Shiatsu for Everyone, Exeter, Dawlish & Exmouth, Devon

Shiatsu is a gentle but powerful hands-on therapy that originates from Japan. It is a bit like a massage, using similar techniques to a massage but always given through clothes. Shiatsu is generally given on a futon mat on the floor, but it can be given on a couch or seated if needs be.

Shiatsu can be a very slow & gentle treatment, working one part of the body for a long time, it is nourishing & tonifying. It can be, when appropriate a more active treatment, with stretches & rotations. Clients often comment on how nice it is to have someone stretch them.  The stretches & rotations relieve the tension they feel, often in their neck & shoulder area.

Shiatsu meets clients how they want to me met, which can make it a very satisfying form of therapy.  It is tailored to that client on that day, every Shiatsu is different because of this.

I love giving Shiatsu as is it so adaptable, to each client every time they come.  Also it is a treatment that is suitable for anyone & everyone.  I have given children Shiatsu, they absolutely soak it up. I have also given Shiatsu to whole families, to the parents & the children, it’s a really lovely thing to give Shiatsu to everyone. I have older clients, some of whom need to have their treatment on a couch or massage chair. They have commented on the changes they have experienced from having Shiatsu, that the treatment is very gentle but the benefits are large.

In my experience Shiatsu can be very beneficial for physical issues, accidents, injuries, pain.  It has been found to have long term care & preventative benefits. It can also help with emotional & mental issues & concerns.  It has been shown to help with stress, anxiety & depression.  I have had clients who have come because they are suffering with work-related stress, they have issues in their relationship, they have had a big life change.

Shiatsu has also been found to support deep relaxation, aid healthy sleep & improve energy levels. These three benefits can have big effects on all areas of a life.  Symptoms can ease, mental & emotional strain can be relieved & the body can move with more ease & fluidity.

If you would like to discuss if Shiatsu may be able to help support you then do get in touch through the ‘Contact Me’ page or call me on 07791 070837.  I am always happy to talk Shiatsu.  I practice in Exwick, Exeter every week & in Dawlish every other Friday.  I have pop-up events in Exmouth.

Baby it’s Cold Outside! Shiatsu for warmth, Exeter, Dawlish & Exmouth, Devon

Woweee it’s as cold as they said it was going to be – my the wind is bitter & the cold is so sharp it gets into the bones & the core of the body.  It is showing up any old aches & pains & is so tiring, to get through the day & to keep the body burning enough to ward off the cold.

I am in Exeter this week, giving warming & energizing Shiatsu & I still have some spaces available – on Wednesday & Friday.  The Shiatsu Shed, the wooden cabin in my garden, is super cosy.  I have plenty of heaters & an electric blanket so getting on the mat & under the blanket can feel like getting into bed.

Shiatsu is a gentle hands-on therapy that looks to balance the energy in the body.  It can create a warmth in the core of the body & help with circulation right to the extremities. It can support the body’s natural immune system, to ward off coughs & colds.  Shiatsu can help with energy levels, providing more resources, to generate heat, & energy for movement, vital in this cold weather. It may also help to ease the aches & pains that show up in this bitter cold weather.

I work in Dawlish every other Friday & I am going to have a pop-up Shiatsu day next month.  This week I am at home in Exeter – if you would like a warming Shiatsu do get it touch through the ‘Contact Me’ page – I’m always happy to answer any questions too.

Keep warm this week:

  • Wear an extra pair of socks & even a pair in bed
  • Wrap a scarf around your lower back – keeping your Kidneys & Sacrum warm
  • Make a warming cup of fresh Ginger, Lemon & Honey
  • Wear a good hat & scarf around neck & dropped to also cover the chest

Shiatsu for Joint Pain, Exeter, Dawlish & Exmouth, Devon

The longer I practice & the more cases I see the more I believe Shiatsu is really helpful for joint pain. It can be good for any pain, providing some level of pain relief but also supporting the client with the mental strain & tension that comes from dealing with pain.

I have had clients who have come to me because they suffer with pain in their knees, hips, shoulders, wrists & fingers. Clients have mentioned, after their treatment, that their pain is less for some time.

Shiatsu is a gentle hands-on therapy that works to balance the energy in the body.  By holding the joint, or on either side of the joint, Shiatsu can ease the discomfort.  There doesn’t need to be stretches or rotations of the joints to give a result, very gentle massage can really help.  Sometimes it is appropriate to involve stretches & rotations in the treatment, this can loosen a joint, again giving relief from the symptoms.

Shiatsu is a very supportive & nurturing form of therapy & can allow the client to feel  supported.  They don’t feel so alone when coping with the emotional & mental strain of dealing with the pain.  Clients have also mentioned that they feel some of the mental & emotional stress eases, thoughts seems to flow more easily.

Shiatsu can help with energy levels.  It can also provide deep relaxation & can aid healthy sleep patterns. Getting proper relaxation & sleep & feeling more energised can help a client feel better & allow them to make positive changes that may help with their health & any pain they are experiencing.

I love giving Shiatsu & hearing the results from the clients.  I’m also always happy to talk Shiatsu so do get in touch through the’contact me’ page with any questions.

I work in Exeter mostly, in Dawlish every other Friday & I have my first pop-up session of Shiatsu in Exmouth next month. Like my Facebook page for info on events & offers.

Shiatsu for Relaxation, Exeter, Devon

Having a Shiatsu treatment is relaxing in itself, it is an hour of time out, no expectations, no demands, no responsibilities. It is a gentle hands-on therapy that is tailored to suit that person on that day at that time. This can make it a very satisfying form of therapy, finding the places on the body that want to be worked & then working them in the way they want to be worked.

Shiatsu can support with physical issues but it also good at tackling emotional or mental concerns.  There is a short consultation at the beginning of the session & then the rest of the time is hands-on work.  Shiatsu allows the client to feel how they feel, there is no need for discussion, although this sometimes takes place.  Allowing the client to feel the tension in their body can provide release or relief, from physical tension but also held emotional & mental tension.

The relaxation felt in a treatment can stay with a client for sometime afterwards. Release from tension can make things feel easier, physical effort & also emotional & mental thought can flow with more ease & fluidity.  Everything just happens more easily.  Shiatsu can also help with energy levels & aid sleep, also providing an ability to relax more easily.

I work in Exeter & Dawlish. In Exeter I have a wooden cabin in the garden, which provides the perfect environment for a relaxing & energising treatment.

Do get in touch through the ‘Contact Me’ page – I’m always happy to talk Shiatsu.
