What is Shiatsu?

Shiatsu is a new name for the oldest form of medicine - healing with hands.

Vicky Evans

Shiatsu means ‘finger pressure’ and is a Japanese form of bodywork treatment that encourages the body to heal. I work with clients to help release energy blockages in the body, release toxins and tension.  Through working with natural energy pathways within the body and acupressure points from Traditional Chinese Medicine a recipient can become deeply relaxed.  This offers a powerful opportunity to address imbalances within the body and allows vitality and calm to be established.  When the body is relaxed it can work to restore and heal both physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.  This inner harmony and greater wellbeing allow a shiatsu recipient to become more at ease within their body.

What are the benefits of Shiatsu?

Having a shiatsu treatment offers a fantastic way in which to restore natural ease and wellbeing in the body.  Specific illnesses and conditions can be treated following consultation and through using diagnostic techniques I will work to provide a supportive, nourishing and highly unique session tailored to your needs. 


Through building a greater physical and emotional resilience, the body can eliminate existing aches and pains, and restore a greater sense of equilibrium to be reached.  Treatments can be varied and I offer a range of contact and quality of touch ranging from very light to deep tissue.  


Shiatsu can be beneficial for all kinds of health issues brought about by stressful lifestyles, illness and trauma and many causes of pain and disease.


What should I expect in a Shiatsu treatment?

An initial consultation will take place so we can discuss your needs and I offer a safe and compassionate environment for you to discover what will help you lead a healthier and more relaxed life, so gaining more comfort and ease within your body.

All treatments are fully clothed and take place on a natural fibre futon.  Blankets and cushions can offer greater warmth and comfort if needed.   I work by using a range of meridians and pressure points in your body to help find greater ease and comfort.


I can also work with you to support your mind and emotions so that tension can be released where there has been a build-up or can offer restorative energy where there has been depletion.
