We are excited to announce that we are offering Shiatsu/Thai Massage again! Our Massage Therapist, Erin DeGraw, just recently completed continuing education courses in Shiatsu/Thai massage and wants to share all of the wonderful benefits with clients like you!
Japanese in origin, Shiatsu utilizes the same treatment method as acupuncture by addressing energy channels of the body known as meridians. With the client fully clothed, this is done through compressing and releasing tissue as well as full body stretches to rejuvenate and stimulate Chi, the vital force of energy in the body. Increasing the flow of Chi through the body can alleviate issues such as low back pain, shoulder pain, and neck tension. The holistic and relaxing flow of a session has also been known to lower cortisol levels, aiding in stress relief.
Similar to Shiatsu, Thai Massage is done with the client fully clothed to open energy lines referred to as “sen” using specific yogic postures. Thai Massage allows for more creative expression for the therapist allowing treatments to be specific and customized.
Both modalities can take place on the floor or table. Both incorporate deep, full body stretches for a holistic approach to treatment.
Try it out today! You won't regret it.
