I'm a registered Shiatsu Therapist, belonging to Shiatsu Therapy Association of BC.
Among many styles of Shiatsu taught and practiced in Japan and throughout the world, I practice Zen shiatsu therapy which focuses not only on the physical aspects of the person but also works from an energetic perspective. Zen shiatsu has its roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory. As acupuncture does, shiatsu utilizes the understanding that there are distinct energy channels (meridians) and particular points throughout the body that are instrumental in maintaining balance and harmony of 'ki' or life-force energy of one's body. Zen shiatsu employs the techniques of manual pressure along with passive stretches and joint rotations to stimulate the body's natural healing ability to release energy blocks and balance 'ki' flows, which in turn will boost the immune system.
