Shiatsu Exmouth, Exeter & Dawlish, Devon

Very excited to be heading down to Exmouth tomorrow, for my first pop-up Shiatsu event.  I have attended a few mind, body, spirit fairs in the area & I had so much interest in Shiatsu that really I had to offer it in the town. shiatsu 28.01.2017 048.JPG

I am also looking forward to being at the David Lloyd holistic health day on Sunday 25th March. Another first for me.  This is a fundraiser, the members book in & the money all goes to Cancer Research.

Other that these two new ventures I am offering Shiatsu in Exeter every week as normal.  I absolutely love giving Shiatsu in the ‘Shiatsu Shed’ – a real wood cabin in my garden, in Exwick.  I will be in Dawlish next Friday at the lovely Studio space.img_20180113_1018401537308230.jpg

I also have a Saturday appointment available on Saturday 24th March at 11.45, in Exeter.  Otherwise my next Saturday surgery is on April 28th.

It feels like there is a lot to be happy about at the moment & lots to look forward to.

I’m always happy to talk Shiatsu so do get in touch through the  ‘Contact Me’ page if you have any questions.

April Event, Shiatsu in Devon

North Devon Mind, Body and Soul Festival - Entrance

I’m going to be at the North Devon Mind, Body, Soul event again this year.  I had such a great time last year, the atmosphere was great, there were loads of stalls & tasters & I loved giving loads of Shiatsu’s.

The event is on Saturday 21st & Sunday 22nd April & is held at The Big Sheep, near Bideford. It takes place in a big marquee style venue, with two spaces.  I was really happy with where I was last year, I had the space to offer Shiatsu on a mat on the floor or on a massage chair. Crossing my fingers I am in the same place this year.





If you would like to know more about this event you can go to the Big Sheep website.  You can even book in for a Shiatsu taster with me in advance if you fancy it.

Maybe see some of you lovelies there?


Shiatsu for Pain, Exeter, Dawlish & Exmouth, Devon

For those of you who don’t know Shiatsu is a form of hands-on therapy. It’s a bit like a massage, it uses massage techniques, but it is always given through clothing.  Shiatsu is generally given on a futon mat on the floor but can be given on a couch or massage chair. It is a very relaxing treatment that can also leave a client feeling energised.

Shiatsu is suitable for all & can help with a great number of conditions. It can be helpful for long-term care & can have preventative benefits.  I have had clients who have come for Shiatsu for various physical conditions including back ache, arthritis, hip issues, frozen shoulder, Sciatica & pelvic issues.

Shiatsu can also be helpful for emotional & mental concerns such as stress & anxiety. I have had clients come with issues such as work related stress, relationship breakdown or issues, high levels of anxiety & depression.

Pain is a common issue that people come for Shiatsu for, whether it is due to a recent accident or injury or a more chronic condition.  Clients have found that Shiatsu has helped ease pain levels for some period after a treatment.   Generally the pain relief lasts for longer & longer periods of time, as the client has more sessions.  In my experience Shiatsu seems to have a very positive effect on joint pain, whether that is Arthritis or an injury or another issue.

Clients have often expressed that the mental strain of pain is almost as bad as the actual pain itself.  Particularly if someone has lived with pain for a long period of time it can become an almost unbearable strain. Shiatsu is a very supportive treatment & it can provide comfort to the client, they may feel that they don’t have to manage it completely on their own.  Shiatsu can also help with energy levels & with a little more energy a client may feel they have the resources to be able to make changes & not feel that the pain is in control of them.

I love giving Shiatsu & hearing, from clients, about the positive effects it has for them.  If you would like to hear about events & offers then please like my Facebook page.  If you have any questions then do get in touch through the Contact Me page.



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.

Mother’s Day Shiatsu & Massage, Exeter, Devon

Shiatsu or Natural Face Lift Massage is a perfect way to say thank you to your caring & hard-working mum, step mum, mother in law, or wife. 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.

I offer gift vouchers for Shiatsu & Natural Face Lift Massage & can arrange to get them to you, or your mother, in time for Sunday.  I have already hand delivered gift vouchers this week, in the Exeter area, so that they are ready to be opened on Sunday.

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 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.
