Shiatsu is a unique form of holistic bodywork that provides the satisfaction of touch along with a profound experience of energy balancing. It is based on thousands of years of Eastern philosophy, traditional Chinese medicine TCM and other healing methods. Shiatsu directly addresses the meridian pathways within the body that channel Ki energy… the essence of our life.

We experience this energy in the form of movement, communication, breathing, digestion, thoughts, feelings and spirituality. Any blockage or stagnation of energy within the meridians can lead to physical, psychological and emotional illness. Zen Shiatsu helps to balance energy on all levels, through a clinically therapeutic and deeply relaxing musculoskeletal treatment.

The Shiatsu I practice is Zen Shiatsu (developed by Master Masunaga) and consists of stretching and mobilizations, pressures with my hands, fingers or forearms, working the meridians of our body and some energy points of traditional Chinese medicine.

In some cases, in a complementary way, I can work the fascia in biodynamics: it means that I accompany in a very subtle way the internal movement of our organism in the self-regulation of the body and its self-healing. The work of the fascia (connective tissue) allows relieving deeper pains (emotional or physical).

The Shiatsu session

The session lasts 60 minutes. Zen Shiatsu is practiced in the traditional way, on a futon directly on the floor (mattress). The person has to come with comfortable clothes, which cover the whole body, and which allow wide movements (e.g. leggings or tracksuit with a T-shirt). It begins with an energetic diagnosis of the Hara (abdomen) and an oral exchange in which the patient explains his/her need. Each session is adapted to the person and his or her state at the time of the meeting.
