Who can benefit?
Absolutely anybody! You do not need to be experiencing
ill health to benefit from a session. Shiatsu
feels so nurturing and calming you will want
one as a treat. Why not include a Shiatsu in
your relaxing stay at The Cloudesley?
However, for those of you with health concerns,
Shiatsu can help address a wide range of issues
including sciatica, headaches, back pain, insomnia,
depression, stress and fatigue. A shiatsu can
never be repeated even on the same person.
If three people come to me because they have
a migraine, there will be three different diagnosis

What happens in a session?
You need to wear warm comfortable clothing
with socks and loose trousers. You lie
comfortably on your back, front or side on a
futon on the floor, as you
stretched and specific points are worked
using thumbs, palms and even feet. It can be
gentle, sometimes dynamic, always relaxing.
You might leap off the futon and feel energised
immediately or you may have a deep sense
of well-being and want to enjoy a rest in your
room as your body continues to
respond to the treatment.
