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.  Through working with natural energy pathways and acupressure points a receiver can become deeply relaxed.  This offers a powerful opportunity to address imbalances within the body and encourages vitality and calm to be established.  When the body is more relaxed it can restore and heal both physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.  This inner harmony and greater wellbeing encourage a receiver to become more at ease within their body and reap associated benefits.

What are the benefits of Shiatsu?

Receiving shiatsu offers a unique way to restore natural ease and wellbeing in the body.  Specific illnesses and conditions can be treated and through using diagnostic techniques I provide a supportive, nourishing and highly unique session tailored to your needs.   By encouraging greater physical and emotional resilience, the body is able to reduce existing aches and pains, and restore a greater sense of equilibrium.  Treatments can be varied and I offer a range of contact and quality of touch ranging from very light to deep tissue, slow and still and more physically dynamic.  Shiatsu is 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?

I offer a safe and compassionate space for you to gain more comfort and ease within your body and mind.  Following consultation, we move to bodywork and explore how best healing can begin.  We begin with 'not knowing' and create conditions where the body can speak of what it needs to receive touch and start the process of healing.  All treatments take place fully clothed and on a futon.  I work by using a range of diagnostic methods, stretching, holding and pressing techniques that work with energy channels and acupressure points in your body to find greater ease and comfort.  I also work with you to support your mind and emotions so that any tension can be released where there has been a build-up, or, can offer restorative energy where there has been depletion.
