Acupressure Massage and Reiki in Bethnal Green near Hackney, East London
Welcome to my website. My name is Toseki An. I am an experienced therapist specialised in Acupressure Massage and Reiki. My therapy room is based in Bethnal Green, East London. I am from Japan and come from a family of oriental medical practitioners.
I have been working as a therapist for 12 years. I have seen a great variety of people with different kinds of needs. Some of my clients range from athletes, chefs, artists, parents of young children to administrators.
Acupressure Massage is for alleviating stress and tightness in the mind and in the body. The therapist gently stimulates the acupressure points using the finger tips. It improves Ki energy flow in the meridian channels linked to the problem areas, releasing the mental and physical tension. This healing method has its foundation in Five Element Oriental Medicine. Certain meridians and acupressure points are chosen according to the patient’s condition. Often patients feel warm sensations rising up and down in the body during the treatment.
The Five Element Oriental Medicine originates in the ancient China. It was introduced to Korea and Japan forming the foundations in Korean Traditional Medicine, and Japanese Traditional Medicine.
Reiki is a Japanese therapeutic technique for balancing body energy flow, which creates the feeling of being centred mentally and physically. The therapist lightly places the hands on the various points on the body to reconnect the Ki energetic fields inside and outside the patient's body. Ki life force energy flows into the patient's body clearing mental and physical blockages. It does not involve any physical manipulation. It can be applied on tight stressed areas as well as injured, fragile and sensitive areas.
Ki energy & massage
Ki energy therapy blends well with bodyworks, especially with massage. Activation of Ki energy flow enhances therapeutic effect of the massage.
Ki life force energy & Oriental medicine
In traditional oriental medicine, the principal philosophy is that our mental and physical activities are maintained by the life force energy called Ki. It flows inside the human body along the channels called meridians. Imbalance in this energy flow leads to the weakening of the mind and body, creating various disorders. Ki energy flow can be supplied into the body and balanced by specialized therapies and methods, like Reiki, Acupoint Therapies, Yoga, Tai Chi and Qi gong. Ki is a Japanese word equivalent to Chinese Qi and Indian Prana.
The symptoms I have frequently dealt with include:
Stiff Shoulders & Neck
