Shiatsu treats many common acute and chronic conditions as well as complex symptoms. This page forms and index of explanatory papers I have written.
The panel to the right lists shiatsu and Chinese medicine information relevant to several common conditions.
The shiatsu treatment begins with a diagnosis which seeks to determine the root cause of the health issue, this means that we seek to find the main underlying cause. What is upsetting the natural balance of the body. The treatment then aims at addressing it gently, effectively and without drugs.
It is worthwhile to point out that acute conditions such a pain in the arm or common cold are typically resolved in relatively short time frame however chronic conditions such as in those that have been present for a few years or have been progressively deteriorating over prolonged periods of time such as knee pain, arthritis and such will need longer times to improve and will do so in more subtle steps.
