Shiatsu and other Disciplines
Shiatsu usually works very well along side the diagnosis of your doctor, physiotherapist, psychiatrist, counsellor etc. If you have a serious condition I will always recommend that you consult your doctor or natural healer if you have not done so already.
Guidelines for Treatments;
Wear loose, warm, comfortable clothing, preferably cotton e.g. sweatshirt, tracksuit bottoms, trousers and cotton socks. Many clients prefer to bring clothes to change into, especially if they come during or after work.
Do not eat heavily in the two hours prior to treatment.
Do not drink alcohol before or immediately after the treatment.
If possible avoid strenuous or stressful activities after your treatment for One to Two hrs, relaxation will enhance the benefits of Shiatsu.
Initial treatment sessions are a minimum of 90 minutes long.
Treatments thereafter are 50-to-60 minutes.
