I qualified as a Zen Shiatsu practitioner in 2006
I love shiatsu. I love to practice and receive it.
I have an extensive and varied set of clients.
Regular sessions of shiatsu have helped me to be both mentally and physically stronger and to overcome chronic illness.
During a treatment gentle hand and thumb pressure is used as well as applied stretches and the use of release points. This shifts energy blockages and helps the body to regain its’ natural equilibrium allowing the body to begin to repair itself.
I consider it a privilege to help my clients to relax, to be more grounded, and for them to see their general health and well-being improve.
Please feel free to contact me with any queries.
I work as a Shiatsu therapist at the Mulberry Centre, West Middlesex Hospital.

Some comments from clients...
"Every single time I walked out after the treatment I felt like a new person. I found the sessions' wonderful, grounding and relaxing. I know the treatments helped to prevent injuries and also relieved stress" Georgie Islip, Personal Trainer.
"Yolanda has been treating me every two weeks for just over a year. I used to have very poor mobility and pain in my shoulder and this has now entirely gone" Val Lowman Charity Director
"As A musician I encounter stress in both the short term and the long term. Shiatsu has helped me understand my own body much more and as well as sorting out some specific physical aches and pains has turned around my whole approach to work on and off the stage" Colin Riley Musician
