Shiatsu for arthritis pain
I have arthritis in my right hip and maintaining flexibility and mobility were becoming very difficult, especially as I'm a university lecturer and on my feet most days either commuting to classes or giving lectures.
Through my yoga instructor, I won a free zen shiatsu massage. Although this was different from my usual massages, I thought I'd give it a try and I am so glad that I did. I found that zen shiatsu is more than massage but a way of relaxing the body and mind while improving flexibility.
My therapist is very good about getting to know his patients so he can treat the whole person and help reduce stress, as well as improve physical and mental well-being. I have been having these sessions for several months and definitely see the benefits.
