Shiatsu Exeter, Dawlish, Exmouth Devon

After a great holiday week – with my boys & the grandparents – I’m ready to get back into giving relaxing, nurturing & healing Shiatsu.

Our holiday was in Cornwall & I really appreciated the clean air, the space to breathe, the beauty & wildness of nature, the quiet, stillness of the remote areas.

I was reminded that as a therapist holding a quiet space is so important. Shiatsu is a safe & secure form of massage that allows the client space to breathe, to connect to how they feel, to feel the stillness that is in all of us. This space can provide relief & release from emotional strain but also physical complaints.

I love being reminded of how special Devon & Cornwall are, how easy it is to connect to nature. I am looking forward to bringing this feeling to my Shiatsu sessions when I get back into it tomorrow.

If you are suffering with back ache, Sciatica, Arthritis, poor circulation, a weak immune system, fatigue, stress, depression, insomnia or other issues then you may like to try a Shiatsu massage.

I have spaces still available for this week in Exwick, Exeter. I have a quiet & peaceful wooden cabin, perfect for these relaxing & therapeutic treatments. Later this month I am in Exmouth & early in May I am back in Dawlish.

Check out my Facebook page for offers & events. You may also like to look at the Shiatsu Society website for further information on Shiatsu.

You can also get in touch through the ‘Contact Me’ page. I’m always happy to discuss Shiatsu.

Have a good week – breathe the air, enjoy the signs of Spring, connect with nature whenever you can.

Shiatsu For All – Exeter, Dawlish, Exmouth, Devon

shiatsu 28.01.2017 008

Shiatsu is a gentle & supportive form of hands-on therapy so it suitable for any age . It can be given to children & they often lap it up. I have given family sessions, where the whole family has a treatment. These can be given as a home visit, which is agreed through discussion.

FB_IMG_1490903614572It is very accessible.  It is generally given on a futon mat on the floor. I also have a couch & a massage chair so if the floor is difficult then there are other options.  Shiatsu can be given with the client lying or sitting in any position,  allowing the client to always be comfortable. It always given through clothes but still provides a strong connection & satisfying massage.

shiatsu 28.01.2017 062Shiatsu provides a safe touch, which allows the client to quickly drift into a deeply relaxed state.  As it is a safe & secure form of therapy it can allow a client to explore their emotional or mental balance, feeling this through their bodies rather than thinking or talking it through. This can allow tension caused by stress, depression or anxiety to be released.

FB_IMG_1486158179562Shiatsu is tailored to suit that client on that day, which can make it a satisfying form of therapy, meeting the client how they want to be meet. It is a gentle but powerful form of therapy, although it can be more physical when appropriate, including stretches & rotations.

 

FB_IMG_1491158712734Shiatsu uses the same Meridians (lines of energy)  in the body that Acupuncture uses.  We also use the same pressure points on those Meridians.  We use massage techniques to work the Meridans & points to help the body to regain balance. When the body is in balance symptoms can ease, energy levels can rise, stress & anxiety can fall away, sleep can become deeper & healthier.  The body can feel like everything is working as it is supposed to, there is more flow & fluidity physically, mentally & emotionally.

 

Shiatsu Easter Treats, Exeter, Devon

Easter is so nearly upon us & it often comes with a lot of busy times, a pinch of stress & too much chocolate.  So how about finding some time for a relaxing, energising Shiatsu -to help you prepare for the weekend, or to help you recover from it – or give you a boost to get through the holidays.

Due to cancellations & a change of plans I have some spaces still available this week, in Exeter.  As an Easter treat these sessions come at £5 off – £35 rather than £40 – for some serious ‘me-time.’  The spaces I have available for £35 are at 9.45 & 11 on Tuesday 27th & 9.30 on Wednesday 28th.

It’s so important to look after ourselves & our health, so that we can support those around us.  A session of Shiatsu can set you up to deal with whatever gets thrown at you. It is gentle but powerful & can have a profound effect, sometimes quickly.

After Easter I have spaces available on Wednesday 4th April.  So maybe this is the perfect time to get a boost ready for the second week of the kids holidays!?

Have a great Easter everyone.

Shiatsu for Easter, Forget the Eggs! Exeter, Dawlish, Exmouth, Devon

Easter seems to have crept up quickly this year, what with the unseasonably cold weather & the regular snow days.  I don’t know about you but for us Easter is fairly busy, particularly if you include the two weeks of school holidays.  We have lots of catching up with family & various trips & activities planned.

If you are in a similar situation it may be a good idea to grab yourself a Shiatsu – either in preparation for the break or as a breather in the midst of it all.  Shiatsu is serious down time, a space for you & just you.  There are no expectations or demands, it’s easy you simply have to lie & rest. It is a very relaxing form of therapy.

Shiatsu is also energising, it can really help with energy levels & when that happens everything seems to be a little easier. Rather than feeling like you are pushing through treacle to get a mammoth list of jobs done you can start knocking those Easter jobs off.

Shiatsu has also been shown to help with stress & anxiety & maybe you are feeling some of this is coming your way over Easter, or that you are prone to anxious bouts. Shiatsu can ease the body, mind & spirit.  It is a very supportive treatment, allowing the tension to release.

I have appointments still available before Easter in Exeter.  I work in a solid wood cabin in my garden, which I have fondly nicknamed the ‘Shiatsu Shed.’ It is a perfect haven for a peaceful & relaxing Shiatsu, but close to the city centre & train station & easy parking.

The week following the Easter weekend I have appointments in Exeter & Dawlish.  I love working with a group of other therapists down in Dawlish, in a space called The Studio.  The space is right next to a carpark & a very short walk from the town centre or the train station.

If you can’t find the time in the next two weeks then maybe book in for after the madness! I have spaces in Exeter, Dawlish & Exmouth in the last two weeks of April, after the school holidays.

I’m always happy to talk Shiatsu so do get in touch through the ‘Contact Me’ page with any queries.

 

Shiatsu for Pain, Exeter, Dawlish & Exmouth, Devon

For those of you who don’t know Shiatsu is a form of hands-on therapy. It’s a bit like a massage, it uses massage techniques, but it is always given through clothing.  Shiatsu is generally given on a futon mat on the floor but can be given on a couch or massage chair. It is a very relaxing treatment that can also leave a client feeling energised.

Shiatsu is suitable for all & can help with a great number of conditions. It can be helpful for long-term care & can have preventative benefits.  I have had clients who have come for Shiatsu for various physical conditions including back ache, arthritis, hip issues, frozen shoulder, Sciatica & pelvic issues.

Shiatsu can also be helpful for emotional & mental concerns such as stress & anxiety. I have had clients come with issues such as work related stress, relationship breakdown or issues, high levels of anxiety & depression.

Pain is a common issue that people come for Shiatsu for, whether it is due to a recent accident or injury or a more chronic condition.  Clients have found that Shiatsu has helped ease pain levels for some period after a treatment.   Generally the pain relief lasts for longer & longer periods of time, as the client has more sessions.  In my experience Shiatsu seems to have a very positive effect on joint pain, whether that is Arthritis or an injury or another issue.

Clients have often expressed that the mental strain of pain is almost as bad as the actual pain itself.  Particularly if someone has lived with pain for a long period of time it can become an almost unbearable strain. Shiatsu is a very supportive treatment & it can provide comfort to the client, they may feel that they don’t have to manage it completely on their own.  Shiatsu can also help with energy levels & with a little more energy a client may feel they have the resources to be able to make changes & not feel that the pain is in control of them.

I love giving Shiatsu & hearing, from clients, about the positive effects it has for them.  If you would like to hear about events & offers then please like my Facebook page.  If you have any questions then do get in touch through the Contact Me page.

Shiatsu musings, Exeter, Dawlish & Exmouth, Devon

I have had a lovely day learning how to give Ginger Compress treatments.  They are an amazing remedy that creates warmth in the body.  The compress warms the kidneys, which are the burners for the body, energising the whole system. They can help alleviate a number of symptoms.

I love learning new skills & catching up with Shiatsu colleagues. Professional development courses are so important, for gaining new skills, but also for bringing new ideas & life to your practice.  I am really looking forward to the Shiatsu treatments I will be giving this week.

I am in Exeter this week but also, on Friday, I have my first pop-up day in Exmouth. I’m really excited about bringing Shiatsu to Exmouth.  Next week, as always I will be in Exeter & I have spaces on Tuesday & Wednesday.  I am also in Dawlish on Friday 23rd & I have spaces at midday & 1pm still available.

Shiatsu is a gentle but powerful form of hands-on therapy. It is suitable for everyone & is tailored to meet the needs of that client at that time.  It can be good for physical aliments as well as emotional & mental stresses & strains. Shiatsu is very relaxing but can also help with energy levels. Shiatsu can aid sleep & help with anxiety, stress & depression.

So a busy week of treatments for me.  I love giving Shiatsu & I’m always happy to discuss it if you have any queries. You can get in touch through the ‘Contact Me’ page.

Have a good week everyone.

Shiatsu after the snow, Exeter, Dawlish, Exmouth, Devon

Wow what a lot of snow we got this week. 4 inches in a day brought Exeter to a standstill. Our young boys had a field day, sledging down the middle of our normally busy road.

Almost as quickly as it happened it has nearly completely gone. Temperatures have returned to to normal for this time of year, the rain has returned & the snow is only in the corners & under the trees.

After an enjoyable break from normal life, so few cars & people with time to stop & chat, now this week is back to normal.

I am practicing in Exeter & Dawlish this week. I have spaces on Tuesday & Wednesday in Exeter for either Shiatsu or Natural Face Lift Massage treatments.

I also have a Saturday clinic this Saturday & have spaces available at 2pm & 3.15. This will be in the real wood cabin in my garden in Exwick, Exeter. It’s the perfect space for a relaxing treatment.

Also this Sunday is Mother’s Day & I can send gift vouchers electronically if you want to treat your special mother to a Shiatsu or Natural Face Lift Massage.

So back into the swing of things – I missed giving Shiatsu over the snowy days so looking forward to a full week of nurturing & energising treatments.

I’m always happy to discuss Shiatsu so do get in touch through the ‘Contact Me’ page with any questions.

Have a good week everyone.

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.

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.
