SHIATSU MASSAGE TREATMENTS


SHIATSU MASSAGE TREATMENTS AT MANCHESTER THERAPY CENTRE

Shiatsu massage treatments are available Monday to Friday 10.00 am - 8.00 pm and Saturday 10.00 am - 5.00 pm.

Shiatsu is a Japanese word: "shi" meaning finger, and "atsu" meaning pressure. Shiatsu massage is a combination of many different techniques, including pressing, hooking, sweeping, shaking, rotating, grasping, vibrating, patting, plucking, lifting, pinching, rolling and brushing.

A shiatsu massage treatment usually takes place at floor level on a futon or padded mat. Comfortable loose clothing is worn for the treatment to provide ease of movement for the assisted stretches. The shiatsu massage therapist works along the meridians using techniques to encourage and release the flow of energy in the meridians. Particular acupressure points are also chosen to remedy any energy imbalances.

Shiatsu benefits each person differently, depending on their condition when they are treated, as well as their pre-existing medical and hereditary conditions. Generally, Shiatsu stimulates a relaxation or parasympathetic response in the recipient's body. The nervous system is stimulated; reducing pain and relaxing muscles. Respiration becomes more regular, slower and deeper. Circulation improves allowing the body to warm up or cool off more effectively and consistently. Hormones, which help the body maintain a state of balance, are also affected positively by shiatsu massage. Improved digestion, bowel evacuation and sleeping patterns are other benefits for the patient.

All shiatsu massage therapists at the Manchester Therapy Centre are fully qualified and experienced.

Most people say they feel physically lighter, looser in their muscles and more mentally at ease after a shiatsu massage treatment. The effects of shiatsu are usually noticeable up to three days after a treatment. For general health maintenance, patients are advised to have a shiatsu massage treatment as often as once a week or at least once every three weeks.

A shiatsu massage treatment can last up to  90 minutes and is most effective if alcohol and heavy meals are avoided on the day of treatment.
