It’s nearly time for me to be heading up to the north of this beautiful county, to be an exhibitor at the North Devon Mind, Body, Soul Festival. It was such a joy to give lots of Shiatsu taster sessions there last year so I can’t wait to do it again this year.
To me it felt like a very special event, there are simply loads of exhibitors & an incredible buzz about the place. It was such a welcoming, open & positive event & i would say well worth a trip.
It’s on Saturday & Sunday, 10am till 4pm. Shiatsu taster sessions are 30 minutes long & £20. For information on the the event or to book in advance head to the Big Sheep Website
Maybe I’ll see some of you there, to get a first taste of Shiatsu or to get a really cheap but pretty long treatment. If you would like to know more about Shiatsu or me have a look at my ‘About Shiatsu’ page or my ‘About Me’ page. I also have a Facebook page, which you can like to hear about events & offers.
Have a good weekend whatever you plans.
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.
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.
So I have struggled to get to this blog over the last week. I was busy giving lots of Shiatsu at the weekend. One of the principles of Shiatsu massage is to be effortless, to not work at giving the treatment. However doing numerous massages over two days made this difficult & I was tired afterwards.
Then I returned back to Exeter to my children, this was the first time I had been away from them over night. My eldest took it in his stride but my youngest struggled & for a couple of days he really made me know that he had missed me! Following that he has now got ill & I was up all night with him, with earache.
In amongst this I have managed to update my Shiatsu accounts, ready to do the dreaded tax return. I have arranged a couple of new Shiatsu opportunities & have seen new clients. I do enjoy working for myself & mixing my work & home life so closely but it has meant I’m not left with much energy at the end of the day.
I have been doing Do-In every morning, waking each of the meridians, lines of energy, that Shiatsu works on in the massage. Taking time to wake up my joints & limbs, focussing on each part of my body. Rubbing & gentle hitting the meridian lines. Stretching & rotating my joints. This has helped re-build my energy after the busy weekend.
I have used Shiatsu to support my own digestion. I have had issues with this in the past & generally I am ok now. I ate different things at different times this weekend & this has left me in some discomfort. Shiatsu can be really good for digestive issues, for reflux or heart-burn, for IBS or constipation. I have worked specific points, or Tsubos, & have relieved the symptoms I had.
So a busy Shiatsu week down here is sunny but freezing cold Exeter, Devon. Even when I’m busy I still have time to chat Shiatsu so if you would liek to know if Shiatsu may help support you then do get in touch. you can do this thriugh the ‘contact me’ page. You can also check out & like my Facebook page for offers & events. You can also head to the Shiatsu Society website for information on Shiatsu massage.
I’ve just enjoyed a really happy & satisfying weekend giving Shiatsu treatments at the North Devon Mind Body Soul festival. The event is much bigger than you might imagine with over 60 exhibitors & a great mix of services on offer. It was a really friendly atmosphere, with lots of chat, laughter & networking.
For me the amount of Shiatsu massages I gave was perfect, not too many & not too few. It was a great mix of clients & I felt a strong sense of connection with them all. I already signed up to attend next year I enjoyed it so much!
Just a few days until this event now
I’ll be offering 30 minute Shiatsu massage treatments for £15. You can pre-book here. Go the the Website for more details of the event. Also you can have a look at the Facebook page.
Please let anyone know who you think might be interested. Maybe see you there?
