Shiatsu massages use Japanese acupressure techniques to manipulate muscles and relieve a number of bothers, including headaches and tension. LaStone treatments target specific pain zones by placing warmed basalt stones on troubled areas to help knotted muscles relax. The therapy combines the use of thermotherapy, energy work stone placement, and the spinal layout.
Shiatsu and LaStone Therapies
Suzy Chumbo of Transense Healing Arts Holistic Centre employs two distinct therapy treatments to help clients reduce pain and discomfort. She uses her knuckles, thumbs, palms, knees, and elbows as instruments of relaxation, drawing from shiatsu techniques and Japanese-style acupressure to pinpoint and expunge stress. Alternatively, she uses heated basalt rocks formed from volcanic lava during LaStone therapy, loosening up knotted muscles.
Suzy's experience stems back to the Aveda Institute in Victoria, B.C., where she graduated from in 1998 in esthetics. Since 2000, she has added LaStone therapy to her repertoire, which allows her to stimulated the autonomic nervous system and increase oxygen in the body. Her subsequent interest in shiatsu led her to Shiatsu School of Canada, which enables her to continue her journey of educational growth through her daily practice.
