During treatment, the therapist will activate affected areas with deep, sustained pressure using fingers, hands, elbows or knees and mobilise them through rotation and stretching. This opens joints, loosens tensions and blockages, encouraging the body’s own detoxing mechanisms. This restores the body’s natural equilibrium, making possible a complete physical and psychological regeneration.
Through these touches and movements, patients will experience a keener sense of self, will learn to increase awareness of their own body and regain a sense of agency and control over their health and wellbeing.
Shiatsu is a holistic form of body therapy based on complex correlations explained in Eastern medicine, which enables the practitioner to positively influence and affect all somatic as well as psychosomatic issues. Our own behaviour patterns are reflected in our bodies, which adopt pain relieving and avoidance postures, build up tensions and present with various other issues. Positively influencing these somatic phenomena makes it easier to resolve the corresponding thought and behaviour patterns.
Alongside shiatsu’s effectiveness in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions, it is also the ideal tool to support common treatment forms like psychotherapy and personal development.
Shiatsu always treats the body as a whole, never just one problem in isolation. Understanding energy correlations in the body helps resolve an acute problem’s entire chain of origin and sustainably influence a variety of issues, which previously may have been resistant to any therapy.

The Urban Health Concept team has put together the perfect combination of therapy and exercises for me. With this programme, I was able to completely eliminate my back problems, and now I again feel strong and resilient.
For over a year, I was suffering from massive burnout. The therapists at Urban Health Concept were able to whip my body and mind back into shape through the right body therapy sessions, some psychotherapy and a personal, customised nutrition plan. Many thanks!
After a shiatsu session, I always feel really well adjusted and centred – everything is back where it should be.
I feel like a newly hatched baby after one of these treatments.
At the office, people thought I was having a secret affair because of how relaxed and glowing I always look after my shiatsu appointments.
