How will I benefit?

It’s especially useful if you suffer from irritating minor complaints like recurrent mild headaches, other minor aches and pains. Symptoms like these tend to be the body’s early warming signs. Some conditions respond promptly with one treatment, others improve with regular treatment. Shiatsu is an eminently valuable complimentary health care discipline.
The touch, specifically responding to your body’s needs, fosters deep mental and physical relaxation, the most natural way for the body to regenerate. This in turn fosters release of deep muscular tension and optimal internal function. People generally cite experiencing calmness, being more in touch with themselves, deepening insight into what aids their health. Such changes usually result in a heightened sense of health and wellbeing. Short term results can be quite astounding, often bringing welcome relief to chronic ailments.
