Anxiety and Shiatsu

By Shiatsu by Snezhana

Anxiety is what we feel when we are worried, tense or afraid – particularly about things that are about to happen, or which we think could happen in the future. Anxiety is a natural human response when we feel that we are under threat. It can be experienced through our thoughts, feelings and physical sensations, as described by “Mind”, one of the biggest mental health charities in UK.

After 2 years of uncertainty, excessive media language, related with fight, war, live threatening viruses, lost and grieving… no wonder that the number of people experiencing serious levels of anxiety is getting higher and higher.

How Shiatsu can help to transform the state of fight or flight into joy of living now, in the present moment?

The first step is the space which is created by the Shiatsu therapist. The Shiatsu session gives you time and space to meet yourself and reconnect with your body.

The power of the physical touch works on many levels. Physical touch increases levels of dopamine and serotonin, two neurotransmitters that help regulate your mood and relieve stress and anxiety. They have roles in sleep and memory, as well as metabolism and emotional well-being.

On an emotional level the experienced Shiatsu therapist offers support and acceptance, without judgment. There’s no need to protect, explain, defend who you are, why you are where you are in your current life situation.

The Shiatsu session supports your awareness to find the areas of imbalance in your life and understand your resources for transformation and new, fresh point of view on your current state.

And last but not least it brings understanding about your mental patterns. How do you use your focus? Is it necessary to worry about possible outcomes in the future, when you can transform your current situation with selfcare and self-kindness?

How can you shift your mindset from problem-solving to creativity and expansion?
