Shiatsu treatment with Mark Pogson


Shiatsu ("finger-pressure" in Japanese) is an oriental healing art based on stimulating the flow of Ki or Chi (life energy) through the body. It helps to maintain good health, promotes relaxation, and can help many stress-related problems. 

What to expect

Shiatsu is a gentle but powerful therapy which combines dynamic stretches, rotations, massage and acupressure to smooth the flow of Ki/Chi and move the body/mind/spirit towards a more harmonious state. It shares its roots with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and uses a range of meridians (energy channels) and points (Tsubos).

Sessions last around an hour - usually laying on a futon on the floor, although seated treatments are also effective.  Some aspects of the treatment may cause a little short-lived discomfort or highlight tender areas (often where energy is blocked) but this leads to an overall sense of wholeness, and you'll leave feeling both relaxed and energised, with a sensation of having awoken from a restful sleep.
