About me

Alice Dellow Shiatsu Practitioner, BA(Hons), Dip. Bss-Do, MRSS

I qualified as a Shiatsu-Do practitioner at the British School of Shiatsu-Do, and am a registered member of the Shiatsu Society (MRSS).

After years of searching for a therapy that would help with pain relief for a longterm condition, I was first introduced to Shiatsu-Do in 2003 and was so impressed by the physical and emotional health benefits, that I gave up my job as an event manager and re-trained for nearly four years to become a fully qualified Shiatsu-Do practitioner.

The way Shiatsu unwinds the body's manifestation of somatic symptoms from psychological and / or physical trauma or stress means that Shiatsu-Do practitioners are able to treat all kinds of dis-ease in the body with extraordinary results.

I have studied Zen Shiatsu, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and the Five Element Theory of Shiatsu, as well as specialising in more focused areas such as Pregnancy, (including pre and post birth, and working with partners), fascial release, structural re-alignment, joint mobilisation and core energetics.

With an impeccable reputation amongst my clients and, having treated people with a wide variety of conditions, the success of my practice lies with an intuitive ability to identify with a client's core imbalances and choose the appropriate techniques to treat with from a metaphorical toolbox of skills.

Training, qualifications & experience

Alice Dellow - BA(Hons), Dip. Bss-Do, MRSS

I have seen the most incredible results through Shiatsu, results that have left me amazed at the power of the human body.  It is a privilege to witness how different we all are, and to be able to work with each body in its own timescale; using techniques that work specifically to its' own energetic mechanisms.  The method in which a Shiatsu practitioner will listen to your body and interpret it's condition through palpating the meridian channels is paramount to the success of the treatment. But really, it is your body that does the work! Shiatsu treats the cause of the symptoms thereby ensuring that the body is learning to change its habits and make the positive changes required for the healing process to begin.

Shiatsu is an incredible tool for children because they do not need to verbalise something they do not understand. Children respond quickly and effectively to Shiatsu treatment. A parent or guardian, (with parental permission) must be present during the whole treatment.

If you have been diagnosed with or suspect you may have a pre-existing medical condition you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies, treatments or making any major changes in your diet or exercise programme.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a therapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the therapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

There are two steps but wheelchairs have accessed the premises many times. Also, I will set up downstairs if you are a wheelchair user.
