I started my Shiatsu studies in 1980 when a university student. Then receiving Shiatsu helped me recover from a serious illness and then set me on course to train as a therapist myself. I studied in Japan and Australia and then with Sonia Moriceau and Healing Shiatsu in the UK. I set up as a practitioner in 1988. I subsequently became a Shiatsu teacher in 1998 and have been practising and teaching ever since.
Over the years, I have added an understanding of Western Anatomy and Physiology to my orthodox Shiatsu training and so provide a bridge between the Eastern and Western approaches to the body. My approach is to involve the client as much as possible in his/her own healing, to help him/her to understand what is going on and what he/she can do, alongside what I do, to help themselves. This empowers and gives confidence in how they can be more proactive in their healing. I find this way of working more effective and more long-lasting in its results.
I am happy to work with any conditions, any age and anyone who needs help in any way - whether with their physical or emotional self.
I also teach regular Inner Qigong classes in Frome.
