Integrative Shiatsu in Moon Twp

Chiropractic Moon Twp PA Integrative Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a form of Japanese Bodywork characterized by applying comfortable pressure using fingers and thumbs on acupuncture pressure points on the body. The Massage Therapist in Moon Twp may also use elbows, knuckles, or even knees during a session. The body’s pressure points are manipulated by tapping, squeezing, rubbing, and deeply probing which releases and restores energy flow around the body. Shiatsu works on the connective tissue that may be brittle or congested due to poor blood circulation and instantly activates and hydrates the tissue.

What is Integrative Shiatsu in Moon Twp?

Little is known about the electric healing properties of connective tissue called “piezoelectricity”, which translates to “pressure electricity”. This simply means that applying pressure on certain points in the body activates electrical signals in the connective tissue. (The word Shiatsu means “finger pressure”.) These electrical signals also spread to connective tissue throughout the body, promoting blood circulation and relaxation.

Fun facts: Piezoelectricity is the same energy that runs your quartz crystal watch. This is also why crystal healers can have an effect on your body’s electrical system through the frequency that different types of crystals emit when placed on the human body. Energy medicines and energy healing modalities (Such as Shiatsu, Reflexology, Acupuncture & Reiki) are no longer considered “woo woo” but are gaining more and more recognition as the scientific evidence for their effectiveness becomes more widely known.

In 2008, in a study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, muscle and joint pain, problems with body structure as well as tension, stress, and fatigue were the highest reported symptoms in 633 subjects. After receiving Shiatsu Therapy for 6 months, all of the subjects reported significant improvement in the symptoms.

In addition, subjects also reported:

  • 77 to 80 percent reported adopting a healthier lifestyle after incorporating Shiatsu in their daily lives.
  • 15 to 34 percent reported decreased dependence on medication and 16 to 22 percent reported decreased dependence on conventional medicine.

Over time, Shiatsu can pave the way for your body to start healing itself, allowing you to live a stress-free life, ward off illnesses and maintain overall good health.
