Shiatsu Massage this Saturday & Sunday – North Devon

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.

Shiatsu Exeter, Dawlish, Exmouth Devon

After a great holiday week – with my boys & the grandparents – I’m ready to get back into giving relaxing, nurturing & healing Shiatsu.

Our holiday was in Cornwall & I really appreciated the clean air, the space to breathe, the beauty & wildness of nature, the quiet, stillness of the remote areas.

I was reminded that as a therapist holding a quiet space is so important. Shiatsu is a safe & secure form of massage that allows the client space to breathe, to connect to how they feel, to feel the stillness that is in all of us. This space can provide relief & release from emotional strain but also physical complaints.

I love being reminded of how special Devon & Cornwall are, how easy it is to connect to nature. I am looking forward to bringing this feeling to my Shiatsu sessions when I get back into it tomorrow.

If you are suffering with back ache, Sciatica, Arthritis, poor circulation, a weak immune system, fatigue, stress, depression, insomnia or other issues then you may like to try a Shiatsu massage.

I have spaces still available for this week in Exwick, Exeter. I have a quiet & peaceful wooden cabin, perfect for these relaxing & therapeutic treatments. Later this month I am in Exmouth & early in May I am back in Dawlish.

Check out my Facebook page for offers & events. You may also like to look at the Shiatsu Society website for further information on Shiatsu.

You can also get in touch through the ‘Contact Me’ page. I’m always happy to discuss Shiatsu.

Have a good week – breathe the air, enjoy the signs of Spring, connect with nature whenever you can.

Shiatsu This Weekend – Exeter, Dawlish, Exmouth, Devon

It is very busy Shiatsu wise at the moment, just the way I like it.  This weekend is no different, I have a Shiatsu surgery tomorrow & I have a new event on Sunday.  Also I have some spaces left in the week before Easter.

I am only able to work some Saturdays so then ones I do work I try to get in as many Shiatsu’s as I can.  Once I have taken into consideration family commitments & my husband working some Saturdays there aren’t so many left.  However I offer as many as I can for those of you tied into a Monday to Friday working week.  Perfect to have a tension-busting, deeply-relaxing, stress-relieving Shiatsu at the end of a long week.  I do also offer early evening appointments on Mondays & Wednesdays.

Then on Sunday I am attending the Holistic Day at the David Lloyd Gym here in Exeter.  All the therapists are offering tasters for £10 & all money is going to charity.  This event is open to members & non-members – some of the appointments are already booked up but there are still some spaces.  The event details can be found here

If you are looking at my page for the first time & want to know more about Shiatsu then have a look at various pages on this site. Also have a look at the Shiatsu Society website for their info.

Have a good weekend whatever you have planned.

Shiatsu musings, Exeter, Dawlish & Exmouth, Devon

I have had a lovely day learning how to give Ginger Compress treatments.  They are an amazing remedy that creates warmth in the body.  The compress warms the kidneys, which are the burners for the body, energising the whole system. They can help alleviate a number of symptoms.

I love learning new skills & catching up with Shiatsu colleagues. Professional development courses are so important, for gaining new skills, but also for bringing new ideas & life to your practice.  I am really looking forward to the Shiatsu treatments I will be giving this week.

I am in Exeter this week but also, on Friday, I have my first pop-up day in Exmouth. I’m really excited about bringing Shiatsu to Exmouth.  Next week, as always I will be in Exeter & I have spaces on Tuesday & Wednesday.  I am also in Dawlish on Friday 23rd & I have spaces at midday & 1pm still available.

Shiatsu is a gentle but powerful form of hands-on therapy. It is suitable for everyone & is tailored to meet the needs of that client at that time.  It can be good for physical aliments as well as emotional & mental stresses & strains. Shiatsu is very relaxing but can also help with energy levels. Shiatsu can aid sleep & help with anxiety, stress & depression.

So a busy week of treatments for me.  I love giving Shiatsu & I’m always happy to discuss it if you have any queries. You can get in touch through the ‘Contact Me’ page.

Have a good week everyone.

Both treatments are incredibly relaxing, they are serious time-out, away from hectic life. They can help with energy levels & aid healthy sleep. They are a serious pamper session.

Shiatsu for Everyone, Exeter, Dawlish & Exmouth, Devon

Shiatsu is a gentle but powerful hands-on therapy that originates from Japan. It is a bit like a massage, using similar techniques to a massage but always given through clothes. Shiatsu is generally given on a futon mat on the floor, but it can be given on a couch or seated if needs be.

Shiatsu can be a very slow & gentle treatment, working one part of the body for a long time, it is nourishing & tonifying. It can be, when appropriate a more active treatment, with stretches & rotations. Clients often comment on how nice it is to have someone stretch them.  The stretches & rotations relieve the tension they feel, often in their neck & shoulder area.

Shiatsu meets clients how they want to me met, which can make it a very satisfying form of therapy.  It is tailored to that client on that day, every Shiatsu is different because of this.

I love giving Shiatsu as is it so adaptable, to each client every time they come.  Also it is a treatment that is suitable for anyone & everyone.  I have given children Shiatsu, they absolutely soak it up. I have also given Shiatsu to whole families, to the parents & the children, it’s a really lovely thing to give Shiatsu to everyone. I have older clients, some of whom need to have their treatment on a couch or massage chair. They have commented on the changes they have experienced from having Shiatsu, that the treatment is very gentle but the benefits are large.

In my experience Shiatsu can be very beneficial for physical issues, accidents, injuries, pain.  It has been found to have long term care & preventative benefits. It can also help with emotional & mental issues & concerns.  It has been shown to help with stress, anxiety & depression.  I have had clients who have come because they are suffering with work-related stress, they have issues in their relationship, they have had a big life change.

Shiatsu has also been found to support deep relaxation, aid healthy sleep & improve energy levels. These three benefits can have big effects on all areas of a life.  Symptoms can ease, mental & emotional strain can be relieved & the body can move with more ease & fluidity.

If you would like to discuss if Shiatsu may be able to help support you then do get in touch through the ‘Contact Me’ page or call me on 07791 070837.  I am always happy to talk Shiatsu.  I practice in Exwick, Exeter every week & in Dawlish every other Friday.  I have pop-up events in Exmouth.

Baby it’s Cold Outside! Shiatsu for warmth, Exeter, Dawlish & Exmouth, Devon

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

Shiatsu for Joint Pain, Exeter, Dawlish & Exmouth, Devon

The longer I practice & the more cases I see the more I believe Shiatsu is really helpful for joint pain. It can be good for any pain, providing some level of pain relief but also supporting the client with the mental strain & tension that comes from dealing with pain.

I have had clients who have come to me because they suffer with pain in their knees, hips, shoulders, wrists & fingers. Clients have mentioned, after their treatment, that their pain is less for some time.

Shiatsu is a gentle hands-on therapy that works to balance the energy in the body.  By holding the joint, or on either side of the joint, Shiatsu can ease the discomfort.  There doesn’t need to be stretches or rotations of the joints to give a result, very gentle massage can really help.  Sometimes it is appropriate to involve stretches & rotations in the treatment, this can loosen a joint, again giving relief from the symptoms.

Shiatsu is a very supportive & nurturing form of therapy & can allow the client to feel  supported.  They don’t feel so alone when coping with the emotional & mental strain of dealing with the pain.  Clients have also mentioned that they feel some of the mental & emotional stress eases, thoughts seems to flow more easily.

Shiatsu can help with energy levels.  It can also provide deep relaxation & can aid healthy sleep patterns. Getting proper relaxation & sleep & feeling more energised can help a client feel better & allow them to make positive changes that may help with their health & any pain they are experiencing.

I love giving Shiatsu & hearing the results from the clients.  I’m also always happy to talk Shiatsu so do get in touch through the’contact me’ page with any questions.

I work in Exeter mostly, in Dawlish every other Friday & I have my first pop-up session of Shiatsu in Exmouth next month. Like my Facebook page for info on events & offers.

 


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.
