LEARN MORE about shiatsu

Shiatsu is older than acupuncture and came before needles were invented. Shiatsu actually means "finger pressure" in Japanese and finger pressure is a big part of the work, as well as applying pressure with the palms and elbows, and knees and feet to free up the energy flow and create as much balance as possible. Shiatsu is traditionally done on the floor without oil and the recipient is fully clothed.  Shiatsu is useful for anything going on in the body from something internally out of balance to something structural. The body is constantly striving to come into balance and this is a fluxes state. We’re never always in balance. Shiatsu helps to bring us back to a neutral sense of well-being. We look at the body holistically rather than targeting one thing and sending all of our focus there, we’re looking at the whole story; internally, externally, the cause of what’s going on. Working with each person individually, we create a greater sense of balance and awareness in the body and mind.

Shandoah is a body whisperer - that’s really the best way to put it. During the treatment, she enters into silent conversation with your body, and it responds by letting go. I’m so in love this this bodywork. The pain that I walk through her door with is always gone by the time that I walk out. She is so knowledgeable about how the body moves and functions. She is a true and wise healer. You will love her!
