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.
Valentine’s Day is nearly on us. I am offering 10% off gift vouchers purchased before the 14th February, for a Valentine. These vouchers can be used for Shiatsu or Natural Face Lift Massage. Both these treatments are deeply relaxing, nurturing & supportive. They can help with energy levels & release tension & stress. So I reckon they are a perfect Valentine’s present.
I can send vouchers out electronically so still plenty of time to get them arranged. Do get in touch through the ‘contact me’ page to arrange.

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
Excited to be attending my first event of the year in just a couple of weeks time. I’ll be offering Shiatsu taster sessions at the East Devon Mind, Body, Spirit event on Sunday February 18th. The event is going to be held in Broadclyst, at the Victory Hall. The venue is near for Exeter folks & there is plenty of free parking.
If you have been reading my blog & wondering what Shiatsu is then a taster is a great way to find out what this hands-on therapy involves. The tasters will only be £10 but 20 minutes long, plenty of time to get an idea of Shiatsu.
The Shiatsu tasters will be given on a massage chair, that supports your whole body, its relaxing & comfortable. Normally Shiatsu is given on a futon mat on the floor but can be given on a couch or on a massage chair. Shiatsu is always given through clothes.
Do come & say hello if you are in the area on the 18th. If you are struggling to feel energized in this cold, wet weather then come & get a boost of energy with a Shiatsu taster.
Information about the event and the full list of exhibitors can be seen here
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

As we get near to the end of the January there are just a few spaces left for a Natural Face Lift massage for just £10.
I’m offering case studies until the end of the month then I’ll be charging the full price for the treatments.
These are great massages. They help the face look fresh & relaxed & they affect the whole body, relieving tension & stress.
The massage uses Shiatsu points along with Japanese & Indian face massage techniques.
The full price will be £25 for a mini-massage & £40 for an hour deluxe massage.
If you’d like to book a case study treatment before the end of January do get in touch through the ‘contact me’ page.
