What is Shibari?

Updated: Jun 16, 2023

Shibari is the Japanese art form that involves tying intricate and beautiful knots around a person's body to create a visually stunning design. Shibari is also known as Kinbaku, which means "the beauty of tight binding" in Japanese. The art form has been around for centuries and has evolved over time to become what it is today.


The focus of Shibari is on the aesthetic beauty of the knots and the emotional connection between the person tying and the person being tied.

The ties used in Shibari are not just random knots. They are designed to put pressure on specific points on the body, creating a sensation of tension and relaxation. This tension and release can be very pleasurable and can even create a feeling of euphoria.

Shibari is a form of communication between the people involved in tying. It is a wonderful way to communicate in a non-verbal way, which goes beyond words and mind. People come to a meditation and communicate through the body and energy.


Shibari is not just about the physical act of tying someone up. It is about the emotional connection between the people involved. It is about trust, communication, and the exploration of the self. It is a way for people to connect with their bodies and their emotions in a safe and consensual way.

While Shibari has a long history in Japan, it has gained popularity around the world in recent years. There are many Shibari communities and events where people can learn more about the art form and practice it with others.

Shibari is often associated with BDSM, but it is important to note that it doesn't necessarily have to be connected to such practices or sexuality. It can also be focusing on nurturing connection and softness.

In conclusion, Shibari is a beautiful and complex art form that involves tying intricate knots around a person's body. Shibari is a way for people to explore their bodies and emotions in a safe and consensual way and is an art form that can be enjoyed by people with different intentions and needs. It creates a connection between the person tying and the person being tied where deep layers of emotions and the unconscious can be accessed. For some people it even has a therapeutic aspect to work on blockages and patterns.
