Shiatsu… relaxes - touches - moves


Shiatsu, literally meaning "finger-pressure", is a japanese whole-body therapy. Shiatsu is a holistic treatment which activates the self-healing powers through gentle touch on the entire body.

Shiatsu is suitable for people of all ages, and also during pregnancy either to promote good health, or as a complementary therapy in case of discomfort or ailment.

Shiatsu helps you…

  • to sleep better
  • to digest better
  • to relieve pain
  • to reduce stress
  • to perceive the body better
  • to improve the immune system
  • to promote well-being
  • to reduce pregnancy-related and menopausal symptoms

Shiatsu treatment

A Shiatsu session lasts about 60 minutes and is done on the clothed body while either sitting or lying on a comfortable futon. Gentle touch with the thumbs, palms of the hands, elbows, and knees is used to help remove blockages in the body, while stretches and rotations promote the flow of energy in the joints.

You can find more information about Shiatsu at Shiatsuverband (German/French) or Shiatsusociety (English) .

Moxibustion is a method within Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in which acupuncture points or painful body parts are heated with mugwort herbs. Moxibustion helps to remove cold and humidity from the body. According to Western thought, treatment with warmth helps to improve the blood circulation, stimulates organ function and strengthens the immune defense.

In ancient China, traditionally the doctor was paid as long as his "patient" was healthy. I am fascinated by the holistic view of the human being and health. I’m impressed by the uniqueness of each human and his or her possibilities to follow life's path. As a Shiatsu therapist I accompany and support each person individually and take each person as he or she is. My treatments are characterized by attentiveness, mindfulness and openness.
