SHIATSU THERAPY

Guiomar Campbell Dipl. Sh.

Literally translated, Shiatsu means “Finger pressure”.

It is a Japanese therapy based on sustained application of pressure primary with thumbs to selected acupressure points in the body.

This technique engages the body into deep relaxation, while improving joint flexibility and correction of posture.

It combines floor and table work.

This massage includes:

  • Shiatsu acupressure treatment on head, face, neck, shoulders and back

  • Thai yoga stretching

  • Zen meridian stretching for alignment and correction of spine

Shiatsu and acupuncture when combined with meridian stretching techniques will increase body awareness, calm and relax the mind and correct postural problems.
If you are experiencing repetitive strains to your tendons, try the Shiatsu Thai massage treatment.
If you often find that you are on your feet all day or have difficultly sleeping, I would recommend the foot massage or Aromatherapy massage.

REIKI HEALING SESSIONS


Murilo Elbas

Reiki is pronounced "Ray-Key" and it means universal. Rei in Japanese means spirit and Ki means life force energy. Reiki can therefore be called spiritually guided life force energy which is very important to us. It is the energy for our emotions, thoughts, and spiritual life. Reiki energy comes from God-force, and it is an extremely powerful healing energy. It is one of the few forms of healing that can be used to heal oneself. The Reiki Practitioner must be a clear vessel through which the healing energy flows. It is not a Reiki Practitioner who is healing, but merely acting as a channel. No special tools or equipments is needed and it is up to the healee to manifest harmony and balance in their life. They must want to be healed.

It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. A treatment feels like a wonderful radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well being.

Reiki should not compete with medical doctors and their treatments. Please consult your physician when the need arises.
