How does Shiatsu work?

In the first place, Shiatsu is very relaxing, energising and refreshing.

Shiatsu works on a somatic and psychosomatic level.

Shiatsu has a positive effect ...

  • if you have problems because of social stress or stress at work
  • positively influences the complete autonomic nerve system and has a strong positive impact on breathing, digestion, sleep, the circulation system and menstruation.
  • has a positive effect on regeneration and rehabilitation after accidents and diseases.
  • has a positive effect on the spine, joints and muscles
  • is effectful if there are gynaecological problems, and is a means to accompany women during and after pregnancy.
  • works preventatively, as it balances corporal disturbances long before they manifest on a physical level as diseases.
  • Shiatsu improves the immune system and helps the body to intoxicate.

As already pointed out, Shiatsu is a holistic form of body work and therefore it has a deep impact not only on somatic but also on psychosomatic problems.

Psychological problems often manifest on a physical level and, vice versa, physical problems can cause a psychological imbalance.

Shiatsu combines the ancient medical knowledge about the connection and interdependence of body and mind, and is based on a focused and strategic body diagnosis. For this reason Shiatsu is also immensely effective as a complementary treatment to all common and traditional therapies, even psychotherapies and personal development.

It is important to point to the fact that Shiatsu is neither a replacement for a visit to the doctor nor a replacement to a coming medical or psychic treatment.
