A bit about Shiatsu…
Shiatsu is a form of traditional Japanese bodywork which draws on a long history of oriental medicine. Using five element theory and Chinese medical theory, Shiatsu, meaning ‘finger pressure’ works with the energy or ‘ki’ in the body by way of the body’s energetic meridian pathways. Using meridian massage, pressure points, stretches and manipulations the practitioner will use her thumbs and fingers, palms and sometimes elbows to contact the client and encourage awareness and flow of energy in the body.
THE WAY I WORK
I bring Shiatsu to you with an emphasis on meeting you where you are at, physically, emotionally and spiritually. My wish and work are to meet you unconditionally so that we can create an environment for you to arrive in yourself as you are, to make space for who you are in the moment to nurture a flow and depth of healing in connection which is relational and transformational.
‘ The body, not the thinking brain, is where we experience most of our pain, pleasure , and joy, and where we process most of what happens to us. It is also where we do most of our healing , including our emotional and psychological healing. And it is where we experience resilience and a sense of flow’ Resma Menakem from his book ‘My Grandmothers Hands’.
