Zen Shiatsu is a Japanese form of bodywork based on the five element theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is extremely gentle and results in a very, deep state of relaxation that enables the body’s own healing powers to circulate. I use thumbs, fingers, palms, elbows, feet and knees to apply pressure along meridian pathways while focusing on the body’s response to the treatment, helping to cultivating a greater sense of presence and consciousness towards the healing process. Zen Shiatsu will help your body to bring harmony to the meridian pathways and open the flow of energy.

After an overall treatment for your general health balance, 40 -70 tiny and painless needles are inserted on the face, which influences the skin to bring more collagen building nutrients to fill in fine lines, nourishing the skin from the inside out and improving elasticity.
