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.
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.
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.
If you are interested in finding out more about Shiatsu then have a look at the pages on here. I have a Facebook page where I post details of events & offers. You may also want to check out the Shiatsu Society website for more information on Shiatsu.
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
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.
What a lovely morning today, here in Exeter (shame about the really rotten, wet, windy & cold afternoon.)
The sun shone down on the wooden cabin & streamed in through the windows.
The birds came out & enjoyed themselves, just outside the shed window. They were chirping & twittering, eating the seeds we had put out for them & hopping around to get the ones that had dropped to the floor.
It was a really joy giving treatments this morning. The shed was warm & cosy & listening to the birds was perfect.
I gave Natural Face Lift massages today, & again I was impressed with the change in the clients faces after the treatment.
I enjoy giving these massages, I always slip some Shiatsu into the treatment. The points used on the face are Shiatsu points & also I get a sense of the whole body when just working the head, neck & shoulders.
What a pleasure giving such relaxing & nurturing treatments in such a perfect atmosphere. I definitely felt lucky that I do what I do!
Right now I am still offering Natural Face Lift massage treatments for just £10. This offer is going to head at the end of January though so not much time left to book.
I am offering case study treatments, I still need to check my notes now & again & I want to be confident the massage is of good quality. Once I’ve practiced enough these treatments will be £22 for 30mins or £40 for an hour.
The massage is so relaxing, the whole body feels the benefit. Clients have said their face feels tighter, bit more relaxed, that their eyes are wider & that their neck feels looser.
The massage involves Shiatsu points & Japanese & Indian face massage techniques. I use Grapeseed oil in the treatment.
If you’d like to know more or would like to book do call on 07791 070837 other in touch through the ‘contact me’ page.
So Shiatsu massages are, from now on, in the ‘Shiatsu Shed’ in my back garden. It’s a beautiful wooden cabin & perfect for rest & relaxation.
I am in Dawlish every other week & these treatments will be taking place in The Studio, which is a tranquil & peaceful space with a stream right outside, providing the perfect background music.
I have various other plans in the pipeline – events coming up from next month, offering Shiatsu in other towns in Devon, working in businesses, offer Natural Face Lift massage in salons in Exeter – ok maybe not all of them will come off but exciting opportunities around.
I now work Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays & some Saturday mornings. I can also offer evening appointments. I’m always happy to discuss Shiatsu so do get in touch through the ‘contact me’ page.
I woke in the early hours of this morning with a start. For a long time Christmas had taken up all my brain power & now suddenly, in the middle of the night, I’d switched to thinking about the new year. Ideas spinning in my head about what I’d like to acheive in 2018, for myself & my family.
The new year is a good opportunity to focus on the things that are important to us & on what we would like to acheive. It is not always easy to organise our thoughts, or to keep our initial focus & drive up. Our energy is often lower in the colder winter months & this can stop us keeping our goals in sight.
Shiatsu massage sees symptoms like clarity of thought, lack of energy, inability to follow through with ideas, dis-organisation & tiredness as energetic imbalances. Shiatsu looks to balance the energies in the body & this can ease symptoms such as the above.
Shiatsu massage is:
- A quiet, supportive space
- A good energy boost
- Helpful for encouraging deeper sleep
Clients have mentioned:
- A sense of focus & determination after a treatment
- An ability to acheive things with ease
I believe Shiatsu is the perfect support for clients looking to make changes in their lives. To help clients keep focus, drive & momentum. Shiatsu can help support stress & anxiety, which can hold us up.
How do I feel today? Excited about the new year, determined to push through with my personal goals (although already a little apprehensive about keeping them up.) Yes I know better book myself a Shiatsu! I love giving Shiatsu so hoping there’s a lot of that in 2018.
I offer Shiatsu in Exeter & Dawlish. I practice Shiatsu in a wooden cabin in the garden of our home in Exwick, Exeter, the natural wood is perfect for this form of therapy. I work in the lovely Changes Now in Dawlish. Both places are easy to get to by car, bus or train.
Wishing you all a positive, happy & productive 2018. May your dreams be bright & beautiful & come true with splendour.
