What is It Good For?
Shiatsu can be recommended safely for almost any condition. It is uniquely adapted to a wide range of ailments ranging from muscle spasms and strains to whiplash and accident related injuries. It is especially effective for headache pain, discomfort during pregnancy, aches and pains, insomnia and stress. Shiatsu is also wonderful as a relaxant after a hard day at work or in one of those moments when everything seems to be overwhelming.
Many doctors and chiropractors now recommend Shiatsu as an integral part of the recovery process.
How Much Shiatsu Treatment Might I Need?
Many people come to Shiatsu on a regular basis or as part of their general health maintenance regimen. Some clients choose once a week, some once a month. It depends on the individual and their particular needs.
A client coming in with a specific ailment will be evaluated accordingly and the amount and frequency of treatment will be dependent upon the type and severity of the condition or injury. The more serious the problem the more frequent the Shiatsu treatments. Results should be apparent within a short time and treatment can then be reduced as improvement continues. A maintenance schedule can be suggested based on the specific needs of the client.
Doctors’ referrals for No Fault and Worker’s Comp insurance are gladly accepted and all recommendations and requests from the referring physician are strictly adhered to.
Does it Hurt?
The answer to this question is NO. Shiatsu, when applied properly should feel stimulating, relieving, deep and therapeutic but not painful. Shiatsu does not have to hurt in order to effect positive change. Any discomfort experienced will be brief and will be clearly understood by the client to be part of the healing process.
