Shiatsu practice is based on the oriental medical principle that mind and body is regulated by energy flowing along a network of meridians 오피스타. According to this principle, the energy responsible for the functioning of mind and body flows through these meridians and a person becomes unwell once this natural flow of energy is disturbed. If this natural flow is restored by shiatsu therapy, then the natural healing power of the body returns the person to good health. Climate, toxins in the environment or the body, emotional factors, lifestyle, stress or physical trauma may be the cause of these disruptions.
Trigger points are areas of hyperirritability within soft tissue that develop when a muscle is injured or overworked. A tight or painful muscle can be the result of an active trigger point. Trigger points caused by trauma create changes in the tissue’s chemical balance, irritating the sensory systems. Local tenderness and referred pain, tingling, numbness, burning or itching are characteristic symptoms of a trigger point.
A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. Trigger point therapy has been developed to specifically alleviate the cause of the pain. The exact location and intensity of the discomfort is accurately identified through palpation and feedback from the client. As toxins are eliminated and energizing endorphins released by trigger point therapy, after only one treatment, pain may be substantially diminished.
