c ) MAINTAINING HEALTH
In general SHIATSU helps to:
CHANGE is the way of nature, whereby things always change. Seasons change, a day is followed by a night and so on. NOTHING EXISTS IN ABSOLUTE STILLNESS. HUMAN BEINGS CHANGE TOO. Either for the worse or for the better. So the object of SHIATSU is to have our inner-changing factor moving in a positive direction.
Allowing change and flexibility to occur in ourselves, we are provided with an ever-changing sense of physical and emotional balance. We will give an example in order to have a clearer picture on what is happening inside the body of every human being.
Any person from the time of conception is developing a particular constitution, in all human spheres/dimensions. By growing older that constitution begins to become more stereotyped. More specifically in certain emotional spheres we feel strong whereas in others we feel weak. In the same way in our bodily functions some organs do work or get stressed more and others do less.
The same thing also happens with the muscular system whereby we tend to use some muscle groups more than others. As a result we end up to build hard-strong and soft-weak different muscle groups. Even if we split the body vertically into two halves the right side might be stronger than the left or vice versa.
In effect various problems might arise in certain times of our lives. These could range from non-serious to very serious or even fatal ones.The range of patterns/constitution that we do get stuck in, denotes the severity of the problems. In other words, it is like having a particular season going on all the time.
The role of SHIATSU is to help nature do its work. We do not treat a particular symptom only. The object is to help the whole organism to function smoothly. This can only be achieved by allowing flexibility and change to occur both physically and emotionally.
Simply, the balanced state that SHIATSU brings to the body is not one that all organs are made to function at all times with the same rhythm. It is rather a state where some organs will at some times come to function more and at other periods less.
The same occurs for the muscular system. In order to have a movement towards one direction, one muscle group must contract and some other one extend. In a balanced body the range of movement done in one direction must be the same if the movement is done in the opposite direction too, e.g. if we twist our bodies with a maximum of 60 degrees both left and right then we have balance. However if we are able to reach 70 degrees to the left and 50 degrees to the right, certainly we do not have any balance.
We need to have an equal rhythm of going left to right, up and down, back and forth. Emotionally we need to be experiencing equally all kinds of emotions, like sadness, fear, joy, anger, etc . What we don't need to have, is to be stuck in one emotion all the time, while not being able to experience another.
Change is neccessary for life to exist.The whole world consists of opposing forces/qualities. If we want to walk, one foot must bear the weight first and the other must be empty to proceed.The reason that people don't know what balance is supposed to mean, is because they haven't got paid any attention to their bodies. Only those that had paid attention, had realised that something is not in order.
Therefore the priority of SHIATSU therapy is to have ORDER established. Treating disorders is secondary. Imagine the cost of pain, time, and money that is needed to have a particular operation. On the other hand, think how enjoyfull it is to be healthy and definitely much less money and certainly no pain.
If you have a car, no-matter, be it a new or an old one, and you want to have it running well, then you would care to have it serviced from time to time. However, if you honestly consider your body to be more important than the car, then you will take serious steps to have it protected.
