Shiatsu in Dingwall near Inverness

Shiatsu is a deep, powerful and relaxing form of massage that is given fully clothed. It originated in Japan where the blind gave treatments because of their sensitivity of touch. Based on acupuncture points and lines - fingers, thumbs, palms and elbows are used - but no needles! Tight areas can relax, weak areas are strengthened and the internal organs are benefited.


A treatment, lasting just over an hour, takes place on a comfortable futon on the floor supported by cushions. Alternatively, if this is difficult, shiatsu can be given on a massage table, or in a chair or wheelchair.


Advice regarding diet, nutrition and exercise may be given as this can enhance the effectiveness of the treatment.
