Do you suffer from headaches, digestive disorders, fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, low back, neck, & joint pain, PMS, hyperventilation or general stress? Treat yourself with a relieving massage by our shiatsu therapist Julie Bogaerts.
Shiatsu is a Japanese acupressure therapy, based on ideas in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). It works with energy. It's built on the idea that we have a subtle flow of electro magnetic energy flowing around our bodies.
In humans this energy, called chi in China or Ki in Japan, is highly influenced by our emotions. We feed our cells with our emotions through this flow of emotional energy. Chi tends to flow along major pathways, called meridians, before spreading out into smaller passages reaching every cell. Along these meridians are points, tsubos, where the flow of chi can be changed more easily.
A shiatsu practitioner will seek to improve the chi flow in a way that resolves physical and emotional problems and help a person feel better.
Julie graduated at the international Shiatsu School in Belgium, where she got a holistic training in Shiatsu, macrobiotic cooking, eastern diagnosis and Qigong.
