Maruan provides a quality of touch and approach that deeply supports your well-being, addresses “symptoms” which cause discomfort, and opens the space and understanding for you to discover how these may be related to your life situations. It is a process led by giving careful attention to your embodied being, its signals, needs and unique expression.
Maruan specializes in Zen Shiatsu, a Japanese bodywork that addresses the whole body through a system of meridians. His approach connects East and West by connecting meridians and fascia. Shiatsu includes finger, palm, and elbow pressure, holding points, range of motion movements, and meridian stretches to support your self-regulating abilities.
Maruan is looking forward to working with you at Blue Lotus Santa Fe, providing whole-person support through the expertise of an interdisciplinary team of experienced practitioners.
