Shiatsu is an ancient bodywork that grew its roots in traditional Chinese Medicine and was developed in Japan. Shiatsu enhances the selfhealing forces of the client. "Intentionlessness” is based on Buddhist philosophy. It consists in mirroring the structures and systems of the person, thereby enabling space for change to happen.
A Shiatsu session is made of a set of technics as pressure, giving weight, stretching and loosening the joints. These are applied in relation to what the client needs during a 1-hour session and as a whole-body treatment.
Masunaga-Shiatsu works with the idea that Qi (Energies) are flowing in 12 different Meridians (Energy-Lines). This holistic approach stimulates the flow of energy in different places in the body and can also resonate with the mind, spirit and soul of the person.
Shiatsu for me is a dance. It´s taking time to find new pathways. It´s finding connection to the core, and feeling integrity for our acts and thoughts. It´s arriving in an earth place, touching ground. It´s a dance with circumstances, it´s re-contextualizing, it´s having new ideas. It´s finding oneself again and there so, seeing the others.
My name is Clara Conza and since february 2018 I am a certified Shiatsu Practitioner. (Shiatsu Schule Kreuzberg bei Harald Gierl). I am also a dancer with a particular interest in somatic practices like BMC (Body-Mind-Centering), Klein Technique, Feldenkrais and Contact Improvisation.
Dance for me is a way to let energy go through the body. I begun Shiatsu to make my experience in dance useful in a one-on-one setting. My work with the meridians and the body itself is influenced by the information I collect, embody, discover and re-discover in my continous dance and somatic practice.
