Tao Shiatsu Clinic
The temple also functions as a treatment clinic where Tao Shiatsu practitioners give heartfelt and effective healing sessions to their patients.
Tao Shiatsu is energy medicine. Vital life energy, or “Ki”, is in constant movement. Pain and disease result from blockages in the movement of Ki. Tao Shiatsu stimulates your body’s internal healing power by releasing stagnated and toxic Ki, and the restored flow allows for stress, pain and disease to be healed from their source.
Tao Shiatsu is effective in bringing relief to many conditions including: Back, neck, shoulder and joint problems, stress and tension disorders, headaches and migraines, digestive problems, depression and emotional challenges, insomnia, arthritis, sciatica, and more. Tao Shiatsu treats the whole person through the application of steady continuous pressure along your meridians, or “ki channels” in the neck, back, arms, hands, legs and feet. Assisted stretches and the treatment of specific release points complement this healing process.
Giving to others is the guiding principle and basic heart of Tao Sangha. On a regular basis, Tao Shiatsu practitioners and students organize events to raise money for the temple’s charity, Global Uni Community. At Charity events, everybody’s giving heart can heal and grow: the shiatsu receivers give money to the charity in exchange for treatment, and the practitioners volunteer their time and Ki.
Nembutsu practice brings deep relief and healing to the practitioner and to the earth. This event is designed to welcome newcomers into the Nembutsu experience.
