5-Element Shiatsu

Do you like massage but prefer to remain fully clothed? Shiatsu bodywork might be a great alternative to massage and other forms of bodywork. Shiatsu bodywork techniques include finger pressure, palm compressions and stretching. The amount of pressure used varies from light, medium and deep. It may also incorporate an initial assessment of appearance, behavior, emotional state and other characteristics.

Traditionally 5-Element Shiatsu is performed on a floor mat, however it is also performed on a massage table. 5-Element Shiatsu restores balance and flow amongst the meridians to create overall health and wellness in the body. It affects all major systems of the body including; digestive, respiratory, endocrine (hormonal), integumentary (skin), urinary, reproductive, musculoskeletal, lymphatic and nervous systems as well as the sinuses.

5-Element Shiatsu is based on several theories in how Qi (also pronounced "Ki" or "Chi") flows throughout pathways called meridians in the body. In 5 Element Shiatsu there are 12 meridians that are mainly focused on. These include: Lung, Large Intestine, Kidney, Bladder, Liver, Gallbladder, Heart, Small Intestine, Triple Warmer, Pericardium, Spleen and Stomach. Four of the meridians belong to the element Fire. The remaining eight meridians form pairs and are included in the elements of Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood. The meridians and their 5 Elements may also be worked energetically through Energy Medicine.
