Shiatsu Treatments

Nyima Shiatsu - practice located in Amsterdam Noord and IJburg

Shiatsu uses gentle, supportive touch to stimulate general health, specific healing and well-being.
Shiatsu is effective against:

  • Stress (chronic and acute)
  • Fatigue, burnout
  • Back pain
  • RSI, tennis elbow
  • Headache and migraine
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Joint disorders
  • Digestive difficulties
  • PMS and menstrual problems
  • Insomnia and sleep disorders
  • Muscle pain
  • Nervousness, restlessness

In shiatsu therapy, blockages in the meridian system are found and diagnosed.  They then are treated through massage by hands, thumbs, palms and elbows, by manipulations and stretches.  All stimulate your body’s ki – life energy – to flow freely again, bringing relief to specific problems and harmonizing the entire ki system.

Tensions will release and your circulation will improve. Further, your autonomic nervous system will be strengthened, helping your organs regain proper function.  The touch itself is comforting and reassuring; sessions are relaxing and invigorating at the same time.
Simple exercises will be offered to support the process of self-healing – a process that starts with the shiatsu treatment itself.

Reimbursements of health insurance.
