What Shiatsu with David offers

Shiatsu treatments support alleviation of physical symptoms, such as muscular/skeletal problems, chronic pain, headaches, digestive problems, fatigue and sleeping problems. As an holistic therapy, Shiatsu also helps ease and transform emotional struggles, which often go hand-in-hand with physical symptoms.

Shiatsu works by the release and strengthening of flows of energy in the body (meridians). With this, our energy patterns begin to reshape and we discover new ways of feeling and being.

A session gives you the space to take time out, re-centre and settle, and feel into your body so that you gain an awareness and understanding of physical and emotional patterns.

The Shiatsu I do is about quality of touch, connection and attentive presence, so that you feel supported, understood and accepted. I am mindful of the way our bodies express the complex stories of our life, and am sensitive to the emotions and meanings that are present in the body. I aim to create a space where all kinds of feelings are allowed.
