Sharon Eckman LicZS
Sharons background is in performing she is
an actress and singer and began studying shiatsu 3 years ago as a parallel career. Since
beginning her training at the Zen School,
she has, to quote a fellow shiatsu practitioner learned something about shiatsu and
a lot about me.
Performing is about communication and connection and this has
informed Sharons practice of shiatsu. She
believes that the connection between practitioner and receiver facilitates the body, mind
and spirits ability to self-heal, and studying at the Zen School has enhanced her
understanding of what connection means and how to use it intuitively.
Sharons particular interest is working with women who are HIV+
and she is hoping to facilitate shiatsu workshops in Namibia (Southern Africa) for carers
and health workers.
Zen Shiatsu is a Japanese therapy based on the ancient theories and wisdom of Traditional
Shiatsu literally means "finger push", often known as acupressure. A treatment
includes palm and finger pressure and gentle stretches which connect with the energy
flowing around the body. Each internal organ
(for example the lungs, liver and heart) has a meridian or energy line which runs through
the body. These meridians are affected by the everyday stresses
of life: overwork, a sedentary lifestyle, lack of rest and calm, emotional traumas and
illness all contribute to blockages and imbalances forming within the meridians. These
blockages may manifest in different ways such as tension, pain and fatigue. By tonifying
or releasing the energy within the meridians, shiatsu works to encourage the body to
rediscover its own balance.
Shiatsu has many benefits for health and wellbeing. It
is a wonderful way to take some time for yourself,
connect with your body, relax, clear any tension and
blockages from your system and generally boost your immunity. After a treatment, which
lasts about an hour, you may feel invigorated yet deeply relaxed.
