What should I expect from a treatment?
Treatments are different for everyone but all will start with a discussion of your requirements. Traditional Shiatsu involves using pressure, stretching, holding, releasing and massage techniques. The principles of Shiatsu mean that we will vary the pressure and techniques as is needed.
What should I wear?
Please wear loose, warm clothing with a long-sleeved top (a tracksuit is ideal), and bring clean socks.
How many treatments will I need?
Every condition is different. Every person is unique so it is difficult to say exactly how many treatments you will need. As a rough guide, for chronic conditions, 4 or 6 weekly treatments are usually needed to see some benefit. For more acute conditions, or just general health and well being, a monthly Shiatsu will be just fine.
