatsu, the most common in Australia being Zen Shiatsu.

Zen Shiatsu focuses on balancing energy flow to manage stress and improve overall health. It provides relief on several levels, including emotional, internal and musculoskeletal.

Find Your Local Therapist

Don't be fooled into thinking anyone can offer Shiatsu. It is a specialised field and therapists train intensely. Part of their skill is being able to see what's wrong even before they probably examine you. Zen Shiatsu practitioners can almost sense the problem.

Unlike a massage you remain fully clothed for your shiatsu session, so choose something loose and comfortable. Treatment may be given to you sitting or lying. Traditionally, a futon mattress on the floor is used.
