Dear HeartWish Clients and Students,

Outdoor Yoga Classes will be starting this Saturday, June 27th on the Spring Lake grounds (by the pool and tennis courts) in the Forgotten Mile. Free parking, plenty of shaded and full sun spots, and lots of room to socially distance yourself from your yogi neighbor. Please bring your own mat and props. Classes are $10 and available for online purchase through MindBody. Masks are not required. Weather permitting.

In our mission to create and sustain a healthy community, all other services, classes, and events will take a pause until things settle down. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

What is Shiatsu?

 

Shiatsu is a form of Japanese massage that is based on the meridian system developed by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The translation of “shi” is finger, and “atsu” is pressure – in other words, finger pressure massage. Shiatsu is often referred to as “acupuncture without the needles”. The shiatsu therapist uses palm, finger, and thumb pressure along meridian pathways (the channels connecting acupoints) to stimulate a healthy flow of qi, or life force energy, to the body/mind system.

Shiatsu is beneficial for alleviating muscle tension, joint pain, and acute injury, as well as digestive disturbances, insomnia, menstrual dysfunction, and common emotional disturbances such as anxiety and depression. Shiatsu enhances other forms of complementary medicine, such as acupuncture and naturopathy. Shiatsu assists with your regimen of herbs, vitamins, minerals and other supplements by promoting the assimilation and circulation of the nutrients, and helps to build your immunity.

A shiatsu treatment is practiced fully clothed and on a futon mat on the floor. Your whole body will receive treatment, even if you have a localized complaint. After a shiatsu treatment, you will feel very calm, relaxed and clear-headed, and notice a greater sense of ease and balance in your body/mind.
