Top Ten Reasons to Get a Shiatsu

Number 7

Stagnant Qi leads to depression. What is Qi (Chi)?. When we speak of Qi we mean life force. The energy that animate us. That which is breath, air, movement in us. When that gets stuck or stagnant, we have lots of consequences to how we feel and our health in general. Depression is one of the forms that results from stagnation of our life force. In chinese medicine, we try to move blood and Qi to get that life force moving and balanced in the body. Stagnation can result from emotional or physical causes and can come from internal or external sources. Shiatsu, Tui Na and acupressure move blood and Qi. Why not try a session and get your mo jo working!!

Top 10 Reasons to get a Shiatsu

Number 8

Stagnant (not moving or flowing; motionless.) Qi (vital life force) pronounced "Chee" causes pain. If your Qi stagnates from blockage due to injury or lack of volume of flow like a kinked hose with not enough water pressure, pain results. Shiatsu and asian massage techniques (acupressure) can help move Qi and blood and eliminate pain. We can help boost Qi in the body along with good food and exercise to overcome many painful symptoms. Repetitive activities such as daily computer use, manual labor and holding the same physical position for hours can result in blockage, stagnation and pain. Try a relaxing shiatsu massage and you will be pleasantly surprised at how much it helps!

Top 10 Reasons to get a Shiatsu

Number 9
Helps your golf swing, or bike ride or yoga pose, or whatever sport you love. Getting regular bodywork helps all the jobs we do and fun we have. It keeps your muscles supple and flexible. Keep your Qi flowing smoothly and everything is better. I've helped athletes who run, golf, bike, play softball, hike and those who sit at a computer all day in a stagnation marathon. Come in and try acupressure and shiatsu and see if it works for you.

Number 10
Heat and Humidity can add damp to your body. This makes it hard for Qi to move causing Qi Stagnation! Qi stagnation and damp show up as feeling heavy, and slow. You might have headache, or frustration and impatience. Often pain, usually dull, achy type of pain in the legs and arms. Shiatsu helps move the Qi and unwind the stagnation. Free and easy Qi flow makes everything easier.

We have lots of other family fun activities in store, too.  Kids ages 12 and under can ride the same course as the racers in our kids fun race.  Everyone wins a medal and anything with wheels is welcome!  We’ll also have some BMX stunt riders showing their stuff and a group of lowrider bicycle enthusiasts will have their rides on display.  

Many of the local shops and restaurants are participating sponsors, including the South Chicago Avenue Business Alliance, Town Hall Tap, Wells Fargo, Bikes and Pieces, Pumphouse Creamery and Spruce Floral and Home.

If you’ve always wanted to try bike racing, try our “Citizens Race” - no experience necessary – and if you come early, you can attend our free racing clinic.
