What can Zen Shiatsu Treat
Shiatsu works by treating the whole body system in order to influence the prevailing disharmony that caused the unwanted symptom. As such, it is truly holistic, treating cause and symptom at the same time. This means that shiatsu is effective in a very wide range of problems and conditions.
It is also used by many people as a maintenance strategy with regular treatments helping to correct problems before they arise.
The most common conditions treated with shiatsu tend to be physical aches and pains such as frozen shoulder, tennis elbow and lower back ache , although these can often turn out to be symptomatic of other, deeper disharmonies.
Some common ailments Zen Shiatsu treats include:
Back , shoulder and neck pain
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Crohns or IBD
In addition, Shiatsu practitioners are increasingly working with physicians and hospitals to speed recovery time for their patients.
Even if it is only used as a stress relief tool, Shiatsu can be extremely effective.
