Welcome to Benjamin Curtet’s website, therapeutic shiatsu practitioner
Trained in therapeutic shiatsu over the span of 9 years and graduated from the « Institut Français de Shiatsu » founded by Michel Odoul. Introduced to the Namikoshi style by master Watanabe from the
Japan Shiatsu College. Trained in Qi Gong by Dr. Liu Dong.
Shiatsu (« Shi » for finger, and « atsu » for pressure) is a Japanese traditional therapy that was developed hundred of years ago uniting both Chinese and Japanese traditional medicines. This body therapy helps the patient release toxins accumulated throughout the year, both physically and mentally, using finger-hand pressure, stretches, joint rotations, and acupressure points.
The physical effects of treatment may include relaxation of the nervous system, improved circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid, stimulation of the hormonal system, increased vitality, etc.
I welcome my patients in the 10th arrondissements (République) and in the 18th arrondissement in Paris.
Dalai Lama's quote (When asked what surprised him about humanity the most):
“Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
