What is well being ?

 

It is the absence of pain.

It is the absence of stress.

It is the absence of illness.

It is when all the enery of the body and spirit are in harmony,  in peace; when all the organs of the body function correctly.

Feeling poorly is the result of an imbalance of energy physically and/or psychologically.

How can you regain a feeling of well being ?

 

The answer is right at hand, at your fingertips.

With SHIATSU

SHIATSU, or finger pressure, is a massage therapy technic, devised in Japan, but inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine, as is acupuncture, and acupressure.

Shiatsu uses pressing and stretching methods to boost energy in the body and promote good health.

It is done by using gentle or firm pressure with thumbs and fingers, but also with palms, elbows, knees or even feet, on the meridians and acupuncture points, on the whole body.  Stretching is also used to contribute to flexibility.  There are no needles, or medication, or secondary effects.

SHIATSU is for everyone.  The patient, fully clothed, lies on a comfortable mat on the floor, or a massage table.  The treatment lasts for an hour.

SHIATSU is also effective for animals.
