How did I get into Shiatsu?

In my many years of work as a physiotherapist, I have always missed the holistic view of physical symptoms. I am interested beyond the purely conventional medical point of view, what is really behind symptoms, why a problem arose.

That's why I was looking for a form of therapy that would allow me to work more comprehensively and more satisfactorily for me. Shiatsu is a good way to do this.

What is Shiatsu and how is it treated?

Shiatsu is an old Japanese form of therapy with the background of traditional Chinese medicine. The client lies on a padded mat in comfortable clothes. The therapist works with various techniques such as thumb pressure, meridian work, joint mobilization, tissue techniques and some more, which is why every treatment is different. It takes sensitivity and mindfulness to use the appropriate application options.

A session includes a conversation and ideas and suggestions on how the client can support the effects of the treatment at home.

 

What is the goal of Shiatsu?

The therapist works to get the energy flowing again where it is stagnant and can lead or has already led to illness. He harmonises them as far as the client allows, which brings more freedom and well-being to the body. At the client's pace and according to his possibilities.

Who is Shiatsu suitable for?

Shiatsu is aimed at people who want to look at health problems more holistically or who want to tackle or support changes in their lives. It helps with joint and muscle pain, fatigue, sleep disorders, headaches, stress, burnout and much more.

But it is also suitable for all those people who want to do something good for themselves and just relax. The beautiful atmosphere of the house and the treatment room under the roof contribute to the success of this.

I am looking forward to your visit!

If you are unable to keep an appointment, please let me know 24 hours in advance so that I do not have to charge you for the treatment.

I am EMR approved, which means that supplementary insurance should cover part of the treatment costs. However, since the health insurance companies are also under pressure to save, I recommend that you clarify this in advance.
