Genevieve has been practicing Shiatsu for several years and comes from a background of remedial massage (7 years) and Reiki (20 years, 3rd level).
Shiatsu is a Japanese style of body therapy performed through clothing on a futon. Shiatsu works with the flow of vital lifeforce energy that can be known as Qi, Chi, Ki or Prana. A good starting framework is to understand that Shiatsu utilises the same meridian pathways and underlying system as Traditional Chinese Medicine. Techniques include a variety of compression, stretching and acupressure to release tension and restore systems to a balance.
(http://www.staa.org.au/about/what-is-shiatsu) It may also utilize cupping (flame or suction), gua sha or moxibustion.
Regular shiatsu can form an integral part of a healthy lifestyle as well as an opportunity to address specific complaints. Genevieve believes strongly in the capacity for shiatsu to not only relax the body and mind, reduce stress and anxiety but also to allow clients to form a deeper connection with their bodies. It is this access with the deeper self that helps clients to listen to the messages their bodies are communicating. Shiatsu is also traditionally used to prevent imbalances in the body, mind and spirit system before they manifest as sickness.
Shiatsu is recommended for:
Muscular tension and pain
Menstrual cycle issues and transitions
As a mind, body & soul integration and support, during or after major life events
Stress, anxiety and difficulty sleeping
Providing a space to access deep communion within oneself at a soul level
“With shiatsu I feel as though we are working together, I feel as though I’m in the body I’m meant to be in”
