Shiatsu is a form of bodywork that supports and strengthens the body’s natural ability to heal and balance itself. It originated in Japan from traditional oriental medicine, with influences from Western therapies. Shiatsu means ‘finger pressure’ in Japanese, but a practitioner may use their thumbs, palms, elbows or knees for pressing and also use stretches to adjust the body’s physical structure and balance its energy flow.
Shiatsu is deeply relaxing and gentle form of body therapy. It helps coping with everyday stresses and enhances general well-being. Shiatsu is beneficial to everyone, and regular treatments can help alleviate various stress related symptoms, such as headaches, digestive problems, sleeping trouble and back or other pain.
Most people report sleeping better after a treatment, and they feel lighter, looser and more relaxed.
The name Seishin reflects my approach to my practice of Shiatsu. Seishin in Japanese means spirit, mind, soul, heart or intention. It is formed of two Kanji characters: “Sei” meaning excellent, perfect or refined, and “Shin” which translates to soul or spirit.
The concept of Seishin is connected to martial arts and what is known as “Kongfu” in Chinese: a skill that can only be attained through hard work and true devotion. It is the idea of having a good attitude, and putting your all into something - so that others can see or feel your spirit in whatever you do.
