Treatments


Shiatsu is different from other physical therapies because you stay fully clothed, usually lying on a comfortable treatment table or sitting on a chair. Treatment normally lasts about 45 minutes, though the first treatment is longer as a case history is taken.

All ages from babies to the elderly may be safely treated.



What happens during a treatment?
In the first session I will ask about your health and personal history to decide on the best approach.
Progress is monitored at each session and the treatment is then tailored to your symptoms as these change.
After shiatsu it is common to feel relaxed and invigorated.
Sometimes there may be mild reactions for a day or so such as changes in digestion, slight stiffness or emotional release.


What do I need to bring?
For each session you need to wear loose, comfortable clothing such as a tracksuit or leggings (cotton is best).
You also need to bring details of any current medical treatment and your GP's diagnosis.
Please do not wear heavy makeup or strong perfume or aftershave.

It is not advisable to have a heavy meal two hours prior to treatment.
Do not drink alcohol, or stimulant drinks and coffee before and after treatment.


After treatment?
It is advisable to drink plenty of water, to cleanse the body of any released toxins, and to ease the flow of energy in the body.
If at all possible, avoid stressful or strenuous activities after your session.


How many treatments will be needed?
This will depend on your health, but commonly a course of 4 or 5 treatments is beneficial. Long term or chronic conditions may take longer. The more active your participation, the more effective the treatments will be.
Many clients enjoy regular shiatsu because it helps them stay healthy.
