Shiatsu is a physical therapy that supports and strengthens the body’s natural ability to heal and balance itself. It works on the whole person – not just a physical body, but also a psychological, emotional and spiritual being.
Shiatsu originated in Japan from traditional Chinese medicine, with influences from more recent Western therapies. Although shiatsu means ‘finger pressure’ in Japanese, in practise a practitioner uses touch, comfortable pressure and manipulative techniques to adjust the body’s physical structure and balance its energy flow. It is a deeply relaxing experience and regular treatments can alleviate stress and illness and maintain health and well-being.
Shiatsu can help with a wide range of health issues, including pain control, stress relief, hormonal imbalances and emotional healing. It can also help with chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, migraines and asthma.
Treatments usually last an hour and 15 minutes, and take place on a futon. I also offer seated treatments which are especially useful if there are mobility concerns.
I currently treat in Norwich, at the Shiatsu Centre on Lower Goat Lane and at the Wellbeing Centre on Chapel Field East.
My 2017 rates are £44 per treatment. If you would like a home visit there will be a small supplement added for travel time.
