Shiatsu is a non-invasive physical therapy (massage & bodywork) that supports and strengthens the body’s natural ability to heal and balance itself. It works on the whole person – not just a physical body, but also a psychological, emotional and spiritual being.

The praxis of shiatsu originated in Japan from traditional Chinese medicine, with influences from more recent Western therapies. Although shiatsu means ‘finger pressure’ in Japanese, in practice a practitioner uses touch, comfortable pressure and manipulative techniques to adjust the body’s physical structure and balance its energy flow. It is a deeply relaxing experience and regular treatments reduce stress and illness and maintain health and well-being. It has both preventative and remedial effects.

Shiatsu is used to treat a wide range of internal, emotional and chronic conditions – such as headaches, digestive disorders, fatigue, insomnia, fibromyalgia, stress, anxiety, musculoskeletal pain, including low back, neck and joint pain – in order to invite full integration of the psycho-physical body. It reduces muscle stiffness, stimulates the skin, aids digestion and influence the nervous system. Fine balancing till reaching the optimum flow. The effect may be stimulating and invigorating or calming and sedative, depending on the goal of the session.

A shiatsu session lasts for about one hour and is given with the person fully clothed, wearing loose-fitting clothes. After an initial talk, the practitioner works on the whole body – gentle pressure is applied with thumbs, palms, knees or elbows; some gentle stretching of the limbs and joint rotations also take place.

There is a dressing room available, so you can change in more loose and light clothes, preferably one made of natural fibers, which you feel comfortable in.

Please, do not eat anything at least 2 hours prior to the shiatsu session.

Yoga is art & science of Life, an ultimate blend which supports our personal evolution in the most beautiful way – graceful integration of conscious breathing and movement on all levels of our being.

Mastering the movement of the mind which is reflected in our body language and directly connected with our breath patterns is one of the hardest, but sweetest practices one can do. The hardest part is in seeing our limitations, which ego usually has difficulties to accept. The sweetest part is letting go of those limitations and understanding the simple truth – they were never there in the first place. We inherited those limitations from believing that our surrounding is more real than we are, because we lack deep self-awareness at those moments of our unconsciousness. Yoga brings that to the surface of the conscious mind in form of revelations about ourselves, the world and the life in general. Our natural connection with the Source of all that is becomes stronger and stable with time, practice and dedication. This is how Yoga supports the integration of different layers of our Being, making it whole and holy again. All it takes to succeed in that affair is burning desire and unbending intention for it to be so.

From intuitive movements that have grown in Do-in form as we know it today, almost all physical, mental or spiritual self-development practices were born – such as yoga, meditation, martial arts, … The uniqueness of these exercises is manifested in a fact that everyone can practice them, as they are not physically demanding. They are combination of holistic & meditative exercises of meridian stretching (energy flow pathways), alchemical breathing & energy exercises, healing sounds, eyes & face exercises, self-massage & internal organs healing techniques, intentional focus on inner silence and self-regulation on a horizontal & vertical axis of our being.

Why would you want to schedule a private session? Well, to be able to experience pretty much anything in one on one arrangement (or one on two if attending in pair with someone)  is by itself very intimate and connecting experience. You are willing to be treated exclusively by someone whose passion is just that – in the act of free communication, we get to the most fundamental relationship with ourselves and other. Some questions finally find their long awaited answers. Our primal need to be understood and acknowledged is supported in an atmosphere of acceptance. This immediately has very powerful and positive impact on our physiology and biology. We become relaxed, and when true relaxation and trust take over, any healing and strengthening of our natural abilities skyrocket beautifully. Our sincere smile will tell. No pretending there. When the mind enters in peaceful communion with the body, magic becomes possible for us, again. That’s the moment when we shine, inside out.
