Zen Shiatsu - Traditional Masunaga Method - Keiraku Shiatsu - Iokai Shiatsu




JULY 2024




The Shiatsu treatment, Iokai Masunaga Method, is a bioenergetic treatment aimed at harmonizing the three vital levels of the individual: physical, psychic and energetic, through the sedation or tonification of the Energetic Meridians of Traditional Chinese Medicine and their related Movements according to the research of the japanese Shiatsu Master Shizuto Masunaga

Shiatsu is an evolutionary and bioenergetic discipline: it's not a massage, it's not an alternative therapy, it's not an unconventional medicine but it is a process of deep energetic communication between the practitioner (torì) and the receiver (ukè) which, thanks to techniques based on an ancient knowledge, constantly updated, allows someone to awaken and rebalance the energy qualities of the individual, preventing and solving imbalances and disharmonies that can lead to pathologies or their aggravation, through the stimulation of the self-healing properties inherent in every Living Being.
