Equipoise Shiatsu & Acupuncture

Shiatsu for People

A typical Shiatsu session will last about an hour, to include discussion time before and after the treatment.  The first session may be a little longer to allow time for a general medical background to be taken.  The patient normally lies on the floor supported on a shaped body cushion on a padded mat (futon) and remains fully clothed.  Treatment positions may be on your front (prone), back (supine) or on your side depending upon comfort and your treatment requirements.

A stool may be used if it is too difficult for people to get down on to the floor and back up again.  This will also be used for neck and shoulder treatments.

At the end of each session you will be offered advice to further benefit your treatment experience. This advice may be diet, exercise or lifestyle based.

Some people may feel a little light headed at the end of a treatment.  This is nothing to be worried about and will pass after a few minutes.  It may be worth allowing yourself  and extra 10 to 15 minutes extra time before driving off.

Rose is able to offer other treatments such as Chinese Cupping, Moxabustion or Acupuncture.  Any of these may be incorporated within your Shiatsu session.
