A subtle energy healing system developed in Japan utilizing a quiet, direct touch of your body to channel Qi. This vital energy is channeled to support the body’s natural ability to heal. It is done through the use of 14 different hand positions which cover most of your body, both front and back.
Translated shiatsu means “finger pressure”. The therapist uses only his fingers and hands, no mechanical apparatus or medicines are used. This pressure is adjusted in response to the reactions of the treated points in order to bring curative relief to the affected areas of the muscular, hormonal and/or nervous systems.
Acupuncture is an alternative medicine that treats patients with the insertion and manipulation of thin, solid needles in the body. Since its origins in Ancient China, acupuncture has been embedded in the concepts of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Its general theory is based on the premise that bodily functions are regulated by the flow of an energy-like entity called Qi (chi).
Pranic Healing is the sublime science of healing physical and psychological disorders by cleansing the prana (vital energy). Pranic Healing has gained popularity as a highly effective no-touch, no-drug complementary therapy system that treats and purifies the prana to heal ailments and provide solutions for day-to-day problems.
It is often said that when you learn to control the breath the mind will follow. Pranayama is an ancient Indian practice that explores the relationship between the breath and the mind. ‘Prana’ means vital energy, which is found in all living things, and ‘yama’ means regulation. Through pranayama we learn how to regulate our energy and to quieten and focus the mind using the breath.
Julien Adam: Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner
Julien Adam is a French Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner whose humble beginnings started as a physiotherapist looking for ways to help people around him. He then realized the limitations of what he can do so he devoted his time in studying more. Julien’s interest in health brought him close to Chinese medicine and reluctantly found himself lost in the healing power of the art. He then continued his pursuit of expanding his knowledge of modern techniques and classical teachings by receiving training in osteopathy.
After working for 16 long years in France, he wanted to travel around and see how he can be of more impact. Now being a resident in Asia, Julien fell in love with Siem Reap. He has lived in Cambodia for the past six months and has been actively doing treatments from acupuncture, acupressure, osteopathy, TCM and many more.
Moving to Siem Reap has opened new doors for discovering different techniques with his treatments, being a medical specialist he incorporates all of these elements to his therapies to make it more effective. He’s also a long time practitioner of Qi Gong, Tai Chi and for him, maintaining harmony with your whole-being is one of the best thing you could achieve in your lifetime.
Pascal Wagenvoort: Shiatsu Therapist
Pascal Wagenvoort our Medical Therapist was born in Utrecht, Netherlands. With a love of giving therapies, he followed his passion to complete a course in sports theraphy. Expanding his repertoire, he studied various forms of Shiatsu massage, including the Namikoshi, at the European Shiatsu Academy, of which he is still a member.
Originally Shiatsu was used to keep the body healthy but later proved that it’s a powerful tool in aiding bodily sickness, injury and recovery with the usage of fingers and hands. With many types of Shiatsu, Pascal favors the Namikoshi approach, as it uses direct finger pressure to the meridian points, thus allowing the body to react directly through reflexes and eliminate, through the bladder, the toxins that the body accumulates.
