I qualified as a Shiatsu practitioner in 1992 and has been in full time practice ever since. My areas of skill are in creating space for change. Conditions (both physical and non-physical) that have become "stuck". In particular those affecting posture, musculoskeletal function and self image.
My 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 guided meditation on the body. 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!
