You may have a particular condition which you would like addressed, or else would like to use one of these therapies to aid as a preventative measure in order to maintain your health.
Acupuncture and Shiatsu aims to treat the whole person, not a particular symptom, therefore either can be effective for a range of conditions. If needles are an issue, Shiatsu can make a great alternative as it works on the same principles.
Massage may be able to help with musculoskeletal conditions, relieving anxiety and stress, helping relaxation, aiding sleep, promoting a sense of well-being.
