Shiatsu literally means “finger pressure”, or “accupuncture without needles”, or “accupressure”. It is performed with the client wearing light, comfortable clothing, on a futon-style mattress or low massage table. Sessions are 90 minutes.
Using thumbs, fingers and palms 330 pressure points are pressed over the whole body – top-to-toe, including each toe and finger tip- to stimulate flow of energy.
Shiatsu is a total body “tune up”. By restoring the body's equilibrium, regular sessions of Shiatsu may ease stress and stimulate the immune system.
It is extreme relaxation!!.
This style of shiatsu was developed by Tokujiro Namikoshi, founder of the Japan Shiatsu College

“Cherllisha has an amazing ability to find the exact place within a muscle that hurts, and coax the pain out to leave your muscles feeling warm and relaxed. She uses lots of towels and cushions to improve your comfort and listens to your feedback. I’ve had everyone I’ve talked to at Bodyworks recommend her”

"Regular Bowen Therapy and massages with BodyWisdom are important in managing my potentially disabling neurological condition. They assist in maintaining my overall physical and mental health. The gentleness of the Bowen Technique has resulted in improvement in balance, walking distances, restoring lost energy and making daily routine decisions. Massage has been helpful for muscle weakness. The skilled and knowledgeable consultations have allowed me to develop sensitivity to my physical and mental needs and to determine my own body work requirements. Cherllisha has taken care to address changes in my condition, to consult with me about my health requirements and the related outcomes.
I continue to be very satisfied with my ongoing treatments by Cherllisha, and the related outcomes. I unreservedly recommend her professional skills and empathetic approach." Helen McGuire
