I came across Shiatsu Therapy when I was working as a performer. As an actor I was always seeking embodiment, presence and free flowing creativity. Bodywork fostered all these things and challenged me to go even further by being courageous in my relationships and learning to inhabit my most heartfelt self. Its a journey that is ongoing!
In learning about the Taoist and Zen philosophies together with the Chinese Theory of the Five Elements, I found a beautiful language that expresses our deep interconnection with the cycles of nature and ways to think beyond our contemporary detachment, that are essentially healing.
Deepening my knowledge through studying Biodynamics has brought me more stillness & more ways to listen to subtle expressions of life. Marrying an ancient art and a 20th Century art of touch has given me flexibility and depth in my practice, guided by many experienced and compassionate teachers at Bristol School of Shiatsu and Body College London.
Both arts teach that your body is intelligent, powerful and capable of transformation. With the help of others, you are capable of changing the way you see yourself and the world around you.
Through receiving Shiatsu with Transformational Dialogue and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, I rediscovered the vitality, joy and connection to life that had been buried in me, while I was endlessly re-living a reaction to events in the past. I learned the meaning of engaging fully with my real life and relationships. This is what I aim to share with others through my practice.
