Shiatsu ShinTai treatments
Shiatsu is a form of Japanese Traditional Medicine which uses the power of touch, movement, meditation and breath to help you connect with the healing wisdom of your body, mind and spirit. A powerful and transformative art, a system and philosophy for healing, self-awareness and self-development. Learn more about shiatsu here
I specialise in Shiatsu ShinTai which is an evolution of traditional shiatsu. Learn more about ShinTai here.
My approach is influenced by my experience of various bodywork and energy healing practices synthesised over 26 years in practice. Shiatsu and oriental medicine, yoga, Qi Gong and meditation. Structural alignment, cranial and fascia work, chakras and other energy alignment approaches. I draw on this experience to help you connect with your own healing potential and to discover alignment, vitality & flow in body, mind and life.

Shiatsu does not replace medical care, but is intended to support the healing process. If you have health concerns please consult your GP.
What to expect in a shiatsu treatment session
The treatment is usually carried out on a padded surface at floor level or on a massage couch. It is also possible to receive sitting on a chair. You will remain fully clothed during the session – something loose and comfortable that you would wear to a yoga class or to exercise in.
I diagnose areas in the body that are misaligned or disconnected and where vitality and flow are obstructed or lacking. I then use a variety of techniques to enhance the flow of energy and connection in your whole system – physical, emotional, mental, spiritual – and support you to activate your own healing potential and find your own alignment.
I may use strong and dynamic movement, stretches and joint mobilisation or gentle holding and unwinding of deeply held tension to leave a calm and relaxing, yet dynamic effect on the body and mind. It is suitable for children, adults and the elderly and techniques are adjusted according to your condition.
The first consultation is to get to know you better and for you to try out the therapy. We will discuss your needs and you can receive a treatment to decide if it is right for you.
Follow up sessions will be arranged after discussion according to your requirements.
If I can’t help you I will direct you to another professional from my wide network of contacts who may be able to help. Either way my aim is to help you find your own path to a healthy and happy life.
Appointment sessions are 60 minutes and cost £75.
My private clinic is based in the Mapperley Park area of Nottingham, just north of the city centre. Free parking and within easy reach of Nottingham train station.

I also offer remote options to work with me and for support in between hands-on sessions.
Self-Shiatsu Support (online)
This is a 1 hour online session with me by video conference. After the initial consultation, I will guide you through customised energy-based activities including Shiatsu stretches & exercises, Self-acupressure, Qi Gong, breathing techniques, depending on your needs. I specialise in Proprioceptive Exercise – a unique energy based meditative movement for physical alignment, mental clarity, emotional resilience and spiritual connection. Suitable for all ages and conditions.
Distance Healing – Shiatsu style
After an initial consultation (video or phone) and some guided energy-based exercises, I work remotely with your body’s energy system to facilitate the release of compression/restrictions, enhance the flow of life force and alignment with your life path. The benefits can be physical, emotional, mental or spiritual although the emphasis is often on life path issues. Suitable for those who enjoy the more subtle energetic aspects of my work.
