My Approach

I am very curious person and like to ask lots of questions which proves useful in a clinical setting aimed the finding the root cause is what it is all about. We are all here to learn so I see what I do as helping people learn how their body has interpreted their experience.

The framework of knowledge I draw on combines shiatsu theory with that of Traditional Chinese Medicine. I blend TuiNa and shiatsu techniques and I am happy to treat people where they are physically, mental and spiritually.

What to expect

  • Comfortable finger, thumb, palm, elbow or shin pressure applied over clothing
  • Treatment begins on the hara or abdomen with diagnosis and treatment happening simultaneously
  • Shiatsu is a deeply relaxing experience. Regular treatments can alleviate stress and illness while promoting health and well-being
