The origin of the Shiatsu treatment
Shiatsu has its origins in far eastern medicine. It was developed in Japan on the basis of ancient Chinese knowledge. In order to establish this type of massage in Western medicine, the Japanese initially refrained from following the traditional approach. Initially, they did not align the Shiatsu massage with the classic meridians (channel) system. Instead, the basic form of Shiatsu massage was based on the entire body, like Western medicine. Only with the second generation of Shiatsu a return to traditional Japanese medicine occurred. In this way, a therapist with certified training carries out every therapy with the help of Shiatsu to this day. Soulhouse only works with experts who carry out this holistic approach of Shiatsu massage with a maximum positive effect on health.
What das Shiatsu massage mean?
Shiatsu initially means “finger pressure” or “acupressure”. This makes it clear how this type of massage is supposed to work. By exerting pressure on certain parts of the body, various ailments are supposed to be alleviated or completely removed. In order to achieve this effect, it is necessary for the therapist to undergo many years of training. Only then does he master the basics of this type of medicine well enough to apply it effectively. For this reason, Shiatsu practitioners are sought-after wellness specialists who usually have a very busy schedule. With our app you can still make an appointment for your Shiatsu massage at short notice. And not just in the studio (coming soon!), but even in the office or at home. You can easily arrange your personal appointment via the app or an online booking system and you will soon receive effective treatment for your complaints. Our experts will be with you within 2 hours.
How often should you have a Shiatsu treatment?
How often you need a Shiatsu massage to get rid of your symptoms is very individual. Only your local Shiatsu practitioner can answer this question exactly. Ultimately, it all depends on what health problems you have and how Shiatsu can improve them. Most experts recommend about 5 treatments, each about 1 to 2 weeks apart. This tour is most likely to have a positive effect on your health. At Soulhouse you save up to 30 percent on a Shiatsu massage and all other treatments compared to other studios. Therefore, you can hopefully afford to treat yourself to a professional Shiatsu treatment by one of our experts several times.
How does the Shiatsu massage work
Depending on your needs, the effects of a Shiatsu treatment can range from calming to stimulating. During the massage, the Shiatsu practitioner exerts pressure on certain points of the muscles. Sometimes he also massages parts of the skeleton. This stimulates the so-called autonomic nervous system. This has a balancing effect on the entire body. Your well-being increases with each treatment and existing complaints can subside or disappear completely. The therapist does not always use his fingers to apply pressure to the relevant points on the body. Depending on the area, the massage is also carried out using the entire hand, elbow, feet and knees. In this way, the Shiatsu practitioner is always able to exert targeted pressure in exactly the desired strength. Our certified specialists learn this approach in the course of their comprehensive training. This enables you to perform a Shiatsu massage professionally and without the risk of injury.

How does a Shiatsu massage work and what is its aim?
The aim of a Shiatsu treatment is usually to mobilize the entire musculoskeletal system and improve your athletic performance. Shiatsu stimulates the free flow of life energy, supports your immune system and can therefore also prevent diseases. During the treatment, the therapist uses different pressure techniques and strengths to restore the physical balance inside and out. A Shiatsu massage can, among other things, relax individual muscles in a targeted manner. But giving blocked joints more room to move is one of the goals that a Shiatsu practitioner pursues with his treatment. If the musculoskeletal system needs rest or stimulation, this can be achieved by using various Shiatsu techniques. A therapist gradually learns the subtleties of knowing the sensitivity of individual parts of the body to printing technology and improves it with increasing experience. Soulhouse always provides you with experienced specialists. Even before your massage, you will clarify in a detailed preliminary talk which complaints are disturbing you. On this basis, you will be able to decide which forms of Shiatsu massage you will use to achieve relief.
What are meridians and what do they have to do with Shiatsu?
At the latest when you receive your first Shiatsu treatment, you will come across the term meridians. According to the belief of traditional Far Eastern medicine, meridians are channels in the body. The life energy Qi flows in you. There are various meridians in the body that the therapist acts on during the massage. They run both on the body surface and inside the body. Thus, they represent the connection between inside and outside. By influencing the meridians, the Shiatsu practitioner seeks to restore the natural balance in the body. This gives the patient relief from pain and other ailments. There are so-called yin and yang meridians that form a cycle with one another. The intensive study of these channels is an important part of the training of a Shiatsu practitioner. Only thanks to your precise self-understanding will it be possible for the expert to respond to your individual complaints.
Can a Shiatsu massage mat replace a real Shiatsu treatment?
Many manufacturers of medical and wellness accessories now offer Shiatsu mats. These are massage mats that are supposed to reproduce the effect of a Shiatsu massage true to the original. Extensive tests of these mats have shown, however, that they can in no way replace a full massage by a Shiatsu practitioner. If you just want to relax a little from the day, such a mat is sometimes a good choice. However, if you have chronic or severe pain, massage mats of this type are not recommended. In such cases, they often have a counterproductive effect and make the symptoms worse in the long run. Instead, use the experience and expertise of the therapists from Soulhouse and let yourself be massaged properly.
Which Shiatsu massage mat is the best?
If you still don’t want to do without a mat, you should at least get a high-quality one. Note, however, that these devices are by no means a substitute for a real massage. They do give you some relaxation after a stressful day, but their effects cannot be compared to a professional Shiatsu massage performed with hands. Renowned test institutes have not yet carried out any representative tests on Shiatsu massage mats, so we do not want to make a clear purchase recommendation at this point. When buying, it is best to use the reviews of previous buyers and their satisfaction with certain products. This increases the chance that you will find a mat that meets your requirements.
Shiatsu massage: prices and duration
How much you have to pay for a Shiatsu treatment depends on who you have it performed by. Most practitioners call prices for a Shiatsu massage in the range between 60 and 90 euros. Of course, it must be taken into account that not every therapist has the same qualifications and experience. Our experts are all thoroughly checked and certified, so that you can expect a constant quality standard. If you book a Shiatsu treatment through Soulhouse, you can always be sure that you are benefiting from a fair price-performance ratio. On average, the massage and wellness services are up to 30 percent cheaper than in comparable studios. And the best part is that our practitioners carry out the Shiatsu massage at your home.
