Shiatsu Wrist Adjustment

Increase mobility & alignment in the wrist articulations.

This is a great technique for creating more alignment and mobility in the wrist articulations. There are 8 carpal bones in the wrist that lie between the radius and ulna and the metacarpals of the fingers. Many people experience stiffness and pain in this area of their body due to repetitive use or postural habits. 

The wrists also reflect the condition of the pelvic/hip region of the body and can indicate issues in the reproductive organs or lower bowels. This adjustment can stimulate more balance and chi flow to these related areas.

Please Note: It is NOT appropriate to use this technique on clients who are experiencing acute pain and inflammation in their wrists, or who feel pain upon the initial gentle rocking into the carpal area.
