Shiatsu, is also known as Asian bodywork and acupressure. It is very different than massage as it is done through comfortable loose clothing. Organic powder or lotions are sometimes applied to face, abdomen, hands and feet.
Shiatsu restores the body’s own ability to renew itself, harmonizing the internal forces “chi” or “qi” that support healthy functioning organs, circulation and soft tissue.
What is Shiatsu? It translates as “finger pressure”. A practitioner may also apply pressure with his or her: palms, elbows, knees and feet. Very light or very deep pressure can be applied depending on your condition and needs. Shiatsu and other forms of Asian bodywork therapies also encompass many other techniques such as: kneading, grasping, tapping, cupping, rolling, soothing, rocking, rotating and stretching of the joints and limbs, and passive correcting.
What medical conditions can it benefit? It can help improve many conditions such as; chronic pain, fatigue, asthma, auto immune disorders, weakened immune system, digestive and elimination issues, IBS, degenerative diseases, sleep insomnia etc. Call and ask Theresa if your condition can be helped through shiatsu or other possible therapies.
What are the benefits of a Shiatsu treatment? It moves the lethargic or stagnant, subdues the excessive and nourishes the depleted. A skilled practitioner will do a TCM Assessment on you to look for subtle imbalances and based on the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine will create a treatment plan that will address the imbalances. The TCM Assessment process looks for very subtle imbalances that otherwise go undetected by modern medicine, especially if it has not shown up as a disease yet. Shiatsu helps remind the body to create balance and peace within.
Who can benefit from this form of massage or bodywork? Asian bodywork is for everyone who needs to address imbalance from acute to chronic medical conditions or for those of you who just need to undo the stress of everyday and need self care time for rejuvenating and maintaining great health….that covers just about everyone!

Recommended By: "Heaven on Earth Healing is exactly that. Whatever tradition you follow, whatever your image of Heaven, it is meant to be lived on earth; it can be lived on earth.
I have gone to Theresa for Shiatsu, Reiki, and I'm not even sure what else because she incorporates so many healing methods in any given session (whatever is called for in the moment). All of my healing sessions with Theresa have healed me in body, mind and spirit and through that healing, I have been able to go deeper in my religious practices.
I have also attended some of Theresa's Qigong and Tai Chi classes. I have experienced her to be, in any encounter, humble, professional, extremely knowledgeable as well as willing and able to meet me where I am at in my understanding of holistic methods.
I recommend you call her today and be closer to heaven on earth tomorrow." Amy Chabot originally posted on google reviews 2014
Cupping & Medical Qigong
Cupping is an Asian healing modality that utilizes suction to pull out toxins from the body, and dissolve scar tissue. The photo on the Left illustrates the combined therapies of Cupping and Qigong energy healing.
Moxi-bustion is an Asian healing modality that utilizes “heat” to gather qi, tonify and strengthen the qi level affecting an organ or network of organs. Often used in conditions where aversion to cold, accumulation of fluids, or palpated areas feel cool are presenting symptoms. The photo on the Left illustrates the use of Moxibustion, for a weakness in digestion and is used to strengthen the Stomach and Spleen meridians
