NOT the same as regular relaxation massage Relaxation massage is beneficial for relieving everyday stress, loosening general tension in the the muscle and giving an overall feeling of well-being. However, this type of massage is not intended to work on conditions like chronic neck pain, back pain, wrist pain from keyboard overuse, old injuries from sports or automobile accidents, limited range of motion in the neck, arms or legs, etc. These conditions are typically caused by tension that is buried deep within the soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia) which deep muscle Shiatsu therapy can tackle better and more effectively than relaxation massage. Who is someone that should try Shiatsu? Anyone who is dealing with a lot of stress and anxiety and looking to feel more relaxed. If you are suffering with acute or chronic pain and looking for some relief, Shiatsu can provide you with a decrease in your pain levels . Or maybe you are an athlete, looking to enhance your performance. Shiatsu can help by increasing your overall energy and power. Even if you don’t have any health concerns and are considered to be in good health, Shiatsu can boost your immune system and overall sense of well-being. Traditional Japanese Shiatsu will make an immediate impact and reduce your stress levels and increase your overall sense of well-being. With on-going treatments, Shiatsu can relieve pain, boost your energy levels and improve your immune system function. How dose it work? The skin is the largest organ in the body and has high concentrations of sense receptors. Other sense organs are the eyes, ears and tongue. A key function of these sense organs is to give our brain information about the safety or lack of safety within our body. The sense receptors in our skin relay information through the nervous system to the brain for processing. Once the information is processed by the brain, it sends back messages on how our body should react to the conditions. Shiatsu uses the sense receptors in the skin, muscles, bones and tendons to send messages to the brain. Essentially, it works by the balancing of the nervous and endocrine system through a variety of biochemical substances. These substances are produced by the body when gentle pressure is applied on specific Shiatsu points located throughout your entire body. It also works by stimulating the lymphatic system which is the system responsible for removing toxins and foreign substances from your body.
