Your guide to Ireland's alternative, complementary &  holistic therapies & therapists



Shiatsu is a physical therapy which uses a combination of pressure points, gentle manipulation and stretching to re-energise weak areas and reduce tension in the body. By applying sensitive, mindful, static touch with thumbs, fingers and palms, the Shiatsu giver affects the functioning of physical systems such as nervous, circulatory and respiratory, thus supporting the body’s innate self-healing abilities and promoting a sense of relaxation and well-being.

The principle behind shiatsu is related to the energy flow, known as Ki or Qi (pronounced chee), through your body. According to shiatsu therapists, disruption to this energy flow can cause illness and disease.

Shiatsu therapy can stimulate the circulation of your blood, help to release toxins and tension from your muscles, and stimulates your hormonal system. This is believed to help the body heal itself.

Shiatsu is given through clothes, so is practical for everyday workplace and family settings without the need for privacy and extra room heating. Traditionally practised on a futon at floor level, Shiatsu can also be received on a treatment table or chair.  Although a professional Shiatsu session will generally take place in a clinic room or client’s home
