When treating clients, I am often drawn to Small Intestine 9, 10, 11 and 12 meridian points near the shoulders and shoulder blades (picture 1) and to the collar bones and the areas underneath (picture 2). Bone holds memory and is one of the main shock absorbers in the body. It can withstand a lot but sometimes, it can also feel like we are carrying a lot on our shoulders.
Many of our experiences are held deep in our bones and in the fascia (connective tissue), from inherited and ancestral / pre-natal Qi (energy & life force), Essence (constitution), and our memories and experiences (including grief, exhaustion, shock, trauma, fear) which can affect our relationship with ourselves and our sense of the here and now.
Bone touch and working with the fascia of the bone and gentle fascia release techniques are deeply supportive because they provide space for the body to release deeply held stress patterns and to heal.
When you support one area, you support the whole body. This is the beauty of Shiatsu Shin Tai. Treatments are deeply relaxing and also support and strengthen the body's natural ability to heal and balance itself by increasing available life force and bringing the body into better alignment (physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually). The body's natural resonance is also restored at the cellular, organ, joint and vibrational levels.
Shiatsu Shin Tai treatments include meridian work, fascial unwinding, cranio-sacral, Central Channel release and chakra techniques to clear meningeal stress in the body, and gentle and soft tissue structural adjustments to correct specific misalignments in the sacrum, hips and spine.
