What is Zenthai Shiatsu? Focused intention.
Blood , Ki and nerves form the foundations of our bodies internal pathways. Your local doctor may refer to arterial flow or nerve pathways whilst your alternative health practitioner may refer to it as ‘the river of life that ensures good health and vitality.’
When this is obstructed through emotional or physical trauma, postural imbalances or external invasion of pathogens, the natural healing mechanisms of our body is challenged and the ‘free flowing river’ often stagnates. The result is pain, low energy and a general loss of the feeling of well being. The body is needing support.
Zenthai shiatsu addresses the needs by drawing on the Traditional Energetic based systems of Zen Shiatsu, Traditional Thai Massage and the remediation techniques of Osteopathy. By the integration of the prime aspects of the modalities and the creation of a safe, awake and caring healing environment, Zenthai has evolved to be widely recognised as an effective structural and energetic form of therapy.
This is movement based therapy with a reputation of effective dealing with issues of the musculo-skeletal , digestive and nervous system.
Common conditions that are addressed include:
- lower back, neck and shoulder pain
- digestive complaints
- joint mobilisation
- energy depletion

“Life is energy. Without it nothing moves… nothing rests. Without energy, matter is inanimate. When we see energy we are seeing spirit. Each spirit is a manifestation of the Great Spirit, Tao.?? Therefore, we must not make negative judgements about anyone. Instead we must marvel at the creativity of God, or Tao.
As Oriental Medicine practitioners, our only desire is to facilitate the movement of energy, with ourselves and each person we encounter – to bring forth our own inner being, as well as the inner being of those around us. By acquiring this wonderful knowledge, we have it in our power to serve such a purpose: to move energy in the direction in which it already wants to go. What a great way to live.”
“Those who live passionately show us how to love. Those who love passionately show us how to live”
