Each individual’s experience with stress and anxiety is personal. Common areas of discomfort include neck, shoulders, lower back, digestive system and sleep challenges. Shiatsu focuses on the whole person, not the symptoms. This allows for greater relaxation mentally and physically. Connecting you to you. Allowing you to take a deeper inhalation and exhalation of breath. Releasing tension in mind and body. Creating a feeling similarly to meditation. While Shiatsu doesn’t take away the causes of the stress, it can help reduce the physical and emotional effects.
