About the Session

Sessions last an hour and you should wear loose flexible clothing

About the Session

The session commences with an initial conversation followed by some physical treatment which is performed on a futon mat on the floor. During the first session  with a client the initial dialogue will occupy more time to determine the clients issues and medical history. The client is fully clothed. Loose and flexible clothing is recommended as some stretching and body manipulation may be involved in the session. Wear similar clothes as you would to a yoga or gym class.

The philosophy underlying Shiatsu is that Qi flows throughout the body in a series of channels called meridians. For many different reasons Qi can stop flowing freely and this then produces a symptom.
