TAKA HASHIMOTO

SOUTHERN SHIATSU

I am an experienced Shiatsu Practitioner fully committed to a holistic approach to the wellbeing of my clients.
My approach is not to isolate one cause but to consider all aspects of the body and mind as a whole.
  As part of my Shiatsu Practice I incorporate Soseitai Muscle Release. Soseitai is a method of body balance used to correct posture by releasing and relaxing the muscles where tension is held.
  Shiatsu is suitable for all ages from the very young to the elderly, the client is fully clothed. In my practice I work on a massage table which can be adjusted to whatever height is required.

I studied shiatsu for three years and worked for a decade in Tokyo before moving to New Zealand. I have also studied oriental philosophy, including Buddhism and Taoism, and was introduced to shiatsu and acupuncture while seeking relief from anxiety. When I was a child I wasn’t so healthy. I was very sensitive and had a lot of stress and tension. I tried lots of different methods and techniques, but after shiatsu I felt like a new man.


Shiatsu is based on the acupuncture points of traditional Chinese medicine, but uses pressure-point massage, rather than needles. I also perform acupuncture and teach methods to help people improve their health.
The techniques are often effective at treating migraines, but are also used for treating a wide range of ailments without painkillers or medication.
