About Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a hands-on therapy that originates from Japan.  Literally translated Shiatsu means ‘finger pressure’ & although there is a lot of finger & thumb pressure there are also a number of other techniques used, including stretching & rotation. Shiatsu is given on a futon mat on the floor & the client is fully clothed.  This allows it to be a physical treatment when appropriate.  The aim is to balance the energies within the body to give a sense of alignment & flexibility, flow & rhythm.

You may like to go to the Shiatsu society website for the information they have about Shiatsu.


A session is an hour long which includes a short consultation with at least 40 minutes of hands-on treatment.  It is best not to eat a large meal in the couple of hours before a treatment & to wear comfortable clothing.


A session costs £35
