Shiatsu in Dawlish

I love my new work space in Exeter, just a step out of my door & into ‘The Shiatsu Shed,’ a solid wood cabin.  However I also love where I work in Dawlish.  I am lucky enough to work with a team of talented & enthusiastic therapists in Dawlish.

The space is called ‘The Studio.’  It is right next to a stream & you can hear the relaxing & soothing water from the treatment space.  The Studio is really close to the town centre & is next to a carpark.

I now work in Dawlish every other Friday & offer appointments from 10am.  If you are interested in booking in Dawlish then do get in touch through the ‘contact me’ page.

 


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.


Shiatsu & Well-being – Exeter & Dawlish, Devon

Shiatsu is a gentle form of hands-on therapy. It is based in Traditional Chinese Medicine & uses the same pressure points & Meridians (lines of energy) as Acupucture. It uses the 5 Element diagnosis system, an Eastern, holistic form of understanding the body, mind & spirit.

Shiatsu also uses touch as a form of diagnosis, the practioner follows what they feel, or what they pick up, as they move around the body. Shiatsu is always tailored to that client, on that day, so every treatment is different. It can be a quiet & holding treatment &, when appropriate, it can be a more physical & energetic treatment.

Because of its approach Shiatsu is a very supportive therapy & can help with well-being & energy levels. It meets the client how & where they want to be met, it can meet them on a physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual level. Shiatsu works to balance the energy in the body, when there is balance there can be relief from symptoms & a sense of wellness.

I am offering tasters at an event on Sunday – a good opportunity to try this relaxing yet energising therapy out. The event is in Broadclyst, near Exeter, from 10.30 till 4.30. More details can be found on my Facebook page.

Shiatsu for Friends & Family – Exeter & Dawlish, Devon

I use Shiatsu on myself, my husband & children regularly. Not just for relaxation, although it’s great for that. My boys are noisy, energetic & enthusiastic so sometimes it is hard for them to settle at the end of the day.  It is a pleasure to give them a Shiatsu & watch them visibly calm down, breathe more deeply & slow down.  They often talk to me after a Shiatsu, or we play quietly together.  They also sleep well.

I use Shiatsu on myself to help when my mind is racing, I can slow myself down & think more clearly. I use it to help with digestion & menstruation. I have always suffered with painful periods & uncomfortable digestion, I can manage both a lot better with Shiatsu. I also use Shiatsu to support my motivation & mood.  I have in the past become stagnant & stuck in a rut but now I cam more adaptable & flexible & can make changes with more ease.

Obviously I am a fan of Shiatsu, I studied it for 3 years, alongside full-time work.  I can also pass on tricks & tips that I have learnt to help other people support their health & the health of their family.  I often give recommendations at the end of a session, lifestyle & diet options.  I also offer ideas of stretches or exercises that may help support their condition, complaint or their well-being.

I can offer longer Shiatsu appointments, at my home practice in Exeter.  These can include a full Shiatsu treatment plus guidance on ways to support you & your loved ones.

I’m off to stretch now, to help my circulation & to aid my sleep tonight. xx


Shiatsu Support – Exeter & Dawlish, Devon

So very excited to receive a large parcel in the post today.

I was pretty upset when my trusty, but bottom of the range, massage chair broke just before Christmas. I was in the middle of a session of Shiatsus for the hard working staff at my son’s school. I had to give some of the Shiatsus to people whilst they sat on a normal chair. Hardly relaxing, having to support yourself, rather than leaning into a comfy chair.

Since the breakage I have been searching for a replacement. I was close to purchasing a replacement of similar quality to my original when I stumbled across a hardly used, top of the range chair.

I am super happy & have tried it out on my family already. It’s really comfy & easily adjusts to fit any shape or size of client.

So watch out for upcoming events as I will now be giving Shiatsu on this beauty of a chair.

My next event is in Broadclyst, near Exeter – details can be found here

Fancy giving Shiatsu a try? Exeter & Dawlish, Devon

I was invited to speak at a local Fibromyalgia group, to talk about Shiatsu & it’s benefits. I had a great time & it became as much a discussion as a talk. 

However it reminded me that Shiatsu can be quiet hard to describe – I found myself saying regularly that its a good idea to try Shiatsu rather than only talking about it – I gave tasters at the end of the talk & they were well received. 

I am at an event near Exeter next month & will be offering Shiatsu tasters for £10. Tasters are a great way to get an idea of what Shiatsu massage is. 

Details of the event can be found here

The Shiatsu Shed – Exeter, Devon

It was a cold, dark day in Exeter today but the Shiatsu Shed was warm & cosy. 

I really enjoyed giving Shiatsu in out wooden cabin, it’s perfect for  a relaxing treatment.

As the wood warms it creates a really pleasing wood smell & feels like a light, warm, tranquil space.
