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.
Excited to be attending my first event of the year in just a couple of weeks time. I’ll be offering Shiatsu taster sessions at the East Devon Mind, Body, Spirit event on Sunday February 18th. The event is going to be held in Broadclyst, at the Victory Hall. The venue is near for Exeter folks & there is plenty of free parking.
If you have been reading my blog & wondering what Shiatsu is then a taster is a great way to find out what this hands-on therapy involves. The tasters will only be £10 but 20 minutes long, plenty of time to get an idea of Shiatsu.
The Shiatsu tasters will be given on a massage chair, that supports your whole body, its relaxing & comfortable. Normally Shiatsu is given on a futon mat on the floor but can be given on a couch or on a massage chair. Shiatsu is always given through clothes.
Do come & say hello if you are in the area on the 18th. If you are struggling to feel energized in this cold, wet weather then come & get a boost of energy with a Shiatsu taster.
Information about the event and the full list of exhibitors can be seen here
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

I was invited to speak at a local Fibromyalgia group, to talk about Shiatsu & it’s benefits. I had a great time & it became as much a discussion as a talk.
However it reminded me that Shiatsu can be quiet hard to describe – I found myself saying regularly that its a good idea to try Shiatsu rather than only talking about it – I gave tasters at the end of the talk & they were well received.
I am at an event near Exeter next month & will be offering Shiatsu tasters for £10. Tasters are a great way to get an idea of what Shiatsu massage is.

I spent the whole day at a lovely fair in Budleigh Salterton giving tasters of Shiatsu massage today.
Tasters are the perfect way to give people an idea of what a Shiatsu involves, particularly as it’s a very affordable way to get some massage.
Shiatsu is a powerful form of therapy & can have quite an effect in a short period of time.
I really believe in Shiatsu, enough to complete the 3 years of training, so I love letting new people know about it.
There were some great comments from people who had tasters, they felt relaxed but with more energy, their tension had eased dramatically, their pain had eased, they thought it was quite an amazing taster.
A day like this is worth the hassle of trying to get out of the house, endless final kisses for the kids, lunches for everyone ready, everything I need for the day crammed in the car, only having to come back to get one thing I’d forgotten!
I felt so energised from the day that I whizzed through my chores when I got home & had plenty of energy to spend some fun time with my boys.
I hope that the people I treated all went home with the energy to achieve whatever they wanted/ needed to do. Got to love Shiatsu.
This is the next event where I will be offering Shiatsu tasters
It looks like a great event with lots of exhibitors & the focus ipno supporting the community in many different ways.
It’s a family friendly event with lots for kids to do whilst you get a quick but relaxing & revitalizing Shiatsu massage taster!
Maybe see you there & please spread the word.
