Supportive Shiatsu for a positive 2020

There is always a focus in early January to push the new year, new you drive. It seems a funny time of year to start crazy exercising regimes and crash diets.

Over indulging at Christmas is a strong motivation but deep winter is a time for quiet and rest. With deep winter reflection and meditation comes the energy to push through new growth in the Spring and blossom in the Summer.

Setting resolutions of what we leave behind in the old year and what we look to achieve in the new is really positive right now. Spring is the time to flesh out and explore the details of our plans. Right now is about just sitting with our thoughts and letting them quietly germinate in the soil.

Shiatsu can help keep you get in touch with the seasons and find your own rhythm. With rhythm comes fluidity, of mind and body. Easing of physical symptoms and lightness of thoughts and emotions.

The treatments are intuitive and tailored to the client’s exact needs, whatever they may be. This means you can just relax and know what you need is what you’re going to get. This deep relaxation can generate better energy levels, better sleep patterns and a calmer mind.

Shiatsu can help you connect with what is important to you. It can provide drive and focus to allow resolutions to be followed through and plans to come to fruition.

Shiatsu, in my experience, is beneficial for pain in general. It’s helped clients with joint pain and back pain, digestive and menstrual pain. I have helped clients to gain more mobility and flexibility in their joints, knees, necks, hips.

Shiatsu can help support the physical body and can also help ease mental and emotion strain. Living with physical complaints can affect the mental and emotional balance quite heavily.

So for 2020 how about some space for quiet reflection, regaining one’s balance and taking control of one physical and emotional wellbeing. Bring on the Shiatsu.

Getting started is easy, book in an initial session! We can discuss general health and wellbeing and you get 45 minutes of peaceful and relaxing hands on treatment. At the end I’ll give you an idea of how many sessions, and how regularly, you may need to begin to see a difference.

You can email me at amyhinkswright@yahoo.co.uk or call me or 07791 070837.

If this is the year to make some changes but you’re not sure how then try a Shiatsu.

Shiatsu, Massage, Body-Work and Therapy, Exeter, Devon

So how does Shiatsu fit in as a therapy? Is it a massage? – Well a client once said ‘It’s not like any massage I’ve ever had.’ It does use massage techniques but is always given through clothes, which is an obvious difference to a lot of forms of massage. It is also given on a futon mat on the floor, although can be given on a couch or chair.

Is it a therapy? Although it isn’t a talking therapy, psycho-therapy or counselling it can release held emotions, traumas, stresses and strains from the body.

Is Shiatsu body-work? Most definitely and although it comes at things from a different angle to physiotherapy or sports massage, for instance, it can still help ease pain and increase mobility.

Is Shiatsu energy work? Although it is different to Reiki and other forms of healing it can still help build the levels of energy in the body. Shiatsu can help with the balance of mind and body and spirit.

So what is it? It is an unique form of hands-on therapy that can provide balance in the body. Whether the clients concerns are physical, emotional, mental, spiritual or a bit of all of them, Shiatsu has the ability to re-balance the energy and ease the symptoms. It can be good for aches and pains, for stress and anxiety, for sleep and relaxation.

It is a pretty physical form on therapy, with some great stretches and rotations. Obviously it is only as physical as appropriate for each client. It is a little like Thai or Yoga massage but looks to work the Meridians, lines of energy, that Acupuncture and Acupressure use.

Maybe you have tried various forms of massage and other therapies, Acupuncture, Reflexology for instance. If what you have tried hasn’t scratched your itch as it were, then you may want to try a session on Shiatsu with me.

I am personally interested in providing a space for my clients that is safe, in which they can feel and express in anyway they feel they want to. Clients have their own stories and journeys and generally want to move on, away from physical issues or leaving behind past habits or upsets. I hope to support them to do this by bringing their attention to their bodies, where and how is the body holding trauma and what touch provides relief or release.

I work in Exwick, in Exeter, just behind Exeter St. David’s train station. I offer appointments on most days of the week and I have evening appointments available. I also have pop-up clinics in Exmouth and Dawlish.

This nurturing treatment also leaves the face more relaxed, the tension that we hold in our jaws & around our eyes can be released.  The loose skin on the face can be tighten & strengthen, the treatment smooths & lifts the skin.

A lot of people hold their tension in their neck & shoulders & this massage can ease & release this tension. This Natural Face Lift Massage gets right into that tension, massaging those knots & stretching the neck & shoulders.

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 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
