Shiatsu is a gentle form of hands-on therapy. It is based in Traditional Chinese Medicine & uses the same pressure points & Meridians (lines of energy) as Acupucture. It uses the 5 Element diagnosis system, an Eastern, holistic form of understanding the body, mind & spirit.
Shiatsu also uses touch as a form of diagnosis, the practioner follows what they feel, or what they pick up, as they move around the body. Shiatsu is always tailored to that client, on that day, so every treatment is different. It can be a quiet & holding treatment &, when appropriate, it can be a more physical & energetic treatment.
Because of its approach Shiatsu is a very supportive therapy & can help with well-being & energy levels. It meets the client how & where they want to be met, it can meet them on a physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual level. Shiatsu works to balance the energy in the body, when there is balance there can be relief from symptoms & a sense of wellness.
I am offering tasters at an event on Sunday – a good opportunity to try this relaxing yet energising therapy out. The event is in Broadclyst, near Exeter, from 10.30 till 4.30. More details can be found on my Facebook page.
So very excited to receive a large parcel in the post today.
I was pretty upset when my trusty, but bottom of the range, massage chair broke just before Christmas. I was in the middle of a session of Shiatsus for the hard working staff at my son’s school. I had to give some of the Shiatsus to people whilst they sat on a normal chair. Hardly relaxing, having to support yourself, rather than leaning into a comfy chair.
Since the breakage I have been searching for a replacement. I was close to purchasing a replacement of similar quality to my original when I stumbled across a hardly used, top of the range chair.
I am super happy & have tried it out on my family already. It’s really comfy & easily adjusts to fit any shape or size of client.
So watch out for upcoming events as I will now be giving Shiatsu on this beauty of a chair.
My next event is in Broadclyst, near Exeter – details can be found here

Shiatsu is a relaxing but energising treatment. It is a hands on therapy given through clothes & on a futon mat on the floor. Although it can be given on a chair or couch if it maybe difficult to get down or back up from the floor.
Shiatsu is an all over body treatment, it can be focused specially on one area of the body. Similarly the whole body can be treated from one area. Each treatment is specially tailored to that person on that day. Every Shiatsu is different.Shiatsu massage uses the same points & meridians, lines of energy, that acupuncture uses. Shiatsu looks to balance the energy in body. This balance can ease pain, symptoms & provide support.
Clients have mentioned that they feel more energy after a treatment, that they feel more focussed & have more drive, that they have had relief from symptoms, that they have slept better, needed the loo less, had better joint flexibility.Shiatsu is a safe & secure environment & is totally confidential. It can help support emotional distress, stress, anxiety & depression. I have clients who have come with work related stress & also people who are going through big changes in their personal lives.I work in Exwick, Exeter & Dawlish & I’m also happy to discuss Shiatsu so do get in touch with any questions, through the ‘contact me’page.
I am now officially on holiday, again! I’m taking another week away from Shiatsu massage, to coincide with the kids school holidays.
I am back week commencing 28th August. I’m in Dawlish on the 29th & do have some space. I have some space in Exeter on 30th, later in the day.

Shiatsu is a gentle but powerful hands-on therapy that is suitable for all & can be beneficial for many complaints, physical, mental or emotional.
One of the common complaints that people come to me for Shiatsu massage for is back pain. Often but not always it is lower back pain but sometimes it is middle back pain or neck & upper back pain. Shiatsu massage can be very successful at relieving pain in the back.
Shiatsu works to balance the energies in the body, using meridians, lines of energy & pressure points, the same points that are used in Acupuncture. The meridians & points in the back are really effective & results can often be seen quickly when it comes to back pain. Sometimes the relief only lasts for a short period & then a few treatments quite close together, weekly or fortnightly, can be benefical. The period of relief from symptoms will hopefully extend further after each Shiatsu.
If the back pain is due to an injury or accident & it is uncomfortable to massage directly on the area then it is possible to work it from a distance. As the meridians that Shiatsu uses run across the whole body it is possible to treat one area from a different part of the body. This can help to avoid aggrivation of a complaint.
It is a really good idea to get treatment for an injury or complaint as quickly as possible. There is more of a chance or remedying it quickly. Shiatsu is also helpful for chronic & long-term complaints, particularly chronic back pain.

Shiatsu is a gentle but powerful form of massage therapy. It is gentle & supportive, nurturing & kind. This makes it perfect to help recovery. I have had clients who have come for Shiatsu as they have had an operation, I have clients who have come because they have had an accident.
● It is ideal if Shiatsu is given soon after the event, there is less of a chance of the condition becoming chronic & causing issues for a long time
● Shiatsu works to balance the energy in the body, this brings relief from symptoms & can help not only the body but can allow the client to feel & work through the emotions attached to the operation or accident
● It doesn’t have to be given directly on the area that has the injury. Another area of the body can be massaged & still be affecting the injury
● Shiatsu massage is a strong & supportive connection. This gives the body, mind & soul space to feel & react, to change & remedy
● It can be a physical massage where appropriate & can relieve tension, knots & tightness giving a sense of release & relief
Shiatsu can also work well on chronic pain & conditions. It gets the flow of energy going in the body, re-awakening, releasing long held tensions.

Shiatsu can be really good for supporting injuries, from accidents, falls, car accidents for Instance. Shiatsu is a form of massage therapy that has many different techniques, allowing the injury to be treated in a lot of different ways. It is possible to treat directly on the injury, with gentle general or specific pressure. When this is not appropriate work can be done either side of the injury, bringing focus, energy & healing through the injury. Similarly distal work can be used, points relating to but a way away from the affected area can be worked.
If an injury has been sustained it is good to have Shiatsu massage as soon as possible afterwards. The quicker the injury is worked on the more likely it is to be eased. As time passes injuries become chronic & then it can take longer to see results. It is totally possible to work on chronic issues & our bodies hold a physical memory of what has happened to us I our lives.
I have had clients who have come for Shiatsu massage as they have injuries sustained by a fall. I have had clients come for a frozen shoulder, due to strenuous work. Clients have injuries to their backs, due to the type of work they do. I have used different techniques to support these clients & have seen positive results.
