Shiatsu Video, Exeter, Devon

A very interesting video abouy Shiatsu – take a look

I found the way that Shiatsu is being used alongsise conventional medicine inspiring.

I also loved the way Shiatsu, and the Shiatsu connection, os described.

The best bit was the benefits that the patients found aftet having Shiatsu. I struggled to clearly describe this form of hands-on therapy and love to hear people took from their own experience.

So take a look yourself for an idea of what it’s all about.


Sun and Shiatsu, Exeter, Devon

Sitting in the sun looking for inspiration for today’s blog I realised a couple of things.

The energy at the moment, be it bright and light, has a strong connection to the earth, a sense of grounding, a sense of feeling supported.

I am really enjoying this natural grounded feeling. I generally need to work hard to feel at this so this is a pleasant change for me. How about you?

I have found it the perfect energy for quiet meditation and reflection, for connecting to nature and for leaving my head and thoughts behind and listening to my intuition. Also hard foe ne normally! I have found it easier to sit in the present and be grateful for what I have.

To me this is an extra special present from nature, who knows what the next couple of months or the rest of the year will be like. What a pleasure to have such light and warmth, even for a short while.

I have also enjoyed stretching, which is a serious Spring energy form of exercise. There is some movement and motivation generated by this energy that is really easy to harness.

Look I saw people in shorts and t-shirts at the supermarket and a friend was talking about planting out her seedlings. Let’s not get carried away. It feels like there is still the quiet, inward energy of Winter around – but pleasantly balanced with the upward, outward Spring energy.

As far as I understand the ‘fake Spring’ disappears tomorrow but I’m hoping my practice stays. I am so enjoying feeling comfortable in my own quiet, whilst waking my body slowly from its Winter slumber with a good amont of yoga and stretching.

I am enjoying my Shiatsu practice too. There is more energy to play with. Everyone retreats and retracts in the Winter, they need boosting up. The Spring brings more movement and flow of energy. The work seems to still be pretty transformational, following from big shifts that started last year. Clients are leaving behind old habits and actions and are steping forward. They are really feeling their hurt and pain but are happy to do so, understanding they have to to move on.

I say make hay whilst the sun shines, make the most of these special few days. But get ready to hanker down again as that Winter energy is still around and hasn’t funished with us yet!


Shiatsu in the Spring, Exeter, Devon

Having had a great family time over the last week, what great weather for half term, I am back offering Shiatsu.

Boy has Spring started springing. The Spring energy is upwars and out, like the bulbs pushing up and through the earth.

When in balance this energy allows us to use our creativity, to conjure up plans and ideas. It allows us to be adaptable and flexible, physically and mentally.

When out of balance the Spring energy can make us feel like we are stuck in a rut, like we’ve got no options. We can feel tight and inflexible, quick to anger or frustration.

Spring loves a good stretch, like waking from sleep, after the cold Winter warming the body. So gentle does it but some yoga or simple stretches can help the body get in tune with the season.

Spring is the time for ideas and planning, fruition and flowering comes later. So it’s not time to do too much, more time to plan what you’d like to acheive.

I offer Shiatsu on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, with some evening appointments available.

I work in Exwick, Exeter and have clinics in Exmouth and Dawlish.

Go on let it go – with Supportive Shiatsu in Exeter

Well this year started with a wind of change. Everyone I know began the year by cleaning and clearing their house. Moving on their junk and excess belongings, shifting furniture to sweep away dust and getting the brushes out for at least a touch up.

There was such a strong cleansing energy it was almost irresistible, did you feel it? There is also an energy around allowing people to let go of their emotional baggage. Have you noticed old patterns and behaviours, historical emotional experiences coming back into your mind?

I have a lot of clients who are harnessing the opportunity to revisit their pain and hurts and question their old behaviours. Through having Shiatsu they have been able to understand the self-beliefs that have led to the negative habits or emotional situations.

The Sessions of Shiatsu are very supportive and provided a secure and safe environment to really feel how you are. Being held, through physical touch, allows emotions to rise and be released. Old patterns that aren’t helpful can be felt and then dropped. This feels like a good time to look at our complex and complicated journeys. It feels like it is ‘in the air.’ That doesn’t mean it is easy.

Our lives leave physical imprints on our bodies. Pain and tension, weakness and injury take their toll. Shiatsu is a hands-on therapy that can help support the body, mind and soul. In my experience it can loosen tension and strengthen areas of weakness. Attending to the physical issues but also the emotional holding that is generally attached to an injury.

So are you feeling what I am feeling? Can you sense that this is a good time to let old things go and move forward with freedom and confidence? Come and have a Shiatsu with me and see if it’s the thing to help you to go forward.
