The Best Shiatsu Thai Massage Mat Available
I have found the best Shiatsu Thai Massage Mat on the market for you and/or your studio. This mat comes in two different sizes and unlike other companies, it ships for free.
Shiatsu is an old, traditional, Japanese healing method. If you did not know, Shiatsu means "finger pressure." Unlike the massages of the West, where tough friction is used, in Shiatsu, pressure and stretching is the key to relief. The practice of Shiatsu uses all parts of the hands, from the palms, fingers, thumbs and knuckles. The elbows, knees and the feet are also used to work on the bodys accupucture points which what is considered the bodys energy channels. Shiatsu massage is considered a preventive medicine and is safe and effective. This type of massage helps to balance the energy flow and strengthens our vital organs.
It is a belief in Shiatsu, that disease is the result of blocked off or an unbalance of energy. Shiatsu works in conjunction Chinese acupuncture because it shares many of the same things. It is considered that there are two energy forces for all, the Yin, or negative, and the Yang, or positive. The human body runs of a number of vital organs and are affected by the Yin and the Yang. There is a belief that in a healthy person, unbalanced energy allows disease to take over.
A practitioner has a patient lie on the mat, wearing comfortable, movable clothing. This person will use all parts of his hands, elbows, knees, and feet to work on balancing your body. Pressure is then applied to certain points to correct the imbalance. Shiatsu will affect the entire human being, there will be a physical and a spiritual change and this experience may induce a number of reactions while being manipulated during the massage. These reactions will let you know that you have moved on from your past and all of those negatives feelings.
Shiatsu massages are being used for a number of different ailments, such as respiratory problems, digestive problems, headaches and leg cramps and can help with many other problems you may be having. Shiatsu is getting more and more popular.
This traditional Shiatsu mat that we we have found is made with untreated cotton batting and natural cotton canvas. Its wide enough for both the practitioner and the patient to work and stretch out comfortably. 3" of cotton batting provides for ample cushioning yet light enough to be portable with its roll up ties and attached carrying strap. Perfect for Shiatsu, Thai massage, sleep overs and even road trips! It is available in 54" x 80" and is also available in a studio size of 66"x 80". See below to find these mats immediately.
