What can we expect to gain from Shiatsu?

In the Orient, most of Europe, as well in certain parts of the U.S.A. (e.g. California, Baltimore, New York and Illinois) Shiatsu is considered to be one of the best health care methods in daily life. Shiatsu is capable of not only treating but also preventing disease. While conventional medicine is employed only when one is ill, Shiatsu is much like taking good care of one's car through caring and continuous maintenance. No Western medicine can guarantee that its use will not cause undesired side effects. There is not a single Rx or OTC drug which can guarantee no side effects. Even the so-called "preventive" inoculation or vaccination is frequently accompanied by side effects. If contraction of the particular disease we dread does not occur, the medicine/vaccine is not only useless, but often times harmful.

According to Masunaga, Chinese Herbal Medicine, acupuncture and some other modalities cure symptoms but do not increase physical strength. However, unlike Allopathy (Western Medicine) these modalities are able to start the treatment of people with early stages of the disease, without the side effects, and sometimes devastating reactions often associated with Allopathy.

Although not a part of a Shiatsu session, the concept and philosophy of Zen Shiatsu incorporates proper, balanced nutrition in daily life, as vital to keep us healthy. Proper diet is the root of good health. As you may recall, Qi enters our body through air and food. It is the food that nourishes life. Therefore one should expect a Shiatsu therapist also to be knowledgeable about maintaining proper diet.

Modern daily life is very stressful. Stress disturbs proper digestion, and thus proper nutrition, and a balanced Qi flow. Since a lot of our tension is passively collected on our skin, it is the skin which is first to be affected by stress, and eventually conducts its magnetic distortions into the internal organs. Shiatsu treatments can provide both a healthy and a stress-ridden body, with the means of and establishing better stress management capacity stronger and more resilient body mind system, better human relationships or in short, everything essential for a good health. In other words the aims and the achievements of good Shiatsu therapy are:

Improving relaxation as means to fight the effects of stress.
Enhancing the patien's blood and lymphatic flow, thus boosting the vitality and the immune system.
Alleviation of pains and stiffness.
Ability to confront both transient as well as chronic conditions.
Development of healing compassion through healing touch.
In Shiatsu, the therapist and the patient create a warm and understanding relationship through touch pressure. Emotional and physical discomfort can be immediately sensed through touch, and any discomfort and abnormal functioning of the mind and body is transmitted between the giver and the receiver of the treatment. Discomfort originating in Shiatsu session makes us aware of our own self-healing powers sometimes produced by external stimulation from pressure makes us aware of our own natural self-healing powers. Those lacking self-awareness benefit from Shiatsu through its skin stimulation, and sometimes discomfort, which tunes them into what is happening in their body. By making the patient aware, the therapist actually guides the patient back to normal life.
