Self Shiatsu, Exeter & Dawlish, Devon 

There are 6 stretches that relate to the meridians, lines of energy, that are worked on in Shiatsu massage. These stretches can be done away from a Shiatsu session. It’s great to do them daily, they stretch the meridians, bringing energy to places where there is little & loosening tightness & stagnation in other areas. 

As the stretches are done its important to remember to:

  • Gently warm up before & down after 
  • Listen to your body, be kind & don’t push to hard
  • Take a few breathes in each pose
  • Feel how your body reacts to each pose, tight, loose, easy, tough
  • If the pose feels good stay for a couple more breathes 
  • If the pose feels less good come out after a few breathes
  • Do each pose twice, feel the difference the second time

I am always happy to show how the stretches go at a Shiatsu massage session.
