 Natural Awakenings Lancaster-Berks

Shiatsu Acupressure Massage Offered at Sheehan Natural Health Improvement Center

Aug 01, 2015 12:14AM

Sheehan Natural Health Improvement Center, which provides chiropractic care, clinical nutrition and massage therapy in Lancaster, now offers Shiatsu acupressure massage. Shiatsu is a Japanese massage technique that uses gentle finger and hand pressure on the muscles for pain relief, stress reduction and to balance the body’s energy.

“The technique is called acupressure because it uses the same system of energy channels and points used in acupuncture and Chinese medicine, without invasive needles,” says Laura Sheehan, a Nutrition Response Testing practitioner who performs the Shiatsu sessions. “There are no oils or creams used in Shiatsu, and the procedure is done fully clothed, so you should wear something loose and comfortable that you can move around in.”

Each session, lasting about 50 to 60 minutes, is tailored to an individual’s needs. Sheehan will target specific areas to bring immediate relief for pain, and focus on balancing and energizing the body. In addition, she may make recommendations to help one’s body heal in between sessions, consisting of herbs, supplements, or dietary or lifestyle changes.

Cost: $65 per session; mention Natural Awakenings for a $10 discount. Location: 1301 E. King St., Lancaster. For more information, call 717-392-6606, email [email protected] or visit
