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 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

Shiatsu Event – Exeter, Devon

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.

Natural Face Lift Massage – Exeter & Dawlish, Devon

I had a really good week last week with all my case study appointments for Natural Face Lift Massage treatments filled.

I am only offering this deal for January & have just a couple of spaces left for appointments on this Tuesday.

The face massage is so deeply relaxing, it affects the whole body & is great me-time.

Do have a look at my Facebook Page & message me for more information.

Shiatsu Support – Exeter & Dawlish, Devon

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

Sunshine & Shiatsu – Exeter, Devon

What a lovely morning today, here in Exeter (shame about the really rotten, wet, windy & cold afternoon.)

The sun shone down on the wooden cabin & streamed in through the windows.

The birds came out & enjoyed themselves, just outside the shed window. They were chirping & twittering, eating the seeds we had put out for them & hopping around to get the ones that had dropped to the floor.

It was a really joy giving treatments this morning. The shed was warm & cosy & listening to the birds was perfect.

I gave Natural Face Lift massages today, & again I was impressed with the change in the clients faces after the treatment.

I enjoy giving these massages, I always slip some Shiatsu into the treatment. The points used on the face are Shiatsu points & also I get a sense of the whole body when just working the head, neck & shoulders.

What a pleasure giving such relaxing & nurturing treatments in such a perfect atmosphere. I definitely felt lucky that I do what I do!

Fancy giving Shiatsu a try? Exeter & Dawlish, Devon

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.
