I have a practice in North Finchley.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been a qualified Shiatsu Practitioner since 1986. I was a founder and co-director of Ki Kai Shiatsu Centre, and am now a senior teacher at Morley Colleges professional Shiatsu training course in Lambeth.
I have studied Qi Gong with Sifu Lam Kam Chuen, and also Dr Liu of Beijing hospital.
For the last 25 years I have been the Shiatsu practitioner for Turning Point in Westminster, working with people with alcohol and drug problems.
I also have a private practice in North Finchley.
I charge £50 for a shiatsu treatment. Concessions are available.
My involvement with complementary therapies started back in 1984 when I began studying Tai Chi at my local Adult Education Centre.
In 1986 I attended a Shiatsu Introductory day with the late Chris Jarmey. His clarity and enthusiasm for the subject and the concepts he was talking about all seemed to make total sense and I enrolled on the new practitioner training course he was setting up.
I qualified with the Shiatsu Society as a practitioner in 1988.
In the early 90's I became a co-founder and director of Ki Kai Shiatsu Centre in North London. Over the next 20 years we taught Shiatsu to hundreds of students, pioneered work with Shiatsu in the treatment of substance abuse and were instrumental in the integration of Shiatsu into the voluntary sector.
In 2008 we transferred the school to be part of Morley College in Lambeth, where we now offer a three year professional training in Shiatsu and Oriental Medicine. I have continued my role as a senior teacher on this course.
For the last 25 years, besides my teaching and private practice, I have been employed by the charity Turning Point in Westminster, to give Shiatsu treatments to people with drug and alcohol problems.
Over the last 30 years I have seen Shiatsu have a profound and positive effect on hundreds of people. It is indeed a wonderful therapy and my passion for it is as great now as when I first started on my studies.
