FAQ

WHY IS SHIATSU RECEIVED WITH THE CLOTHES ON?

Working mainly with the technique of acupressure on the energy meridians and with stretches and rotations, direct contact between skin and skin is not necessary, which is why no oils or creams are used.

CAN I GET SHIATSU WHEN I'M PREGNANT?

Yes, you can receive shiatsu after the third month of pregnancy.

Pregnancy is a time of huge change in a woman’s body, and massage during this time, with an experienced and knowledgeable practitioner, can be highly beneficial for both mother and baby. Shiatsu has been proven to benefit both the expectant mother as well as the development of the embryo.

Regular Shiatsu sessions can help the mother-to-be to adapt to the physical, mental, and emotional changes occurring in her body; relieving pain and stress by teaching her to relax, breathe and listen to the body.

Working with pressure points which are particularly good for pain relief can also be highly beneficial for pregnant women going into labor.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM THE FIRST SHIATSU TREATMENT?

I welcome you into the studio and offer you some tea or water, then we start with a short conversation about your general and current state of being, any recurrent or new injuries, taking into account any eventual trauma, fractures, and past surgeries. I ask you about the reason that leads you to receive shiatsu and your aspirations. I suggest you book a 90 minutes session for your first time so that we will have time to structure the best treatment and find out the best rhythm and pressure.

I also inquire about your preferences for touch, pressure, and your comfortable lying position. Please note when you book an appointment that the conversation before and after the treatment is included in the treatment's time ( for example a 60 or 90 minutes treatment includes the conversation at the beginning, and the resting and the conversation at the end.).

All the rest is about relaxation and letting go.
