What is Shiatsu?
Originating in Japan and influenced by Traditional Chinese and Western medical approaches, Shiatsu is a well-respected, versatile, non-intrusive and deeply relaxing holistic therapy. Following similar principles to acupuncture, Shiatsu stimulates the body's own healing processes through the application of gentle, sustained pressure to points and channels (meridians) across the body. This unique and powerful form of bodywork acts to re-balance, release and restore the flow of vital energy (Ki) along the meridians to support good health and well-being. Shiatsu is literally translated as finger (Shi) pressure (atsu).
"I began my Shiatsu journey in 2015, enrolling on the Foundation Course with the Northern School of Shiatsu in Sheffield. I had received a single Shiatsu treatment from a friend who was completing the three-year Diploma and I was instantly intrigued. The treatment felt wonderful, and was different from anything I had experienced. I was drawn to the process of self-development and healing that Shiatsu could offer me. I graduated from the Northern School in 2018 and have over four years’ experience giving and receiving this restorative and unique form of therapy (including training years). I am a fully insured Member of the Register of the Shiatsu Society (MrSS), and in August 2018 I also became the third Director of In Touch. I am constantly developing the practical and theoretical application of Shiatsu, and my knowledge, confidence and professionalism are growing at a remarkable speed. My professional background prior to discovering Shiatsu was very varied. I worked in the fields of publishing, communications, international relations, mental health, housing, advocacy, law and education. I live in Wakefield and have a three-year-old little girl".
