LightSpace is thrilled to announce that after 1.5 years of hard work and dedication, Beth Milligan is now a fully certified Shiatsu massage therapist! She is now offering sessions at LightSpace in our newly finished treatment space – which we call the Sage Room – bringing you yet another way that we can help you find balance and calm at LightSpace 🙂
So what exactly is Shiatsu therapy? So glad you asked!
Shiatsu is a form of massage that primarily focuses on balancing the body’s energy, or “qi.” When part of the body has an imbalance, other areas of the body have to pick up the slack. This imbalance can affect movement, communication, respiration, digestion, thoughts, feelings and spirituality (and make you feel “not quite right”).
Shiatsu uses touch along the body’s energy channels (same channels as acupuncture, but without the needles) to address these imbalances, helping you return to homeostasis or balance. It also helps to create space throughout the body by rotating and stretching limbs and joints. At LightSpace, Shiatsu is performed fully clothed using a futon on the floor. The depth and intensity of the technique will vary based on your needs and preferences.
Shiatsu is uniquely satisfying in its flow. Clients report that they feel nurtured, “put together” and energized after a session. Because of the stretching involved, it is also extremely effective in treating sports injuries and other physical pathologies.
