Tracy Krikler Shiatsu

Tracy Krikler
Shiatsu Practitioner in London

I am a Shiatsu Practitioner and Teacher registered with the Shiatsu Society UK and fully insured with Balens Ltd. .
Do you need:
- help to release pain - muscles, joints, back, headaches, frozen shoulder, tinnitus, PMS or IBS.
- to recover from injury or unprocessed trauma
- support when life feels overwhelming or stuck
- better sleep, better digestion
I use a gentle and effective 'Listening' touch: Fascia Release, Acupressure, stretches and movement - to relax your whole body and correct structural mis-alignment that results in chronic tension, pain and weakness.
This can help you feel looser and lighter - physically, emotionally and mentally.

These are the kinds of things that affect many of us, and I offer natural and enjoyable ways of helping these conditions. The added benefit of receiving shiatsu is that you can feel more energised and enjoy what life has to offer you. Long term problems you thought could not change, can move and take you towards new opportunities.

Approach to Shiatsu & How I Work

Shiatsu is a holistic physical therapy that uses oriental and western techniques to bring you to better health. It can be used for specific physical symptoms or to support you in keeping healthy and manage with stress or difficult times in your life.

With 21 years experience of shiatsu bodywork, I will focus the session according to your needs, and introduce simple ways that you can support yourself.
The priority is to relax your body and allow the whole system to unblock where it is stuck, so that you can move more easily, and everything can flow with more space and ease. I facilitate alignment, and connection with what you need, so that you are able to help yourself recover your vitality and flow.

I use sensitive touch with stretching and movement; acupressure points, meridian work. I focus particularly on the Primary Meridians of Governing & Conception Vessels and Central Channel. We check in at the start with what you want to work with and learn to connect with and listen to your body with what it wants or needs.

You will usually lie on a futon the floor or massage couch. You wear loose clothing. I suggest a few regular session at least fortnightly, and then reduce to monthly visits to maintain the benefit.

"I have had the most incredible shiatsu treatment with Tracy - I feel so lucky to have found her. I had an ache in my hip for a couple of years that she has completely taken away. The feeling of my posture after a session is beautiful. She is open to conversations about how the emotional and physical link without being at all intrusive. It's a wonderful experience and I recommend it wholeheartedly. "
