What is it?
Shiatsu is a gentle but powerful Japanese therapy which uses joint mobilisation, stretches and pressure along energy channels and acupoints to rebalance the body.
It can be gentle or dynamic, depending on the client’s needs.
It feels great – deeply relaxing or energising – and is therefore good for relaxation or giving yourself a treat.
Regular Shiatsu is also good for health maintenance and, being rooted in Traditional Oriental Medical theory – like acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine – it is a powerful remedial therapy that can help with many physical, mental and emotional issues.
Please contact the Centre to discuss your own particular situation – I will recommend a different type of therapy, if appropriate.
Shiatsu takes place fully clothed, usually on a padded mat on the floor – but it can be done in a chair or on a couch. Loose clothing should be worn (not skirts or jeans) and clean socks brought.
Most clients book one hour treatments, but shorter sessions are available. The first session is normally longer, as I will need to take a case history.
Stella says that ‘before I was introduced to Shiatsu and Susan I was suffering from recurring debilitating migraines every couple of weeks. I found that Shiatsu helped enormously and although each session was different it was very specific to my needs at that precise time. Shiatsu gives me a sense of balance throughout my body, being calm and relaxed, yet revitalised and with a feeling of well-being. Best of all, migraines are now a thing of the past!’
‘The backpain I‘ve had for 2 years has gone … I’ll recommend Shiatsu to all my friends’ (Client who received one 30-minute treatment and phoned me 3 months later! I’d normally expect to have to do more than one treatment.)
‘I can turn my neck and look over my shoulders, and sleep comfortably for the first time in years.’ (Lady in her 80s who has had neck/shoulder pain since experiences as a young woman).
‘It’s great to hear silence again!’ (Client who had suffered from tinnitus for several months).
‘I’m feeling much calmer and more able to cope. I am going places I wouldn’t have considered a few months ago.’ (Client who experienced panic attacks).
