About Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a Japanese system of bodywork that has been used for centuries to help aid relief from many common health complaints. Using the same meridian system and theory as acupuncturists, instead of using needles the shiatsu practitioner uses hand, finger, thumb and sometimes foot pressure to help clear blocks and imbalances in the body's energetic system. Sometimes called "shiatsu massage", it is much more than that as its roots lie in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Indeed, shiatsu beautifully integrates visceral(organ) work with musculoskeletal and myofacsial work, the body's energetic through meridians and with emotional states. So, treatments can be very effective for body and muscular pain as well as with pathologies. Shiatsu can also be excellent aid for relaxation and a powerful antidote to the stresses and strains of modern day living as it can quieten an overstimulated nervous system state. .Click (www.shiatsu.org) for further information.



Shiatsu Shintai - Life Force Recovery!

Shintai is a style of shiatsu which aims to stimulate innate healing, life-force energy, through removal of compression and the re-creation of space and motion in the body. The theory of Shin Tai is that pain and dis-ease are caused by trapped life force and can be freed through contacting deeper tissue levels in the body, including fascia and connective tissues. This system of healing can include soft tissue structural corrections, vertebral alignment, short leg correction, hip realignment, cranial manipulation, visceral release and advanced energy work - all with the aim of creating body and mind alignment. Musculoskeletal problems, including back, neck and shoulder pain, can arise from stress and trauma held in the membranous system which may pull the body out of alignment. Such stress patterns may be released with Shintai, in a gentle but effective way with consequent relief from discomfort. Click (www.shintaiinternational.com) for further information.

Central Channel Release

One of the Shin Tai modules is Central Channel Release (CCR). This treatment regime concentrates on body's energetic midline, and the associated physicality of spine, dural tube, fluids and nervous system. CCR aims to address problems arising from distortions held in the membranous system (meninges) inside the spinal column and cranium. With very light contact points on the body, Central Channel work can identify Critical Points of Tension, thought to be key points holding the body in dysfunctional stress patterns which may result in referred pain. Working with Critical Points of Tension, it may be possible to release long and short term tensions, past emotional and physical trauma and trapped life force. Clients sometimes report increased willpower, more motivation to follow their life path, a sense of freedom in the mind and body, more energy - and sometimes also relief from acute and chronic aches and pains.

CranioSacral Therapy

A gentle non-invasive therapy where light touch, sometimes off the body, can paradoxically allow the therapist to feel a deeper engagement in the receiver's body. Craniosacral therapists undergo extensive training and develop finely-tuned palpation skills enabling the therapist to diagnose and alleviate deeper held misalignments at levels of fascia, membrane, bone and the fluid/watery level. Working from a place of inner stillness, it may also be possible to move beyond the physical and connect with "space" and the body's energetic. This can lead to a deeper sense of the peace that many of us search for in our lives. It is at this level that more profound healing of the spirit, mind and body can take place. Indeed, the gentle and non-invasive nature means that CST can be particularly successful in treating post traumatic conditions - emotional and physical. It can also be effective when used in conjunction with dental work such as orthodontics, for example to enable the cranium and cranio sacral system to accept changes in the mouth and to release the TMJ. It can be effective for babies and the elderly due to its non-invasive and gentle nature. Petra regularly treats babies following birth trauma including problems associated with difficult deliveries.
