Welcome im Shiatsu Shane, a specialist massage therapist based in Dinnington south Yorkshire. With easy access to Sheffield, Rotherham and Worksop.
Shiatsu Is a traditional Japanese massage sometimes referred to as “acupuncture without needles”
Personally I like to think of it as a cross between acupuncture and sports massage.
A Shiatsu can be a DEEP tissue massage going as one client said to me “as deep as my bones” yet gentle and soft.
Shiatsu Is traditionally Done on a futon on the floor however can also be done on a massage table or massage chair.
Shiatsu is normally done fully clothed, so is ideal if you do not feel comfortable in just a towel but still want the benefits of a massage.
Shiatsu works by combining ancient knowledge of traditional chinese medicine and the latest scientific knowledge of the human body.
Shiatsu Involves both working with energy (chi or ki) via acupoints and meridians and the physical manipulation of muscles and joints.
A Shiatsu Massage involves a lot of stretches so if you ever feel like your body needs to be “put on a rack for a good stretch” shiatsu will be perfect.
Shiatsu is incredibly relaxing and its common to drift off into another world or slip into a nice sleep.
And most importantly Shiatsu is adapted for you, for your needs wether you need a very gentle relaxing treatment or whether you need or more intense sports like massage.
