Why I give shiatsu
I was introduced to shiatsu while I was living in Japan. I used to walk past a massage school, and peering in, see all those tables and wonder what they were doing. On having my first shiatsu massage I was hooked. I can't imagine not having regular sessions of shiatsu now.
Shiatsu can help with many things. It can provide support during ill health; ease feelings relating to grief or depression; soften stiff joints & muscles or be used for pain management. It can aid in recovery of energy after giving birth or bouts of poor health. It has the ability to make you feel really rested to stimulating your creativity and releasing trapped life force. Sounds amazing? Well, it really is.
Along with qigong exercise, and a healthy diet, you can learn to manage your energy better and reconnect to your body. Also helps manage both acute and chronic conditions. I hope shiatsu can bring you relief and be as beneficial to you as it has been to me and the people I treat. I love how it adapts to problems at different levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. And that's why I give shiatsu.
I completed my 3-year training with the British School of Shiatsu; studied Shintai Shiatsu with Saul Goodman and completed my maternity training with Suzanne Yates. I did a 6-month work placement supporting substance misusers at Foundation 66 and spent another year volunteering with Blenheim CDP in the same field. I have also studied facial and ear acupuncture for MSK conditions, as well as cupping & moxibustion: techniques I sometimes use to enhance my shiatsu work. I am continually evolving. I also teach Qigong online for an older person's charity and offer exercises to clients that can benefit them.
