Description: Brian is a specialist in Shiatsu Therapy and is trained by one of the leading experts in the nation. He specializes in chronic pain (Muscular/Skeletal, Migraines and Digestive Disorders). People generally think of Shiatsu as a painful mode of therapy that conjures visions of people walking on people's backs. However, this generality is far from the truth. The method of shiatsu that Brian practices is called Quantum Shiatsu. Quantum Shiatsu is performed with the client fully clothed and utilizes finger pressure on key points of the body that are deemed "empty" of vital life force or "chi." To the client, these empty points on the body are felt as tender sensitive areas that may invoke emotions, buried life issues, or other sensations. Most often these empty areas are the source of the pain or key to reestablishing the smooth flow of energy.
Shiatsu Therapy should not be confused with the Basic Shiatsu that is received at most gyms and spas across the nation. Professional Shiatsu or Shiatsu Therapy is when an individual spends years on one system and focuses on mastering the details of why shiatsu works as a healing modality. Shiatsu Therapy is as potent as Acupuncture. This level of therapist can feel and observe what exactly an energetic modality like Reiki, Jin Shin do, Acupuncture does to the body's energy both on the body and off the body and why it is or is not effective. They have an awareness of "chi" or the universal life force and work with the energy as it changes in real time.
Brian's healing approach is to create a partnership and synergy in the healing process. Client's are discouraged from taking a sit back and "fix me" approach. Active healing through life adjustments is key to the success of any treatment as anything else will be a temporary patch to an unhealthy life momentum.
Brian will address the body on both a structural/physical level and from an energetic level. He will address physical symptoms by balancing structural imbalances, open up joints and muscle groups to promote healing. He will study the slow or blocked energetic flows along the meridian system and balance out excess and deficient energies along each channels. He will also ask the client to use their mind to help move the energy either through breath, relaxation or visualization. Brian will also analyze the higher energetics of the body to see how the universal energy is interchanging with the body. All of these subtle energies help create a solid, grounded, balanced life structure.
If you have had chronic pain for 2+ years you may be eligible for Brian's Research Program. Brian accepts a hand full of people to test new techniques of Shiatsu Therapy and requires 6 consecutive sessions at $30 per session (less than half the normal fee). Please contact him for more details.
