She also works by the sea at home in St Leonard?s and is now available at The Cloudesley.
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 and treatments. They are three different people after all.
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 are 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.
SHIATSU FOR PREGNANCY
Caroline specialises in supporting women through their pregnancy and postnatal period.
Why is shiatsu helpful in pregnancy?
Shiatsu is deeply relaxing. You don?t need to be experiencing symptoms to benefit from a treatment but it can ease nausea, heartburn, backache, haemorrhoids and sciatica. It?s a great way to connect with your baby whilst being nurtured yourself. It is used for pain relief in labour, to encourage an overdue birth and to turn a breech baby.
Caroline is available to give coaching sessions to mothers and their birth support partners on simple techniques and acupressure points that can be used to ease pain in labour.
