Would you like to:
feel more relaxed and peaceful?
be more in touch with your energy, dynamism and vitality?
be more connected with your emotions?
maintain your health and well-being?
feel more comfortable in your body by releasing pain and tension?
Shiatsu can help in all these ways and more!
In shiatsu, we work with meridians, acupressure points, muscles and joints, to enable your Qi (energy) to come into a dynamic balance. This can help to resolve symptoms and benefit the body, emotions, mind and spirit. It also feels great!
Shiatsu is a very versatile approach that can be used if you are in good health, recovering from injury, dealing with ongoing health conditions or looking for support during challenging life events.
I have experience of working with clients with a wide range of symptoms and conditions. Some are more common, such as back pain, neck and shoulder tension, sciatica, headaches and migraines, digestive problems, anxiety and depression, fatigue, and menopausal symptoms. I also work with clients with more unusual issues, such as hypermobility syndromes, kidney failure, nerve damage, PTSD. If you would like more information about whether shiatsu is suitable for your condition, please get in touch.
I also specialise in working with pregnancy and postnatal care.
A shiatsu session generally lasts for about an hour, and takes place on a futon mat on the floor. Shiatsu is done through the clothes, so it is a good idea to wear loose comfortable clothing. The treatment will be tailored to meet your needs, and is likely to include holding, stretching and hands-on work to increase the balance and flow of energy (Qi) in the meridians. It doesn’t hurt!
