Shiatsu at the Wellbeing Clinic, West Bridgford, Nottingham

Shiatsu is a holistic physical therapy. Originating from Japan, it is based on the Traditional Chinese Medicine understanding of chi or ki (vital energy) and the way that it flows around the body.

Shiatsu means ‘finger pressure’ in Japanese. The therapist uses touch, comfortable pressure, and manipulative techniques to adjust the body’s structure, and to balance energy flow.

Shiatsu is carried out whilst you lie fully-clothed on a soft futon mattress on the floor. This gives the therapist more space to use the various techniques. If lying down is impossible for you, shiatsu can also be practiced in a chair, a wheelchair, or even a bed.

Shiatsu can either be used to tackle specific health concerns, or for the maintenance of good health and vitality. Please wear loose fitting, comfortable clothes, preferably made of natural fibres.

Marie Krnakova, our shiatsu therapist, is a member of the Shiatsu Society, and a very experienced and well qualified complementary therapist.
