by Hermann Grobbauer This is a picture report of a Central Channel treatment with a woman who comes regularly for treatment. The first time she came for shiatsu treatment, she was suffering from 30 years of migraines – often 3 times a week. She said to me later that she would need three sessions to trust this work (this was in 1996). Since then she started with yoga-meditation, and also did some shiatsu trainings and shamanic studies with my teacher and me. She said her life changed a lot. The migraines appear only sometimes and she handles them well.
In 2002 she got diagnosed with fibromyalgia. She started again with regular Shin Tai treatments, in addition to homeopathic treatments with her doctor. Shiatsu Shin Tai always gives her release of the pain.
These photos were taken in June 2010. She came with acute symptoms and had a lot of pain in her tissues. I took the pictures, because I wanted to know if there would be a change of position with only central channel contacts. After the treatment I showed her the photos. She was very surprised. She thought her right side was up… I got her permission to use them.
The first two photos are when she laid down for her treatment. She said she felt comfortable and 'straight' on the cushions.
