Shiatsu experiences

Hi,

As a TCM-Shiatsu student I am interested in experiences with shiatsu.
There a a few flavours of shiatsu out there. What i'd like to know if you are willing to share what you liked or disliked. the massage itself, the explenation you got about your energy system etc..

with Love,
Eelco

Hi Eelco,

I don't know what "TCM" is but I have experienced classical Shiatsu and Zen Shiatsu. I loved the Zen Shiatsu because it was done by a man who was very intuitive and knew exactly where I needed treatment. I need maximum pressure and holding for a long time to release pain at trigger points. It always brings relief.

When I was pregnant, another fellow did shiatsu on me for morning sickness but I was really disappointed with it. He was very nervous about treating me (perhaps because I was pregnant) and his negative energy made me feel very apprehensive and uncomfortable so I didn't like his touch at all (yucky) and the treatment was ineffective. So I would say it's very important to get into a positive space mentally before you begin treatment because you are creating an intimate connection energetically between you and your client and they will absorb whatever you are giving out. (Of course I am ultra sensitive to people's energy but I think anybody would feel it one way or another.)

Good luck with it
Uma

I had a shiatsu treatment but not the massage, it was just pressing on certain parts of the body. I had shiatsu explained to me so when certain points on my body hurt (even though the practitioner was using the same pressure everywhere) he explained what that part related to so I was aware that I had physical and/or emotional problems in that part.

But I was quite tense during the session because I don't really like people touching me (I felt a bit forced into getting the treatment!). I'm sure if I had it again I would find a practitioner that I feel totally comfortable with.

I didn't really notice any significant changes but during the session I did feel energy flowing into problem parts of my body which was really interesting. I'm sure I would have noticed changes in my emotions and health if I was to have a few more treatments.

Good luck with your studies,

Sophie :)

Scandinavians invented the pillow yet many people complain about neurological problems because of its use
