Shiatsu for tension & stress, Exeter & Dawlish, Devon

Shiatsu can be great at relieving tension & stress in the body. As it is given, generally, on a futon mat on the floor & always through clothes it can be quite a physical form of massage therapy. There can be, when appropriate, great stretches & rotation of limbs & joints, relieving tensions held by the body. Shiatsu is also given when the client is in various positions, including on their side, this allows the shoulders to be worked on & areas of the body to be early focussed on. 

Shiatsu works on many different levels, physical, mental, spiritual & emotional. The body holds a physical memory of our lives, stresses & strains. Sometimes the tension is relieved by working with the emotional connection to it or the mental strain that has helped cause the tension. This working on different levels can sometimes unlock tension & stress in the body when a solely physical approach is not enough.

Shiatsu massage is also a gentle form of hands-on therapy. It can help release tension in more delicate areas, such as the neck. Shiatsu works with the the quiet areas of the body, the areas where there isn’t much energy, sometimes these are the weaker areas. By working these areas first the body can be more responsive when working the areas where the tension is held. Shiatsu massage aims to balance the body & when this begins to happen the weaker areas can feel stronger & the tight areas can feel more relaxed.
