Shiatsu

Christian Huber  FwSS    

Zen Shiatsu / QiGong

Shiatsu is a physical therapy that supports and strengthens the body's natural ability to heal and balance itself. It works on the whole person - not just with the physical body, but also with psychological, emotional and  spiritual aspects of being. 

Shiatsu originated in Japan. Although shiatsu means "finger pressure" in Japanese, in practice a practitioner uses touch, comfortable pressure and manipulative techniques to adjust the body's physical structure and balance its energy flow. It is a deeply relaxing experience  and regular treatments can alleviate stress and illness and maintain health and well being.

Shiatsu is practiced on a floor cushion or futon with the person fully clothed therefore we recommend you wear comfortable clothing.

 

We start off with exploring the reasons for your visit and discuss the background to your condition and present health.

Cost: Shiatsu: £ 60.00 per 75 min session

I know from personal experience how powerful Shiatsu can be on the body and mind.

Many years ago, whilst going through a very difficult time of ill health, I tried many complementary therapies, with minor success.

Working with with Shiatsu I experienced remarkable results, after just a few Shiatsu treatments my physical and mental health improved hugely and I continued having regular treatments until I felt fully recovered in both body and mind.

 

This experience encouraged me to start to study Shiatsu so I could offer well-being to others.

During my studies I had the opportunity to work for a local HIV charity where I experienced working with people facing debilitating side effects of medication. My connection and work with the charity has continued into the present.

In 2014 I studied with Susumu Kimura-Sensei in Tokyo to enhance my Shiatsu practice and in 2015 started my Qi Gong teacher training and graduated from this wonderful course in 2017.

 

I continue to receive regular treatments to maintain my own health and sense of well-being and currently progress my teacher training with the Shiatsu College London.

Shin Tai works to align your structure and open your tissue system to achieve unrestricted exchange of energy and information in the body.

Shin Tai can also incorporate abdominal massage (optional) for clients who wish to include this.

Shin Tai means 'source body' and the aim is to restore the vitality you were born with.

We begin with a short conversation to discover your reasons and priorities in seeking bodywork.

Various forms of pressure and movement are used to encourage dispersal of stuck energy. Gentle holding is also used to promote flow and nourish any depleted areas.

Since Shin Tai works with the evolution of the individual, successive treatments will change and develop as you continue to take root in your own being.

 

Suggestions for exercises and foods to support the treatment can be given on request.

​The client stays fully clothed and I advise you to wear loose and comfortable clothes e.g. track suit bottoms or leggings, long sleeved t-shirt / hoodie and socks.

It is advisable to wait at least two hours after a meal before having a treatment. You may want to plan a restful few hours afterwards to allow the treatment to resonate through the rest of your day.

A Shin Tai treatment can last between 35 and 75 minutes. Cost £30-£50 per session.

 

I graduated from the British School of Shiatsu in 2017, where I have been practising Qigong since 2015. The Qigong training brings extra awareness and quality of touch to my Shin Tai treatments, allowing me to use the space in my own body to invite your body into the alignment it seeks.

 

The combination of Qigong Shin Tai and meditation has been transformative, enabling me to come to a place of sustained remission from insomnia and depression, to heal and build my relationships, and to make rewarding changes to my career and work.

 

I am committed to bodywork practice that is trans inclusive, and I welcome clients of all genders and orientations. I am also committed to making bodywork more accessible and enjoyable for larger bodied people.
