What does a Shiatsu involve? Exeter & Dawlish, Devon

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.

September Shiatsu – Exeter & Dawlish, Devon 

So this month started with a great Shiatsu event – a colleague & myself gave lots of Shiatsu massage tasters at the Exeter Green Fair on Saturday. It’s always an interesting event, with lots of thought provoking stalls, & is set up right on the cathedral green in Exeter city centre. 

The following day I was supposed to be giving Shiatsu at the St. Thomas Festival, also in Exeter. The weather was ridiculously English, with heavy rain, wind & low temperatures all day. It was not a day that anyone would hang around for a massage so I chose not to attend. Sad as I have attended a lot of years of this great community event. 

These two events signify the end of the Summer & the beginning of the Autumn for me. We are on full back to school mode in this house & I’m starting to focus on work a bit more again. It’s hard to multi-task work & the school holidays & I am looking forward to some time to focus specifically on work.

I am also excited as my youngest son will go to pre-school more & I will be offering more availability – Tuesday afternoons to begin with & in time Friday morning’s. I will still offer Wednesday appointments including early evening appointments.

The new found focus has also affected my husband & I’s drive to get the ‘Shiatsu Shed’ finished & I hope that I will be offering Shiatsu in the solid wood cabin in our garden in the next month – watch this space.

I am always happy to talk Shiatsu so do get in touch through the ‘contact me’ page or call me on 07791 070837

Shiatsu Holidays – Exeter & Dawlish, Devon 

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. 

Shiatsu For Back Issues, Exeter & Dawlish, Devon 

Well we have survived a few days camping, four kids, four adults, wet weather at times, late nights, early mornings & lots of fun. Sleeping on air beds, being busy a lot of the time, packing & unpacking & lugging lots of heavy stuff around definitely takes a toll on your back. 

It really reminded me how hard our backs work & how painful they are when these is an issue. I would say that the most common complaint people come to me with, to have Shiatsu massage, is back pain. Often it is the lower back that is causing problems but sometimes it is the mid or higher back where the pain is. 

Shiatsu can really help support back issues, whether they are chronic or a recent injury. The quicker after an injury that treatment is sought the better. Clients witb chronic back issues can really get a good amount of relief too though. 

There are many different techniques that are used in Shiatsu massage & this makes it very versatile & if one technique is not working so well there are different approaches.

Shiatsu for tension & stress, Exeter & Dawlish, Devon

Shiatsu can be great at relieving tension & stress in the body. As it is given, generally, on a futon mat on the floor & always through clothes it can be quite a physical form of massage therapy. There can be, when appropriate, great stretches & rotation of limbs & joints, relieving tensions held by the body. Shiatsu is also given when the client is in various positions, including on their side, this allows the shoulders to be worked on & areas of the body to be early focussed on. 

Shiatsu works on many different levels, physical, mental, spiritual & emotional. The body holds a physical memory of our lives, stresses & strains. Sometimes the tension is relieved by working with the emotional connection to it or the mental strain that has helped cause the tension. This working on different levels can sometimes unlock tension & stress in the body when a solely physical approach is not enough.

Shiatsu massage is also a gentle form of hands-on therapy. It can help release tension in more delicate areas, such as the neck. Shiatsu works with the the quiet areas of the body, the areas where there isn’t much energy, sometimes these are the weaker areas. By working these areas first the body can be more responsive when working the areas where the tension is held. Shiatsu massage aims to balance the body & when this begins to happen the weaker areas can feel stronger & the tight areas can feel more relaxed.

Any questions you have please get in tiuch through the ‘contact me’ page. I’m always happy to talk Shiatsu. 

Shiatsu Massage for Hips, Exeter, Dawlish, Devon 

Shiatsu massage can be helpful on many different levels, emotional, mental, spiritual & physical. I have found that it has given clients relief from issues with joints, particularly with hips. Shiatsu can be quite physically manipulative, which can work well for hip joints, as they are so large. Ir can also be very gentle when required & still have good results. 

Shiatsu massage has been able to give relief from Sciatica to some of my clients. It has helped with tight hips & stiffness. It has become clear with some clients that they hold emotional tension in their pelvic area & this has released for them.

Please get in touch, through the ‘contact me’ page,  if you have any questions or if you would like to discuss if Shiatsu maybe able to help you.
