Ha the school holidays can create stress and tension for sure. Lots of parents, including myself look forward to having time as a family, but even so there are always tough points.
So although it’s half term next week, down here in Exeter, Devon at least, I am still offering Shiatsu appointments. Obviously this is for those if you who are on a normal week and those of you who need to escape the half term madness. It’s also going to help my own sanity and energy for the kids too!
I’ve limited appointments but do still have spaces left. Have a look at the pages on this website for more information. To discuss or book message me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy half term everyone xx
Well no-one really thought we would get more snow – but here it is – with us again.
It was so warm & sunny on Friday, it felt like Spring was here but Winter was not done with us yet. We have a snow day tomorrow which is great extra family time but I am ready to be working, giving uplifting Shiatsu’s.
Spring is a good time of the year, there are ideas in the air & lots of opportunities starting to appear alongside the plants shoots out of the ground. However this year we still need to be in hibernation mood, there is a need for warmth & supportive treatments still. When the Spring energy does start to show itself it may be a difficult transition.
Shiatsu is adaptable & tailored specifically to the person & their needs & condition that day. I imagine that I may be giving Winter warming Shiatsu’s on Tuesday & supportive Spring Shiatsu’s by the end of the week.
Whatever the weather Shiatsu is a relaxing treatment & can help with energy levels & healthy sleep. It has been shown to hep with anxiety & stress. It is a unique form of therapy, that is supportive, holding the client in a very gentle but secure way. Shiatsu touch can release tension but also emotional stresses & strains held in the body.
I have some spaces still available next week – Monday afternoon, Tuesday morning & Wednesday – so you could sneak in a Shiatsu before Easter. These appointments are in Exeter. I am full in Dawlish this week but back there early April.
Hope you are warm & cozy wherever you are.
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
