Zenthai Shiatsu

Zenthai Shiatsu is a holistic bodywork modality that draws on the traditional eastern energetic based systems of Zen Shiatsu and Traditional Thai Massage as well as the remediation techniques of western Osteopathy.

By the integration of the prime aspects of these modalities and the creation of a safe, awake and caring healing environment, Zenthai has evolved to be widely recognised as an effective structural and energetic form of therapy.

On the surface we may see a creative form of bodywork integrating techniques and philosophy from Zen Shiatsu, Traditional Thai Massage and Osteopathy.

However, at its core is an invitation to freedom. Freedom not only of the structural and energetic bodies but also, if we are adventurous enough, also the mental and emotional.

Experiencing true freedom is not about ‘taking on’ anything new but more-so about letting go of the traps and blockages within our body/mind that prevent us from experiencing our true nature – joyful and free.

It becomes the focused intention for both giver and receiver using tools such as touch, breath, movement, awareness and honest self inquiry that is not confined to a yoga mat or futon but each moment of our daily life.
