About me

I am a registered qualified Trauma-Informed Shiatsu practitioner, acupressure massage therapist, and teacher trainee at the Manchester Shiatsu College, a member of the Shiatsu Society UK, and registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council.


I have been practising Shiatsu since 2015. I am a teaching assistant at Shiatsu College Manchester. I have experience in delivering safe shiatsu treatments to clients affected

by a wide range of chronic and acute physical and mental health conditions.

I also offer Japanese Facial Rejuvenation treatments for sustainable beauty and well-being.

How I work

My Shiatsu is person-centred, focused on supporting your wellbeing, and quality of life, encouraging mind-body awareness.

I work closely with you, tailoring and personalising treatments to match your individual needs.

Shiatsu session: an overview

The first session lasts one hour and fifteen minutes, encompassing a 15-minute consultation. Follow-up sessions are one hour long, featuring a briefer 5-minute consultation that can be adjusted based on the client's needs. 

Client support

Supporting my clients is my top priority. When applicable, I provide gentle and personalized exercises to complement the benefits of the shiatsu sessions.


My shiatsu practice is in Manchester City Centre (Northern Quarter) and Manchester South (Chorlton). Occasionally I offer home visits. Please ask.
