Shiatsu stretches for bedtime

Shiatsu massage is a powerful but gentle form of massage therapy that is suitable for all & it can support a large number of complaints. Most people can’t afford Shiatsu treatments as regularly as they would like so they look for lifestyle changes that they can make to support themselves, daily, between treatments. Because Shiatsu massage works with the energy in the body, getting it to flow & move with ease, stretching, meditation, diet & other lifestyle changes can help to keep the energy flowing, helping to alleviate complaints. 

At this time of year we should be resting as much as possible & if we are exercising it shou,d be gentle. When stretching it is always important to listen to your body & not push to far. Warming up is also important as is warming down. A great stretch to do at bedtime is the stretch relating to the Water element, relating to the 5 element diagnosis system that Shiatsu uses as one of its diagnosis tools. The water element governs sleep & rest as well as other things so bedtime is a great time to do it. It is a 2/3 minute stretch. Please see below for the the 2 steps in this stretch.
