Shiatsu has the same range of benefits as Acupuncture and Massage and is achieved entirely through touch. Techniques include abdominal assessment, joint rotations, stretches, rocking, and finger and palm pressure. It is done fully clothed on a comfortable mat on the floor or on a massage table.​​ ​A Shiatsu session brings healing to both the practitioner and the client.

“After just one session I noticed a difference in my knee pain, which I’d been dealing with for four years. I had severe nerve damage in my knee from an accident so even light touch was very painful. I’d tried topical pain killers, physical therapy, multiple knee braces, all with no improvement. Shiatsu was the only thing that helped, because Shiatsu works WITH the body and helps the body use its own healing system effectively. Please, if you live with chronic pain, don’t keep seeking help from people who do not believe you can heal. — Paula Marie, Jan 8, 2017

“The Shiatsu School of Vermont is an excellent resource to the community and I feel privileged that I got to experience it. I would say to anyone considering wonderful bodywork or a career that it is a class act for sure.” — Renee L Vondle, June 24, 2017.

“That was the best neck and shoulder work ever! I feel there is a total connection from my head into my torso and into my pelvis. My neck is the most relaxed it’s been since I can remember. I have a range of motion that I haven’t felt for years. The rolling arm technique released my tennis elbow. Thank you!” — Michael Jaro, June 26, 2017

“The students seemed to employ a number of methods that were tailored to my areas and types of pain. The whole experience felt unified and natural. The rotation and stretching of my hips really felt like it took pressure off my lower back and allowed me movement that I normally cannot do myself. Thank you!” — AW, June 25, 2017.​

“My body is affected by 17 years of the various co-infections of Lyme disease, including osteoarthritis, chronic fatigue and chronic pain and fibromyalgia. No matter how good my diet and support supplementation is, I have to sadly rely on tylenol and advil combined at times to have any pain relief. After two one hour sessions with Xavier at the Shiatsu School in Vt I feel very different, optimistic even! My chronic fatigue seems to have lifted entirely and my pain levels are decreased so much I can go 24-48 hours without Nsaids. While continuing to explore all supports for my immune system I am excited to have found Shiatsu.” — Gretchen Vogel, September 7, 2017
