Shiatsu Biz Business Card 7x4 2016 2

Annemarie completed the Ohashiatsu® program in 1993 and has been a Shiatsu Practitioner ever since.  Shiatsu’s foundation in Chinese acupuncture theory and practice have made Shiatsu a fascinating path to ease pain, support wellness and well-being.  Every Shiatsu session presents a unique constellation emotionally, physically and energetically.  Annemarie works with the acupuncture meridians and points to sooth or energize as needed so that each person leaves their session feeling more ‘themselves’ and free of stresses or pain.

As a Shiatsu Practitioner, Annemarie had always sought to exclusively  explore  the healing potency of Shiatsu.  Then,  in 2014 Annemarie unexpectedly added another modality to her work—Access Bars®.  Access Bars® is a newer form of energy healing where 32 points on the head are touched to free us of patterns of being we absorb from others or from society at large. Through Bars we become aware that many of these patterns do not belong to us and we can erase them by running Bars.

What is Shiatsu?

Shiatsu is a Japanese style of bodywork that evolved from Chinese acupuncture. Acupuncture brings to the process of healing, the concept of balancing, smoothing and rejuvenating energies in our body.

Shiatsu uses touch, no needles, to contact and move these energies called ‘chi’.  In moving the chi, a Shiatsu therapist is able to help muscles relax, quiet the mind and allow the return of well-being.  My preferred touch is firm to gentle~~you choose so that we create a great session where you feel refreshed, renewed and rejuvenated.

What is ‘Access Bars®’?

A Bars session is very relaxing and may precipitate greater awarenesses in your life.  In a Bars session, thirty-two points on the head are touched gently.  As an intro, here is a short video:

One easy and quick way to decide if you would like to try a Shiatsu or Bars session is to simply ask, “Body, would you like to experience Bars?” If you hear a YES!, give me a call and lets create a way for you to experience the Bars.

Thank you

Thank you for taking time to explore my world of healing. I am so grateful to all of you who allow me to share what I love~~supporting others in being and expanding the unique gifts we all hold.
