ABOUT "SHIATSU"

Shiatsu is a Japanese non-invasive therapy used to stimulate the body’s self healing ability. The word shiatsu literally translates to “finger pressure.” Shiatsu therapy involves the application of manual pressure to specific areas of the body in order to assess and treat various issues. Shiatsu treatments have an influence on the nervous system, therefore improving organ functions and reducing muscle tensions . Shiatsu uses specific passageways called the 12 meridians, originally believed in Chinese medicine to house and conduct the flow of “Chi” energy into 12 different organs of the body. Shiatsu heals the body indirectly by stimulating the Chi going towards specific organs.

 

AKI SHIATSU provides a variety of shiatsu massage.

AKI NAGATA (CMP)

        Aki first became interested in Shiatsu as

a young child after his fathers back pain disease has been successfully released. Shiatsu was not a common practice then, but they had someone perform it on his father while Aki watched. Aki continued the treatment when the practitioner wasn’t available.

As a result, the father recovered without any medicine or surgery, shocking everyone.

         

        Inspired and determined to continue helping other people, Aki decided to pursue shiatsu as a practitioner 30 years ago. Since then, he has performed Shiatsu on many people and healed all types of symptoms.

 

“We are so glad you have chosen to work with us. We know that you will feel the difference after one session. You will feel relaxed, lighter and invigorated.”
