The Mindful Gardner


Acupressure & Shiatsu Therapy

The body, like the earth, is designed to heal itself. Asian Bodywork Therapies like acupressure and shiatsu nurture the dynamic relationship of body, mind and spirit so that we can be our best and enjoy greater resiliency.

Acupressure and Shiatsu are both forms of Asian Bodywork Therapy that utilize one of the most natural and intuitive forms of healing, touch. Acupressure, a form of shiatsu, provides a framework for balancing the body's energy (Qi) on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels.   Gentle yet firm pressure is applied to specific meridians and points using finger, hand, elbow, knee and barefoot techniques. I use Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Japanese Shiatsu principles as the foundation for clinical assessment and treatment planning.
