I am also a shiatsu practitioner, I trained for 4 years for my shiatsu diploma and my postgraduate training.
I have been practicing shiatsu for 10 years now and I see it as part of my mindfulness practice. Shiastu originated in Japan and is a form of therapeutic body work. I create a safe and compassionate space for you to come and be, to open to your true self. Through gentle touch, rotations and stretches I help you to reconnect with your body and relax into stillness. Creating this space through shiastu your body and mind can begin to start its healing process. I specialise in helping people manage stress and anxiety. 50 minute sessions are £45. Below is a poem that I wrote expressing my experience of shiatsu.
Shiatsu My heart begins to soften, I recognise where I am, An opportunity to express, A time for non-judgment, Kindness and compassion surrounds.
I step into connection with the breath, A sense of flow arises, A deep grounding and stillness settles within. Perhaps a realisation or an acceptance, A deep knowing of support.
Journeying into my body and mind. Meeting both strength and vulnerability, Seeing the pain and joy of life, Acknowledgement of what is, Being present with all experience.
Contraction and expansion, Stretch, rotate, move, feel, Opening to abundant vitality. Reconnecting to myself and life, Awakening well-being within.
