Zenthai Shiatsu Canada
Izzy Shafey has done a lot with his body. A longtime athlete who's also a practitioner of yoga and mixed martial arts, he's intimately familiar with the abilities—and limitations—of the human anatomy, and the pain and imbalance rigorous movement can bring. For these reasons he was inspired to become a practitioner of zenthai shiatsu, and traveled all the way to Australia, one of its countries of origin, to learn the technique. It combines many holistic and kinesiologic principles, placing just as much emphasis on the power of simple touch as it does on the complex ways it can be administered.
Izzy draws from three modalities, including acupressure, which, like acupuncture, focuses on pressure points throughout the body but without the use of needles. He also incorporates traditional Thai massage, which uses stretching and even some yoga moves to release tension, and osteopathic massage, which focuses on joints, fascia, and connective tissue in order to restore range of motion.
