What does a shiatsu massage look like?

You receive a shiatsu massage with your clothes on.  Just put loose clothes on, if possible, in natural cloth and then lie on the ground on a futon laid on a tatami (japanese mat).

A massage lasts about one hour.

Pressures are made with the thumbs (sometimes palms, elbows, kneels…) on some parts of the body. We might make some stretching exercises, or have a relaxing or energising massage.

Some parts of the body might be painful. Pain, when it occurs, must have a good effect. Sometimes you have to go through that. However, pain is not a must and your feedback will help to adjust pressure, if necessary.

Show has no place in shiatsu. Immediate or spectacular results can be obtained, but this is not really important. The real work takes place deeply and slowly.

The touch is relaxing or energizing, never strong.

And how many times do you “have to” come?

It depends on your needs: therapy or relaxation? And also on your health: are you feeling well or bad? A follow up might be necessary to get rid of some problems or to strenghthen your general condition.

In such cases we will make an agreement You are the only one who will decide on it.
