What is Shiatsu?

Shiatsu is a Japanese massage technique for promoting natural balance in your body. You keep your clothes on when receiving a Shiatsu treatment.

COVID-19 I am not able to offer face-to-face Shiatsu treatements at this time. However, I am offering Shiatsu Supervision and Distant Shiatsu Sessions. Please click here for more information, and do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to.

When I travel, I offer a Shiatsu session in return for lodgings

If you are interested, please contact me.


After enjoyable teaching in Athens in June 2019 and lots of writing (notably in Estonia and Wales), I am excited to say that my first book, ‘Working with Death and Loss in Shiatsu Practice‘ for Singing Dragon Press is now available from Amazon to pre-order. Upcoming workshops include Shiatsu with Children in Athens, Greece; Death, Loss and Grief in Shiatsu Practice in Lisbon, Portugal; Shiatsu and Seiki in Montpelier, France. I will be offering Autumn Leaves Fall, Shiatsu and Grief in Amsterdam as part of the European Shiatsu Congress where the book will be launched. Full details in the side menu (laptop) and below (simply scroll down if you are on your mobile). All in all, a busy 2020!
