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!
