Zen Shiatsu and Amma massage on chair in San Juan de Alicante (Spain)
Zen Shiatsu is a unique form of body work that provides the satisfaction of touch along with a deep experience of energy balance. It is based on thousands of years of oriental philosophy and methods of healing. Shiatsu directly treats the meridian pathways within the body that channel the energy of Ki, the essence of our life. We experience this energy in the form of movement, communication, breathing, digestion, thoughts, feelings and spirituality. Any blockage or stagnation of energy within the meridians can cause physical, psychological and emotional diseases. Zen Shiatsu helps to balance energy at all levels, through a therapeutic and profoundly relaxing musculoskeletal treatment.
The session begins with an energy diagnosis of the Hara (abdomen) and an oral exchange in which the patient explains his/her need. Each session is adapted to the person and their status at the moment of the meeting.
Along with shiatsu, I combine other techniques such as the work of the fascia (connective tissue) that allows in a complementary way to relieve deeper pains.
Amma Massage on Chair
Amma or Anma (“to calm with touch” in Japanese) comes from a millenarian oriental tradition and is the ancestor of current Shiatsu. It is a form of acupressure following the energetic meridians stimulating the self-healing capacity of the body (homeostasis). The receiver seats on an ergonomic chair while receiving the massage.
