The Shiatsu Shed, Exeter, Devon

I blogged recently about the special treatment space I have in Exeter. We have put up a wooden cabin in the garden & it is the perfect haven away from daily life. It is a sanctuary of calm where it is easy to relax, rest & just be.

Today the sun is shining & the apple blossom is starting to come out so I took some new photos of the Shiatsu Shed.

It’s a very special place to practice Shiatsu, it is solid wood & we have used natural materials as much as possible. It is a little piece of quiet yet close to Exeter city centre & the main train station.

I work most days of the week in the Shiatsu Shed. I offer evening & Saturday appointments. I also work in Dawlish & Exmouth.

Shiatsu for Sleep issues, Exeter, Devon

If you suffer from fatigue, insomnia, or any sleep or energy related issues you may want to try Shiatsu. This gentle but powerful hands-on therapy looks to balance the energy in the body, to re-balance the body.  When the body is in balance sleep can come more easily, energy levels can be higher & the body clock is more settled.

There are a number of things that are worth trying if you suffer with sleep or energy levels. There are the more obvious things; cutting out caffeine, cutting down on sugar & alcohol, eating earlier in the evening, staying away from screens near to bed time.

Shiatsu is based in Traditional Chinese Medicine. (TCM) This provides further suggestions that may be of help; meditation, eating fish & sea vegetables, sitting & stillness, some cardio exercise.  It is possible to give individual lifestyle & exercise recommendations as part of a session of Shiatsu.

Shiatsu may be able to help. A session is an hour with at least 45 minutes of hands-on work. At the very least Shiatsu provides a space away from daily life, it is a chance to relax, or at least feel how that may feel! It is deeply relaxing & allows the body & mind to rest but it is also energizing & can leave the client with higher energy levels.

Shiatsu is also a very supportive & confidential space where it is completely OK to feel how you feel & be how you want to be. This can provide a sense of relief & release alongside a sense of being held & supported.

Clients have mentioned that they have felt a buzz after a treatment that has lasted for sometime.  They have had deeper sleep than normal, they have change the times that they wake, they have woken less regularly.  They have felt less fatigue & mental strain.  They have felt mentally able to manage their situation more, make changes or achieve what they would like to with ease.

I’m always happy to talk Shiatsu so do get in touch with any questions or queries, if you would like to know more or would like to discuss if Shiatsu may be able to help you.

I work in Exwick, Exeter & also in Dawlish & Exmouth. I offer appointments most days, some evening & Saturday appointments.

Modern Day Priorities, Shiatsu in Devon

Down here in Exeter, Devon we have had a strong reminder of modern day priorities.  A new IKEA has opened in the town & boy do we know about it.  The build up has been immense, & the hype has been unbelievable. IKEA were able to show films inside, the general very sacred, Exeter Cathedral, they have put furniture on the high street & rowed a viking long boat down the river Exe.  You can’t say their publicity hasn’t been top notch. Local press have been advising people to plan their journeys as the traffic to IKEA is going to cause delays!

Over the past few days I have found myself repeating ‘it is only a shop’ a lot. It has been a strong reminder of the values we seem to have in this society, we value the ability to purchase products, particularly at a reasonable price with some style it seems.

This blog isn’t a rant it is an expression of the sadness I feel with the loss of contact with nature & the world around us. Also the lack of value of our inner world, the peace & calm we can find within. Generally our society doesn’t value self-care & support much either.  We are always on the move, with something to get done or somewhere to be, no time to rest, just be, meditate or take care of ourselves.

The people that I meet who are most at peace with themselves aren’t thinking about when they can next go shopping.  These people are giving space & time to themselves. I treat a couple of therapists who use Shiatsu as a support tool for their own healing & development.

Shiatsu allows me to reconnect to what is important to me & to be quiet & still for a time.  In a Shiatsu session I create a space that is quiet & still & allows the client to just be, to rest & to heal. The space can create time away from modern day expectations & demands, stresses & strains. A chance to get back to what our personal priorities are.

Shiatsu this May, Exeter, Dawlish, Exmouth – Devon

What beautiful weather we have had down here in Devon, this bank holiday. Although it feels quite an adjustment, getting used to this bright sunshine & high temperatures, it has made it much easier to enjoy the last couple of days.

After a very busy few weeks I have enjoyed kicking back, with the kids & my husband. I love it when we drop into our family rhythm, enjoying each others company & following whatever take our interest. For instance we spent a long time looking at a large number of hairy caterpillar hatchlings, all over the hand rails & bins by the beach.

I feel nurtured by the nature that surrounds us in Devon, the sub on my skin, the waves crashing, the light through tree branches.

I am starting to feel renewed & revitalised & ready to give out some healing & nurture. I’m back giving Shiatsu from Tuesday & I’m in Exeter this week. I have spaces on Wednesday & Friday.

I am in Exmouth on Friday 25th – there is only one space left on this day so do get in touch if you would like to book. I’m back in Dawlish on 1st June so not quite this month.

I’m looking forward to getting back into it – I love giving Shiatsu & supporting people with their healing.

Healing Shiatsu – Exeter, Dawlish, Exmouth – Devon

April has been a really busy month for me & my family.  I have given lots & lots of Shiatsu, which is great.  There has been lots of catching up with friends & family & time with my husband & kids. We have had visitors, been away & had bugs come home from school.

Along with all this I have been able to get a few treatments for myself.  As a therapist it is quite easy to forget how important it is to get support for yourself. One of my resolutions this year is to get at least a treatment a month & always get a treatment when I do an event.

Having Shiatsu or other therapies also helps with your own practice.  As I peel back the layers of my own healing journey I feel I am better placed to support others with their healing. I have learnt a lot about myself since I started giving Shiatsu & it feels that this last month has shown me some really important lessons.

Wow after the last crazy month I am so looking forward to this bank holiday three day weekend. It’s just me, my husband & our boys, we have very few plans & no obligations. As a family we need some down time & personally I need some rest time.

I know that this rest will put me in the perfect place for giving healing & nurturing treatments when I get back to work on Tuesday. I am very much looking forward to bringing the lessons & understandings, I have experienced recently, to my therapy sessions in the coming weeks.

I am back to work in Exeter this week.  I do have some spaces on Tuesday, Wednesday evening & Friday, if you are interested in using Shiatsu as a space to continue your own healing journey.

Until then have a great bank holiday weekend. I’m off to chill, relax, enjoy nature, rest & refresh.  See you on the other side.

Shiatsu for Stress & Anxiety – in Exeter, Dawlish & Exmouth, Devon

Shiatsu is a very supportive & nurturing form of hands-on therapy so can really help support a client suffering from Stress, Anxiety, Depression or other mental strain.

As Shiatsu is a hands-on therapy it approaches the situation from a different angle to ‘talking therapies.’ Our bodies hold our stresses & strains, whether physical, mental or emotional. Rather than talking through their concerns a client can relax & feel how they feel.  Physically working the body can lead to emotional release & relief, that maybe harder to come by through talking or discussion.

Shiatsu provides a safe & open environment that allows a client to relax & just be.  There are no expectations or demands. The space is held for the client to explore how they feel, to the extent that they feel happy to.

I offer Shiatsu in Exwick, Exeter, where I have a wooden cabin in the garden.  Every other Friday I work in Dawlish at a lovely space called The Studio.  Then once a month I work at The Sol Shop Treatment Rooms in Exmouth. I work most days of the week now although I still look after my youngest son & do the school run.  I have some evening appointments available & I work some Saturdays.

Do have a look at my Facebook page. You may want to like the page to keep up to date with offers & events.

Enjoy the bank holiday weekend, whatever your plans. Do get in touch through the ‘Contact Me’ page if you would like to discuss if Shiatsu maybe for you.

Natural Face Lift Massage, Exeter, Devon

I have been promoting my Shiatsu practice a lot recently however I also offer Natural Face Lift Massage.  This massage is incredibly relaxing & pampering. It is a face, scalp, shoulder & neck massage that uses Shiatsu points on the face & Indian & Japanese massage techniques.

This nurturing treatment also leaves the face more relaxed, the tension that we hold in our jaws & around our eyes can be released.  The loose skin on the face can be tighten & strengthen, the treatment smooths & lifts the skin.
