"many people ask me why I focus on Shiatsu when there are many other potential strings to my bow, the reason I give is because through dedicated focus on this very efficient modality it is possible to connect with the receiver on which ever level is most effective for them to release the underlying causes of their dis-ease"
Louise has plenty of experience in working with people to ease physical symptoms related to common conditions like chronic back ache, shoulder pain, neck pain, migraines, sciatica, digestive problems such as I.B.S, Crone's Disease etc, gentio-urinary conditions. Louise has successfully helped people to work through conditions which affect the body and mind together such as addiction, depression, insomnia and anxiety related conditions including PTSD.
"The use of relaxing music or sound and pure tone forms an integral part of my work and helps me and the receiver to harmonise in a meditative state which is part of the Shiatsu experience." Louise
