Anne Tanner Shiatsu Macclesfield

Massage Therapist in Macclesfield, Cheshire
Massage Therapist in Macclesfield, Cheshire Shiatsu is a traditional hands-on healing therapy originating in Japan. It is a deeply relaxing experience which helps avoid the build up of stress, which is so much a part of modern life. It literally means finger pressure; however throughout the treatment the practitioner uses many techniques to aid the smooth flow of Qi in the body. This vital energy flows throughout the body in channels called meridians. For various reasons Qi is interrupted from flowing freely, thus causing many symptoms to occur. The practitioner uses a variety of techniques to improve this flow, pressing with the palms, fingers, elbows, knees and feet, and where appropriate dynamic rotations and stretches.

During the first treatment a complete medical history is taken, along with details of any medication being used. However as shiatsu works on the individual as a complete being, information on lifestyle, mental health and emotional well being is also recorded. The treatment takes place on a futon at floor level and the client remains clothed during the session. However, the client can also be treated sitting down. Loose comfortable clothing, such as a sweatshirt, tracksuit trousers and cotton socks are recommended. It is important that the client does not eat a large meal up to two hours before the session. After the session it is advisable to drink lots of water and to rest in order to receive maximum benefit from the treatment.
