Barefoot Shaitsu

Barefoot shiatsu utilizes the acupuncture

 meridian lines and tsubo points to facilitate healing through the balance of elemental forces in the body.

gravity allows the muscles of the practitioner to be free of work,  invoking a deep feeling of stillness within the recipient

 working in pairs of yin and yang, meridian lines move through the body  connecting us to the elements: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water when in harmony these elements support nourish, ebb, and flow with each other

each element represent a certain vector; an angle to approach the connection, and a physical groove where, like a river through the mountains, energy flows.
