Acupressure/Shiatsu

Shiatsu

Developed in Japan, shiatsu is a finger-pressure technique utilizing the traditional acupuncture points of Oriental healing. Similar to acupressure, shiatsu concentrates on unblocking the flow of life energy and restoring balance in the meridians and organs in order to promote self-healing. With the client reclining, the practitioner applies pressure with the finger, thumb, palm, elbow, or knee to specific zones on the skin located along the energy meridians. The treatment brings about a sense of relaxation while stimulating blood and lymphatic flow. The benefits of this treatment may include pain relief and a strengthening of the body’s resistance to disease and disorder.

Lymphatic massage

Lymphatic drainage is a gentle, rhythmical technique designed to improve circulation, oxygenate the skin, and decrease swelling (edemas) of the body.This technique can reduce pain, swelling and inflammation of the body’s tissues and assists recovery from surgeries and injuries by reducing formation of scar tissue.

The proper functioning of the lymphatic system is critical to the body’s ability to detoxify and regenerate tissues, filter out toxins and foreign substances, and maintain a healthy immune system.
