Benefits of Shiatsu Massage

There are times where a light touch massage is not enough.  Although comforting and relaxing, it is just not sufficient to let go of the tension held deep in your muscles.  Muscle tension can be caused by a physical occurrence such as overuse, or an accident or it can be the product of stress. Left untreated that muscle tension can lead to other ailments.

Massage therapy is one of the best-known alternative remedies for relieving muscle tension and you can trust Cara Cardon, Licensed Massage Therapist, to help you feel better, experience tension release and all together enjoy the benefits of a better energy flow.  Cara is well trained and experience with deep tissue massage, particularly Shiatsu massage techniques.

Shiatsu in Japanese means “finger pressure”.  Just as acupuncture, without the invasive needles, shiatsu is based on the holistic system of traditional Chinese medicine where illness is thought to be the result of imbalances in the natural flow of energy, or qi (pronounced “chee”) through the body. However, unlike acupuncture it is not only individual points that are being stimulated on the body, but rather the whole body. It works with the connecting “meridians” (also called channel network, paths through which the life energy, qi/chi flows) using finger and palm pressure, stretches, and other massage techniques. Unlike acupuncture and acupressure not only individual points are stimulated on the body, but the whole body is often stimulated, along the connecting “meridians”, using finger and palm pressure, stretches, and other massage techniques. In addition, shiatsu also includes a variety of mobilization movements.

Now is the time to take care of these energy blockages, release tension and recover freedom of movement and wellness.  Let your optimum life flow feed your body and enjoy its full potential again with Cara’s hands. Be restored!

We are one. Light, Love and Power.
