I first came across Shiatsu massage a long time ago when I was growing up, here in Devon. A family friend was training in Shiatsu at the time & used me as a practise client. She lived down a long & very bumpy farm track, you couldn’t drive your car down unless it was a 4×4. I would walk down & back up again. If I’d had Shiatsu I could run up the track if I hadn’t it was a slow & quiet painful process to climb back up.
I was sold on Shiatsu from then on & continued to have it at different times in my life. It has helped me feel more focussed & make changes in my life. It has helped me with physical injury & it’s helped me move on from a difficult break up.
Finally I got around to completing my Shiatsu training, after returning to Devon, & have been qualified for 7 years. The Shiatsu diploma is an intense 3 year course, which I completed at the Devon School of Shiatsu. Since qualifying I have continued to offer Shiatsu regularly & complete regular professional development, deepening my Shiatsu practice.
I have worked in many different environments in my professional life including advisory work & mentoring & developing work. In have learnt to actively listen, be open & willing to support others. I believe this allows me to offer an open & safe space to clients. Along with a strong connected touch that feels nurturing & supportive.
I offer Shiatsu in both Exeter & Dawlish. I have a quiet practice room in Exeter & work in the lovely Changes Now Centre in Dawlish.
