Shiatsu & Intuitive Massage


Shiatsu is  Japanese hands-on body work based on the idea of Ki flowing in invisible but palpable channels throughout the whole body.

Ki, Japanese for life force, animates all life and is the same in the body and in nature, it connects us humans to all aspects of life on this planet ( and possibly beyond… )

Ki flow in the body is influenced by emotions, posture, diet and exercise habits, how we balance rest and action, our connection to other people. Ki is like a river, flowing freely in its river bed, until it meets any kind of obstruction, leading to stuckness or depletion. This may show as pain, headaches, low energy, emotional states like anxiety or depression, digestive problems, infertility, menstrual problems and many others…

Gentle or more vigorous manipulation of Ki flow restores balance,  felt as absence of pain, a sense of calmness and ability to embrace life as it presents itself.

Shiatsu works through clothes, the client lying on a futon, and uses thumb and palm pressure, if appropriate elbow and foot pressure, as well as rotations and stretches. It is a full body treatment, focusing on problem areas, yet bringing relaxation to the whole bodymind and addressing the underlying causes of imbalances.

Shiatsu can be used alongside any other treatment, does not interfere with any kind of medication and is extremely beneficial as a preventative treatment.

Regular Shiatsu sessions even once a month help to avoid many especially stress related issues that often keep us out of work for a long time, if not addressed in their early stages.

Intuitive Massage

Intuitive Massage is a blend of different oil massage techniques, including Swedish, Deep tissue and Lomi Lomi that are intuitively worked into a deeply relaxing and pain relieving session of 60 or 90 minutes.

Whatever your reason for having a massage, the session will be tailored to your needs, focusing on problem areas, and addressing physical and emotional issues, if appropriate.

An Intuitive Massage brings you relief from pain, relaxation, calmness of mind and a sense of deep nourishment.

    Hi Uta,

    Could you let me know how much does a massage session cost? Thanks.

    • Hi Ramune,
      a session is usually 70 to 80 minutes, including a consultation at the beginning and time to rest and a chat about both our experiences. The cost at the Holistic Centre is 60 € .
      I hope that sounds good to you, kind regards
