Mindfulness - Anxiety - Breathing - Looking deeply at the underlying cause of pain and suffering.
Shiatsu is a traditional hands-on Japanese healing art. It can help in a wide range of conditions - from specific injuries to more general symptoms of poor health. Shiatsu is a deeply relaxing experience and regular Shiatsu sessions help to prevent the build up of stress in our daily lives.
In Eastern Tradition describes the world in terms of energy. All things are considered to be manifestations of a vital universal force, called 'Ki' by the Japanese, ''Chi", or 'Qi', in China. Ki is the primary substance and motive force of life. It is most often described as "energy", but Ki is also synonymous with breath in the Japanese and Chinese languages. In Oriental medicine, harmony of Ki within the human body is conceived as being essential to health.
The philosophy underlying Shiatsu is that Ki flows throughout the body in a series of channels called meridians. For many different reasons Ki can stop flowing freely and this then produces a symptom.
Common conditions which have been helped by Shiatsu include:
•helps aid sleep
Your Shiatsu practitioner will consider your state of health, the symptoms you are experiencing and, depending on your constitution and general energy levels, will use a variety of techniques to improve your energy flow. These may include gentle holding, pressing with palms, thumbs, fingers, elbows, knees and feet on the meridians and, when appropriate, more dynamic rotations and stretches.
As the quality of Ki changes, the symptoms associated with a lack of flow will gradually improve. Shiatsu is a therapy that works on the individual as a complete being - not just the physical body but also on an emotional and/or mental level.

"Marie makes me feel better just being with her, the atmosphere is calm, relaxing and peaceful. Treatment is better than any other I have had, I only ever wish it didn't have to end. Wonderful."

"I have been going to Marie for a Shiatsu every month almost 20 years. That in itself tells a story! Marie is an extremely experienced practitioner, this together with a great deal of sensitivity and intuition puts her at the top of her field. She is able to gauge what is required for each of my visits and I know that her experience informs how she treats each client in the most appropriate way. Over the years I have recommended Marie to many many people and am delighted to be able to use this forum to continue to do so. "

"I have been recieving monthly shiatsu from Marie for over 10 years. I am a physical theatre performer, Director and visual artist. Maries' treatments have been, and continues to be a critical part of my practice and well being. I have had various and many styles of body work throughout my career and I cannot recommend Marie highly enough.
She has my total trust, due to her highest skilled, intuitive and professional approach, her ongoing research and curiosity and that she creates a space and enviroment which is an absolutely perfect respite from the busy,hectic world we live in."
