Treatments are normally given on a comfortable mattress on the floor with the receiver ideally wearing clothing which fully covers their arms, legs and body and allows them freedom of movement. Seated treatments are also possible.
Techniques include some or all of the following. Gentle or firm pressure with the whole hand, thumbs, fingers, elbows, knees and supported movements of the limbs including rotations and stretches.
During a session
During a session it is important that you feel comfortable and feel that the techniques being used are right for you at the time. It is also important to communicate any uncertainties, discomfort or pain immediately so that the treatment can be adjusted.
Avoid eating a large meal before shiatsu or consuming intoxicating substances on the day of your treatment. After shiatsu aim to have the rest of the day free from demanding committments so that you can follow your body's needs. Call me if you have any concerns about any symptoms or feelings you have following the shiatsu.
Appointments last between 1 hr and 1 hr 15 mins with the bodywork typically lasting between 45 mins and 1 hr. Your first appointment may take a little longer.
