Massage encourages the body to enter a relaxing rest and recovery mode that lingers long after the massage is over. The pressure created by massage therapy moves blood through congested areas. This causes new blood to flow in, resulting improved body function. As we age, joints tend to tighten, making range of motion more restricted. Massage helps keep joints more fluid, making you more flexible and less prone to injury.

Zen Shiatsu is a form of bodywork where pressure is applied to all parts of the body along specific pathways (meridians). This technique stimulates the natural healing powers of the body. Stimulating imbalanced areas of the body restores a balanced flow. Zen Shiatsu relaxes the autonomic nervous system, which has the effect of calming nervous distress and increasing resistance to stress. By helping with blood and lymph circulation in the body, it helps to maintain and improve muscle tone and healthy internal organ functions. Shiatsu can also strengthen the immune system. Regular and consistent shiatsu treatments can become an important aspect of preventive health care as well as treatment for existing symptoms, injuries and chronic ailments.
