Definition of therapeutic Shiatsu and the massages

Therapeutic Shiatsu is one of the 8 alternative approaches indicated by the European Parliament (A4-0075/1997) as being “a nonconventional medicine worthy of interest” which enables you to preserve your capital health.

Since 1955, the technique of therapeutic Shiatsu is recognized like a medicine with whole share by the Japanese ministry of Health.

In the literal sense of the term, Shiatsu means “pressure of the fingers”. It is thus about a manual therapy (massage) of Japanese origin inspired by Chinese acupuncture. This releasing technique of care uses vertical pressures on the whole of the body realized using:

  • Massage mainly with the thumbs and sometimes other fingers
  • Massage with the palms of hand
  • Massage with the elbows

Shiastu therapeutic relieves various specific even organic functional disorders and preserves your health. A state of relieving and psychophysical wellbeing are established during and after each meeting of Shiastu.

Relaxation increases the production of endorphins. The improvement of blood circulation gets for the various parts of the body a better oxygen provisioning and nutritive substances.

How is held a therapeutic meeting of Shiatsu?

Formed at the international Institute of the new medicine of Bologna, under the direction of Dr. A. Monti, I successfully practise this manual therapy since long years. I analyze “the pulse energy”, according to principles of old Chinese acupuncture. Through a pressure on precise points of the bodies, I restored the correct radiant energy flux in the meridian lines, and then I rebalance your vital energy (Qi).

A meeting of Shiastu proceeds in the following way:

  • Duration: approximately 1 hour
  • Position of the customer: lengthened
  • Formal dress
