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.
