Shiatsu is a Japanese ancient art of massage with its roots in Chinese medicine. The touch used in Shiatsu is a calming touch that listens to what the client needs. You lie fully clothed on a massage table or futon and a mindful touch is applied in your abdomen area starting to relax your nervous system in preparation to what follows. The treatment will be a different experience for each person. A Shiatsu session involves rotation of joints, stretches and pressure along the energetic channels. The practitioner applies pressure with hands, fingers, elbows, forearms and feet depending on each case.
Shiatsu is extremely calming therefore it can help with stress and sleeping problems amongst a variety of other complaints.
Tania's Shiatsu Massage is unique as it incorporates many years of practice with further trainings in other massage styles and Craniosacral Therapy. Her trainings in martial arts and meditation practices considerably strengths the quality of her treatments.
I have gained from Tania's Shiatsu treatments in two particular areas. Firstly, aches (from sports injuries) in my knees or spasms in my back are minimized or eliminated by her treatments, to a much greater extent than through using a physiotherapist. Secondly, the pressures and stresses of my work are considerable, and I find her treatments very helpful from a relaxation/well-being point of view.
I unhesitatingly recommend her - she is excellent!"
