Vancouver Ohashiatsu® and Shiatsu Therapy
Electra Health Floor's downtown Vancouver clinic now provides Oshashiatsu Therapy
Margarete Eller: Certified Ohashiatsu® Instructor and Registered Shiatsu Therapist.
Ohashiatsu has taken shiatsu, or acupressure to a different level. It’s a unique method of healing touch, and it’s also a method of meditation, a method of self-improvement. Initially developed to keep the Ohashiatsu therapist’s body healthy, the relaxed state of the therapist actually makes it more effective and more comfortable for the client. Ohashiatsu combines hands-on touch techniques, limb rotation, and stretches, in a seamless flow of movement. It is an energizing dance.

Traditional Shiatsu Massge
Originally developed in Japan, Shiatsu massage is a natural therapy that helps people relax and lead healthier lives. With Shiatsu, the entire treatment is done with a series of finger pressure movements. By applying hand and finger pressure systematically, therapists help clients relax and regain health without the use of drugs. The natural and calming focus of Shiatsu is particularly appealing for patients recovering from injuries, or those who find traditional medicine ineffective at addressing their stress levels.
Vancouver Shiatsu Massage Therapists
There are a variety of clinics, centres and other organizations offering Shiatsu massage. Generally speaking, patients should seek the services of a professionally trained Shiatsu Therapist. Be assured, Electra Health Floor's downtown Vancouver Shiatsu Therapists undergo substantial training and education: they are professionals.
An additional benefit to seeking the services of a Certified Shiatsu Therapist is that your health insurance plan may reimburse you for all, or part of the treatment fees. Since coverage plans vary, you’ll want to check with your insurance provider prior to making your first appointment.
Following an initial consultation, Certified Vancouver Shiatsu Therapists determine the best technique to address your concerns. Beyond the treatment itself, you can also ask your Shiatsu Therapist for healthy living advice and self-care ideas. Patient education will allow you to better understand your body and what you need to do to stay healthy.
Stress Reduction and Relaxation
Patients seek out Shiatsu massage for a variety of reasons. Typically, Shiatsu massage therapy can promote relaxation, ease muscle tension, address tendonitis, treat whiplash as well as other conditions. In some instances, Shiatsu can help patients recover faster from automotive or workplace injuries. In fact, many physicians in Vancouver refer patients to Shiatsu Therapists for treatment. Aside from the physical benefits, patients often find Shiatsu massage psychologically rewarding and uplifting. Indeed, you can benefit from Shiatsu even if you do not have a medical condition or injury.
The Shiatsu Massage Experience
If you seek Shiatsu through a registered Therapist, be prepared for an in-depth session. The therapist will generally begin by taking a medical history, seeking to understand your current condition. When this initial assessment has been completed, the Therapist will proceed to treat you. Patients lay down, and remain fully clothed during the session to insure their privacy is protected. Massage sessions typically last thirty to ninety minutes depending on the techniques being applied and the Therapist’s recommendation.
