Zen shiatsu massage


Japanese acupressure for strengthening and maintaining the body's qi circulation through the 12 primary meridians/energy pathways in the body.

The treatment begins with a thorough account of the client's current psychological, mental and emotional state. This condition gives the therapist an understanding of the client's yin/yang and qi condition in the body, thereby planning the optimal and most effective zen shiatsu treatment.

Zen shiatsu is for anyone of all ages who need an energetic and de-stressing treatment and especially for those who want comprehensive and holistic balancing of your qi.


Shiatsu comes from the words shi - finger and atsu - pressure. Finger pressure through the body's meridians and acupressure points are used to effectively locate blockages for a free flow of qi (energy) in the body. Thumb, finger and palm pressure, extent, push and other techniques are used during your Shiatsu treatment for a deep and extremely relaxing zen experience.

Zen Shiatsu was originally based on traditional Chinese medicine and was officially founded in Japan in the 12th century by Shizuto Masunaga (1925-1981). Shizotu discovered that in order to regain or maintain a state of tranquility and zen in the body, which may be caused by persistent mental or physical stress, it is crucial that our essential body functions - such as the circulation, digestion, abdominal function and breathing function optimally. The connection between 2 pressure points makes it possible to control the reactions in the sympathetic (stressed) nervous system to work deeper into the parasympathetic nervous system - thereby, our essential body functions.

Shiatsu is particularly effective in the following:

  • difficulty sleeping
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • overactive excessive thoughts
  • headache or migraine
  • hormonal disorders
  • indigestion
  • pain and tension in the body - eg. neck, shoulder or back

The treatment is done on the floor on a comfortable mattress. You receive the treatment fully dressed in comfortable loose clothing.
