What is Shiatsu?

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

Shiatsu is a touch therapy deeply rooted in East Asian Medicine that encourages the body to heal. Through working with natural energy pathways in the body and acupressure points, a receiver can become deeply relaxed which offers a powerful opportunity to explore and address imbalances held in the body.  When your body enters a deeper state of relaxation, there comes the chance to seek restoration and healing at a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level so bringing about a more profound and longer-lasting change.

Shiatsu is beneficial for all kinds of health issues brought about by stressful lifestyles or transition periods.  I will help you relax deeply, treat your body as a whole, and promote good health. I can support you during times when there may be emotional issues affecting your wellbeing.
