About me

Ruth is a highly experienced shiatsu practitioner, with 18 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 known to be beneficial for many issues such as migraines, menopause symptoms, digestive issues and it is also anecdotally reported to be helpful to sufferers of long Covid.

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 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.
