Association of British Women in Malaysia Coffee Morning

Posted on Posted in Acupuncture, Shiatsu

In April we will be doing a talk for the Association of British Women’s of Malaysia on Japanese Healing Arts, namely Toyohari-stye acupuncture and Zen Shiatsu. This will be an informal talk, with plenty of time for questions, discussion and demonstrations. Lucky volunteers may get to have a mini-session, if they don’t mind everyone else watching!


Some people think that Shiatsu is a kind of massage. In Malaysia, what is advertised as Shiatsu can be quite painful. Authentic Zen Shiatsu can be better described as a traditional kind of bodywork that focuses on moving energy. It is gentle, light and profoundly relaxing. Shiatsu can be safely used to treat stress, anxiety and poor sleep as well as general aches and pains


Japanese acupuncture is very different to the stereotype of acupuncture. The techniques are very delicate and light and frequently the needle is merely touched to the point. This is totally painless and you won’t end up looking like a porcupine! For anxious adults and children this is a big advantage.


Japanese acupuncture also incorporates a wealth of other techniques, including moxibustion and cupping. It can be used to treat most health problems including fatigue, pain anywhere in the body, menstrual and fertility problems and migraine.
