Discovering True Health with Shiatsu at Kamalaya Koh Samui

Renowned Namikoshi Shiatsu therapist Yutaka Homma will be in residence at Kamalaya Koh Samui from 6-16 April, 2009.  

Namikoshi Shiatsu, a manual therapy developed in Japan through a synthesis of Eastern and Western medical concepts, uses mankind’s most ancient medical tools – the human hand and human hearts – to treat the patient using a holistic approach that stimulates the body’s own natural self-healing power to correct imbalances and effect a cure from within.

What distinguishes shiatsu from other manual therapies is that it employs no rubbing or kneading techniques, but instead uses the fingers and palms to apply sustained, vertical pressure to acu-points throughout the body, penetrating gently but deeply to flush out accumulated toxins, promote the flow of blood and lymph, and restore optimal functioning to the internal organs, autonomic nervous system, and endocrine system.

By limbering the muscles and freeing up the body’s myofascial matrix, shiatsu also facilitates increased range of motion and allows the skeletal system to rediscover its natural alignment.

Shiatsu is not just a matter of physical technique alone: it is a therapy based on a spirit of kindness and compassion. There is a saying in Japan that “The heart of shiatsu is like a mother’s love – press on the body and nurture the wellsprings of life.” When shiatsu is applied in this spirit, therapist and patient experience a direct, emotional bond that further enhances the effectiveness of the treatment.

Yutaka Homma will be offering 90-minute initial sessions and 60-minute follow-up sessions to Kamalaya guests and outside visitors. For bookings please contact Kalamalaya Wellness Reception by calling 077 429 800 or email info@kamalaya.com or visit www.kamalaya for further information.
