Shiatsu and Trauma

“Trauma is the designation for

  • The experience or observation of an unusual event
  • That which comes unexpectedly and is inevitable
  • That which is a serious threat to physical health and existence
  • That which has consequences that might last for a long time

Shiatsu for traumatised people can generally contribute in

  • Soothing physical symptoms
  • Increasing emotional stability, wellbeing, life-joy and life-quality
  • Releasing energy-blockages and regaining connections
  • Strengthening body awareness, selfesteem and the ability to draw clear boundaries”

Sessions last one hour with a detailed case history being taken at the start of the first session. The treatment aims to be gentle, understanding and supportive. Contact Tamsin 07821 264 882 or shiatsu@ryoho.co.uk.
