Shiatsu is a profoundly relaxing treatment that quickly promotes a natural sense of well-being.
If you are suffering from anxiety, depression or stress, Shiatsu can help to alleviate the symptoms, energizing the body and uplifting the mood, and facilitating a good night’s sleep.
It can also be an effective form of pain relief. According to a study published in the World Journal of Plastic Surgery, Shiatsu Massage helped to reduce the levels of pain experienced by burn patients. In this study, just 20 minutes of leg and hand massages was enough to cause a noticeable reduction in pain.
In other research, Shiatsu has also been shown to be a good remedy for lower back pain. In one study conducted in America, 65 out of 66 patients confirmed the effectiveness of the massage saying they would recommend it to others who are also experiencing lower back pain.
Shiatsu works so well at relieving muscle ache and reducing pain because it eliminates tension and spasms. The pressure applied to acupuncture points and the rubbing of muscles provides fast and drug-free pain relief.
It can be used as a treatment for migraines as it improves blood circulation. It can provide relief for women suffering menstrual cramps, as the improved energy flow and muscle function can result in stabilized hormone levels and earlier menstruation. Shiatsu also improves immune system function, reducing the chances of developing infections.
One final benefit of Shiatsu massage is how it helps the digestive system. By stimulating the intestines and colon, nutrients can be more easily absorbed. This can provide quick relief of constipation and flatulence, as well as better all-round health.
