I am a Shiatsu Practitioner offering sessions at BoCo Yoga & Pilates and home visits in the Surbiton and Kingston area.
Shiatsu is a Japanese/Chinese finger pressure art and healing practice.
Shiatsu works with principles and theories of the thousands of years old Traditional Chinese Medicine and the use of Ki to heal the body, mind and soul.
Ki as the life energy flows within the body. The flow of it is especially heightened in pathways called Meridians. Shiatsu practitioners work with Ki and heal through bringing the flow of Ki within the Meridians in balance. The practise consists of pressure with hand palm and finger pressure as well as joint rotations and stretches.
A Shiatsu treatment typically lasts around 75 minutes with a brief catch up about your health before the start. The first treatment can be up to 90 minutes as we will discuss your health and the reason for you booking in greater detail. Shiatsu is a full body therapy that is practiced on a futon on the floor with a lot of cushions to ensure your comfort.
Training, qualifications & experience
In my 3 year Zen Shiatsu Training I have learned a vast amount about the human body, the use of Ki, Chinese medicine, the origins of Shiatsu, Meridians, Acupuncture points and more about myself. Having received Shiatsu for so many years I find that giving Shiatsu can be even better and it is such a joy to give Shiatsu. The success and change in receivers that one can achieve with Ki, mindfulness and intension is fascinating.
Mental health has been close to my heart for a long time. I myself have experience what a big difference regular Shiatsu can make to a mind that is spinning. Therefore I am now also working to get Shiatsu known in the Mental Health society starting with introduction workshops and I gave Shiatsu on a volunteering basis at a Mental Health Charity.
