About me

Ruth is a highly experienced shiatsu practitioner and sports massage therapist, with 14 years clinical experience.

Shiatsu is a profoundly relaxing therapy, which is truly holistic. A treatment can help with aches and pains, deeply relax you and improve your sense of wellbeing.

Shiatsu is a Japanese form of massage that not only works on musculoskeletal issues, but also on a deeper level to improve the mind body connection.

Shiatsu is based on the same principles as acupuncture, using thumbs on the pressure points instead of needles.

Shiatsu is what everyone in London needs!

Areas of speciality include:

  • stress related issues
  • postural imbalances
  • shoulder / back pain
  • muscular pain

Following an initial consultation, treatment aims will be agreed so that each treatment is unique and tailor made to the individual. A session lasts for an hour and is given with the client fully clothed, so please wear loose comfortable clothes.

Ruth may suggest stretches or exercises for you to do at home to help maintain the improvements gained from the session.

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.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified


In Stoke Newington I have a clinic on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays in the afternoon and evenings. I am available for treatments in Leyton on Thursdays and on Friday mornings.
