Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese healing art, beneficial for all aspects of well-being. Developed by practitioners through the centuries to balance mind and body by stimulation of pressure points and energy channels, receivers of Shiatsu often find it revitalising as well as deeply relaxing.
Shiatsu can provide relief from a wide variety of symptoms including:
- Stress and fatigue
- Muscle and joint problems
- Anxiety and depression
- Menstrual problems
- Digestive disorders
- Old sports injuries
Shiatsu can also be a wonderful treatment during pregnancy and to aid with induction.
The treatment is practiced through loose comfortable clothing and a clean pair of socks.
Patricia works from diagnosis, giving individual treatments according to particular needs, conditions or requirements. She uses a variety of styles and techniques to access the meridians and pressure points and gives her treatments on a futon and cushions on the ground in the traditional Japanese style.
