Shiatsu


Zen Shiatsu

Shiatsu translates as finger pressure. It is a Japanese medical treatment grown from ancient, formal Chinese Medicine.  Shizuto Masunaga brought Zen Shiatsu, with his extended meridian system, to the west in the 1950's. The meridians are energy pathways, mapped thousands of years ago, for medicinal purposes. The Zen Shiatsu therapist facilitates the receiver's connection to their own source of vitality, and the body/ mind returns to a state of health and well being.

TESTIMONIALS

Your shiatsu treatments have made a world of difference in our sons recovery! You are truly amazing. You helped him diminish headaches, nausea, stomach issues, body aches, internal inflammation, alopecia and even anxiety when we had no answers to his overwhelming auto-immune issues. Not enough words to thank you for all your wonderful care. I highly recommend Carol Zen Shiatsu to anyone wanting to rebalance and regain their health and well being.  Wendy Fitz Hey

I had a great experience with Carol. Not knowing what to expect, I was impressed with how intuitive she was to tailoring the experience to my needs and her concern for my well being. The session was very comfortable and relaxing and I left feeling energized and experienced long lasting effects. I'm sold on shiatsu and Carol is fantastic! Highly Recommended!! Joan O.

Having arthritis and long term issues from an accident along with a lot of experience with different therapies, I know a true healer when I have the luck to find one. That is Carol. Magic hands, really unique and calming office, and she is a true professional. JM Kelley
