Shiatsu is an ancient Japanese style of Massage therapy that works with and enhances the body's natural balance and ability to heal.
Shiatsu is 'Whole-istic' in approach and tailored to your needs to balance out mind, body and spirit; reducing tension and removing blockages within the body's energy pathways to allow healing energy to flow naturally around the body.

In a Shiatsu treatment, you remain fully clothed and no oil is used. It is usually conducted on a futon or mat on the floor but has been adapted for table at YOU Massage.
Elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine are incorporated into this style of Shiatsu (Zen Shiatsu) which means there is a focus on energy channels (meridians) to correct imbalances, as in Acupressure. One hand is used as a 'listening' hand which usually remains still to create support while the other is used to apply pressure.
Pressure is applied to the meridians and points using thumbs, fingers or palms. Treatment also usually involves stretches and joint rotations to help relieve tension, stiffness or pain. Before a treatment begins a 'hara diagnosis' takes place where your stomach is palpated (through clothing) to locate energy imbalances in the body. Please ensure you wear loose clothing when you come for your Shiatsu treatment.
Please note, a consultation is required on your first visit for any treatment; necessary to get a good understanding of you and tailor the treatment around your needs.
Please allow an extra 15 minutes and £7.50 during your first visit.

The Shiatsu that we offer in our Southampton Massage Studio, is a completely different style to the traditional western oil massage. In a Shiatsu Massage, you remain fully clothed through the treatment and no oil is used. Shiatsu Massage uses pressure points and yoga like stretching to release tension and relax muscles. Please ensure you wear loose clothing, contact us if you're not sure what's best.
