The Heart of Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a Japanese bodywork which incorporates the Traditional Chinese principles of the Five Elements, chi (life force), and yin and yang allowing the practitioner to diagnose and tailor each treatment to the individual’s needs. A fundamental belief in the Chinese approach to health is that chi governs our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being, and that these are not separate aspects but are instead interconnected. The chi flows through the body in a number of channels called meridians and when the chi is blocked or imbalanced this causes symptoms of ill health.

Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese bodywork therapy that combines centuries old Oriental philosophy with Western physiology, anatomy and manipulation. Using this approach alongside Shin Tai, which focuses on releasing deeply held stress patterns within the body, treatments are adapted appropriately for each individual.

Amongst the most common issues people bring to the sessions are:

  • Lack of joint mobility

  • Digestion and IBS symptoms

  • Muscular/sports injuries

  • Postural misalignment

  • Sciatica and back pain

  • Restricted breathing

  • Menstrual problems

  • Anxiety and stress

  • Headaches

  • Fatigue

Our Shiatsu Practitioner is Mick Moxham.




Note: Shiatsu does not replace medical care but works safely alongside it. If you have health concerns please consult your GP.
