Shiatsu tasters tomorrow – Exeter, Devon

So this is tomorrow – Shiatsu taster sessions alongside other therapists, readings, stalls & a great cafe.

It’s in Broadclyst, very close to Exeter – free parking & lots of stuff to check out.

Come & say hi xx


Shiatsu Massage tasters this Sunday, Exeter, Devon

I’m going to be giving tasters of Shiatsu at an event on Sunday. It’s being held at the Victory Hall, in Broadclyst & they’ll be lots of other therapists offering tasters & plenty of stalls to browse.

Tasters are a really good, & affordable, way to get an idea of what a Shiatsu involves, what it feels like to have, what effect it can have.

Broadclyst isn’t far from Exeter, where I practice Shiatsu. It is easy to find the hall & there is plenty of free parking nearby.

The event is on from 10.30 until 4.30. Details of the event can be found here

Shiatsu & Well-being – Exeter & Dawlish, Devon

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.

Shiatsu on Sunday, Exeter, Devon

This Sunday I will be giving Shiatsu massage tasters at the East Devon Mind, Body, Spirit Network Fair, in Broadclyst, near Exeter.

I love giving Shiatsu tasters, they are a great way to get a feel of what a Shiatsu involves.

The Shiatsu tasters will be given on a massage chair, rather than on a futon mat on the floor, which is generally how Shiatsu is given.

The tasters are affordable at just £10 but are plenty long enough to get a good idea of what a Shiatsu is & what I am like, as a therapist.

Even a short Shiatsu can have a positive effect, helping with energy levels, relaxation & aiding sleep.

Previously people have come to me for chronic pain, sciatica, work-stress, joint pain, emotional upheaval & depression.

There is time, within a taster, to discuss how Shiatsu maybe able to help support any complaints you have.

Details of the event can be found here

Shiatsu over Half-Term – Exeter, Devon

It’s been a busy Shiatsu week this week, both in Exeter & Dawlish.  I have enjoyed working in The Studio, the new space down in Dawlish.  I also enjoyed working in the real-wood cabin in my garden, fondly nicknamed the ‘Shiatsu Shed.’ I’m lucky to have such lovely spaces to work in.

Next week is half-term & my husband has the whole week off, so a chance to get some quality family time. However I am not officially on holiday so I have some spaces for Shiatsu or Natural Face Lift Massage available.

Then on Sunday 18th February, the last Sunday of half-term I am at an event in Broadclyst.  I’ll be giving Shiatsu tasters in my new massage chair. I am super excited about the chair, yes it doesn’t take much I know! My new chair is a hardly used top-end chair,  should make the tasters even more comfortable & relaxing.  Plus there will be other therapists giving tasters & lots of stalls to browse.

So I will be having some down time, some family time, but also looking forward to having a little bit of work throughout the week too.  Have a good week, whatever you plans are. xx

Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us & I am offering 10% off any gift vouchers bought before the 14th February, for a Valentine. These vouchers can be used for Shiatsu or a Natural Face Lift Massage.

Shiatsu is a form of hands-on therapy that can leave the client feeling relaxed, improve their energy levels & alleviate stress & tension.  It is like a massage but is given through clothes.  It is given on a futon mat, on the floor, but can be given on a couch or seated.  It works by balancing the energy in the body, relieving symptoms & relaxing the body & mind.FB_IMG_1485985147178

Natural Face Lift massage is a mixture of Japanese & Indian face massage.  It includes Shiatsu pressure points & works the neck & shoulders as well as the face.  It has a really deep relaxing affect on the whole body & is a great pampering treatment.shiatsu 28.01.2017 062

I absolutely love how relaxed & chilled people are when they leave after a treatment & is a great present for someone you care about.

Sending love out to you all! x

It is so cold again, at the moment, this is a chance to get a serious warm-up. A chance to drop all your responsibilities for 20 minutes & to lose some tension & stress. Shiatsu is deeply relaxing, it helps aid sleep & can help with energy levels. Just a short taster of Shiatsu can set you up to get through this cold weather.

I’m always happy to talk Shiatsu so do get in touch through the ‘contact me’ page if you have any queries.

Shiatsu for Friends & Family – Exeter & Dawlish, Devon

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
