Shiatsu and Mental Health

I use kindness and listening to create a safe place to talk and receive body work – this is sometimes the only place they receive any physical touch.

Shiatsu – A Way Of Life

Shiatsu can do a lot to benefit people and provide personal autonomy. No tools – just our hands. It’s incredible! If one day we find that we have to look after ourselves, Shiatsu will come in handy.

Shiatsu for Mental Health & Cancer Patients

Shiatsu alleviates pain by stimulating the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain-relieving chemicals. This reduces the need for pain medication and improves patients’ quality of life
Care Homes
