Health Benefits

Shiatsu

Japanese for "finger pressure", Shiatsu is a type of alternative medicine consisting of finger and palm pressure, stretches, and other massage techniques for the purpose of correcting imbalances within the body, and for maintaining and promoting health. It is also a method contributing to the healing of specific illnesses.

  • Each pressure point of the feet corresponds to a specific body part
  • Unblocks the body's energy pathways
  • Encourages overall healing
  • Promotes relaxation
  • Alleviates Pain

Shiatsu is a way to help people relax and cope with issues such as stress, muscle pain, nausea, anxiety, and depression. There are two main Shiatsu schools: one incorporating elements of western anatomical and physiological theory, and the other based on Traditonal Chinese Medicine.

 

 

Reflexology

Reflexology is founded upon the existence of "reflex" areas on the feet that correspond to specific organs, glands, and other parts throughout the body. Applying pressure to these reflex areas promote health in the corresponding organs through energy pathways. Reflexology is a unique therapy that promotes well being in the same way as an exercise or diet program. The pressure exerted sends signals to balance.

  • Promotes relaxation
  • Improves circulation
  • Reduces pain
  • Soothes tired feet
  • Encourages overall healing

 

 

Magnetic Therapy

Modern studies of magnet therapy began in the 1970s, when researcher Albert Roy Davis, PhD, noticed that positive and negative magnetic charges had different effects on human biological systems. He concluded that magnets could kill cancer cells in animals and could also cure arthritis pain, glaucoma, infertility, and other conditions. Magnetic therapy has recently become a large industry in the United States and Euriope and has been used widely in Japan and China for many years.

Magnetic therapy involves the use of magnets of varying sizes and strengths that are placed on the body to relieve pain and treat disease. Magnetic fields, when applied to an injured area, may also increase blood flow and oxygen exchange to help enhance the body's natural healing process.

  • Increases blood flow and oxygen exchange
  • Relieves numbness, tingling, and pain
  • Helps prevent muscle spasms
  • Carries no harmful side effects
