If you are covered for acupuncture on your benefit plan…then our shiatsu therapy is covered too!
Shiatsu is a Japanese form of bodywork based on Traditional Chinese Medicine. During the treatment we use soothing continuous pressure with our palms, thumbs and elbows. Pressure is adjusted to the client’s comfort and can range from light and gentle to strong and vigorous.
We usually do a combination of shiatsu, acupuncture and sometimes one of the other cool Chinese Medicine modalities we offer (such as cupping). It’s advised to leave it up to us to let you know what treatment would be best suited for you.
Treatments are done in shorts or any loose pants that can easily roll above the knee. No lotions, scents or oils are used. Please bring your own shorts to all appointments.
