‘Shin So’ means deeper level or deeper layer. Shin So Shiatsu is Tetsuro Saito's natural progression of the pioneering work accomplished by Masunaga Sensei and is steeped in the tradition of Zen style or Meridian based Shiatsu.
Shin So Shiatsu focuses on the assessment and treatment of all the meridian systems, or energy pathways in the body.
Shin So diagnostic techniques make it possible to detect imbalances in these energy pathways. Meridian-based Shiatsu therapy derives its success from sensitivity to changes along the course of the meridian pathway.
Imbalances, if left unchecked, can create health problems. Imbalances are like weak places in the foundation of a house. If the foundation is weak, everything built on top is unstable and vulnerable.
By finding and correcting these imbalances in a massage session, we create a strong foundation in the body for optimal health. We work to balance the energy so that it flows freely throughout all areas of the body.
Sessions are 60 or 90 minutes in length. Clients enjoy a full body treatment in comfortable, stretchy clothes and leave feeling deeply relaxed and at peace. Shiatsu can be used to therapeutically and preventatively as part of a wellness-based lifestyle.
