About me

Hello, I'm Norma, I am qualified in Shiatsu Therapy-Massage and an Advanced Reiki Practitioner. I currently see clients suffering from a variety of problems, and enjoy working with them to make better health changes and choices.

I became passionate about therapy and the benefits after receiving Reiki for stress and anxiety over 17 years ago. I have developed a keen interest in the body and how it works/functions. As my journey continues I have a fascination for Oriental Medicine - after all, our health is the most important thing we have.

My treatment objective is to treat the whole person with an aim to help bring balance and harmony. Shiatsu has a very calming effect and is very effective in counteracting stress and all the conditions associated with stress. Benefits include, improve posture, circulation and restored energy.

Similar to acupuncture, Shiatsu focuses on balancing the body’s energy.

The routine involves the use of acupressure points, stretches, and massage techniques. It is a vitalising and uplifting experience. The sequence promotes a sense of wellbeing because muscles relax, blood circulation is increased and nerve responses are stimulated and through body.

Shiatsu is a form of massage, carried out whilst fully clothed and without the use of oils. This is an effective treatment that can take place in as little as 15 minutes. It is a fantastic way to relieve tense, aching or cramped muscles in the neck, shoulders, arms and back and to help release any physical or emotional tension.

If you'd like to know more or to book a session, please get in touch.

Further information

Shiatsu is a traditional hands-on therapy originating in Japan and means ‘finger pressure’. The principles of Shiatsu are rooted in the traditions of oriental medicine using similar energy channels and points as acupuncture, but using non-invasive touch, pressure, stretching and mobilisation techniques.

Shiatsu activates the body’s natural ability to heal and restore balance by promoting deep relaxation, improves mood, aids sleep and relieves tension. It is a natural way to help relax and cope with issues such as stress, back and muscle pain and sports injuries.  Regular treatments can maintain health, well-being. It is a complete system of healing through touch and draws extensively on traditional oriental medicine.

What happens in a Shiatsu Therapy-Massage treatment?

Shiatsu treatments are tailored to each individual client and can vary between 20 minutes to a hour. Each treatment session begins with a consultation, to discuss lifestyle and symptoms in order to gain a full picture of any possible issues, your treatment will be appropriate to your needs.  You remain fully clothed at all times during the treatment.  Please ensure that you are wearing clean loose comfortable clothing (e.g. sweatshirt, tracksuit trousers and cotton socks).  Treatment takes place on a padded floor mat, coach or Shiatsu chair.

After treatment health-care suggestions and recommendation maybe provided.

If you have been diagnosed with or suspect you may have a pre-existing medical condition, please consult your GP for advice before starting any new therapies.
