Ki or Vital energy

The philosophy behind shiatsu is based on vital energy called “Ki” in Japanese.

Ki animates us by flowing throughout the body along energetic lines called meridians. Ki comes in many different forms, like the air that we breathe and depend on for our life and the water and food that we take into our bodies, Ki is the very source of our vitality. It is the source within us that gives us inititative, which drives and inspires us to go forward in life.

Many external and internal factors can obstruct the flow of Ki. These blockages create pain, tightness, tensions, stagnation, change of temperature…various symptoms.

In shiatsu, the physical touch is used to check the distribution of Ki in the body and try to correct the imbalances. Touch is the essence of Shiatsu and is a wonderful means to communicate love and compassion by infusing nurturing, caring and intuitive qualities to our Touch. We all need to be touched in some way and shiatsu helps to fulfil this need.
