PLEASE NOTE: I have reluctantly decided not to take on new clients for the foreseeable future. My first available appointments are not until January 2024 and even then I would be unable to offer the continuity of regular follow up sessions. I am happy to be contacted as a consultant with a view to discuss individual needs and suggest referral to other practitioners.
Qualifying as a Shiatsu practitioner in 1992 Kim has been in full time practice ever since. His areas of skill are in enabling space for change, when conditions (both physical and non-physical) have become "stuck". In particular those affecting posture, musculoskeletal function and self image.
Kim's other great love is the practice of Qigong. A form of exercise that combines movement, breath and imagery. Modified forms of this are frequently offered to clients as "homework".
Every Shiatsu session begins with a guided tour around the body, drawing awareness to how differing areas feel, move and relate to the whole. Clients are encouraged to use the experience as a meditation on the body, sometimes referred to as a Body Scan. Treatments combine the use of pressure points with muscle and joint stretches – the work is deep yet gentle and respectful, specifically focussed on each individual's need.
Outside the treatment room, Kim enjoys finding space . . . anywhere . . . especially where least expected . . .
