Shiatsu Bodywork: 

"Shiatsu is a Japanese form of bodywork that combines the effectiveness of acupuncture with the feel good of massage,but with no use of needles. The goal of shiatsu is to restore the healthy flow of energy throughout the body.  Performed on a comfortable futon mat on the floor, the practitioner uses fingers, hands, elbows, and knees to therapeutically massage and stretch the receiver.  The practitioner palpitates and rebalances the energy pathways in the body, called meridians, leaving the receiver feeling relaxed, renewed, and refreshed.

For Shiatsu appointments please arrive 10 minutes before the scheduled appointment and wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely and stretch.
