Does it Complement Other Therapies?

Shiatsu is effective as a stand-alone treatment, but

it can also be supportive and reinforce other physical and psychological therapies, like:

  • Counselling

  • Physiotherapy

  • Chiropractic

  • Osteopathic

  • Psychotherapy

What Should I Expect During a Treatment?

Every Shiatsu treatment is adjusted so it works within the comfort zone of each client. This makes it suitable for all age groups and many conditions.

Because Zen Shiatsu is a bodywork therapy that helps the mind and the energetic aspect of a person, there isn't a need to always incorporate dynamic stretches. There are other ways of working that can help restore a more harmonious outcome.

Every treatment is done with compassion and focus, making sure the techniques I use meet your needs.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

You could think of this in the same way as having regular sessions at the gym, seeing a physiotherapist, or even taking medication; progress may be gradual and take a few sessions. I would recommend four to six weekly treatments, with reviews after each session to see how the treatments are taking root.


My aim, with the use of Shiatsu, is to help your body facilitate a change to alleviate what may be inhibiting your day-to-day life.

On this journey, I may offer some suggestions to try in-between appointments, like some breathing techniques, Qi Gong, or some stretches.


As you start to show significant improvement, each treatment will be spaced out to fortnightly or monthly sessions.

How Does Shiatsu Work?

To find one answer for this would be difficult.

Shiatsu takes a holistic approach to helping restore balance to your system. This means that it works on the physical and psycho-emotional levels, so for the healing to begin, relaxation is key.

A session of Zen Shiatsu is known for its relaxing qualities. This soothing aspect helps to calm the nervous system, bringing your body and mind into a state of homeostasis, which assists your internal environment to self-regulate, easing any tension that is present.


There is a lot more to this system that is based on medical practises which has been around for thousands of years, but I hope this will give you some idea about Shiatsu.
