In fact, Healing Shiatsu deeply integrates Mindfulness Meditation and Shiatsu, and emphasis certain qualities or principles in the Shiatsu practitioner to be successful as a therapist.

These qualities include: cultivating an awareness of the body in terms of posture, breathing and energy movements, training the body and taming the mind, and liberating the mind (ego-less approach).

Sonia’s idea was that following the above mentioned principles, the therapist can listen completely to the body of the receiver, let Ki Life Energy flow, and render a deep state of relaxation for the receiver in which physical and psychological healing can occur.
