Satoru incorporates a broad range of massage techniques into his treatments, which are specifically tailored to meet the needs of each person.
A treatment with Satoru may include a combination of Remedial Massage techniques including, Trigger Point Therapy, Muscle Energy Technique (MET), Myofascial Release and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) stretching. These aim to assist rehabilitation and normalisation of the muscular-skeletal system, encourage the health of lymphatic circulatory systems, and assist in pain relief. Importantly, these techniques help to promote wellbeing and relaxation, assisting the person to find optimal health.
Being originally from Japan, Satoru loves to incorporate the Shiatsu Technique when necessary. Shiatsu is a therapeutic form of acupressure, muscle meridian stretching and corrective exercises where thumbs and palms are used to apply pressure to various parts of the body. Pressure can be gentle or firm, depending on the condition being treated.
