Jenny White - MRSSt
Hello. I am Jenny and I have Shiatsu clinics based at Santosa on Albert Street in Leith, and Napiers in Bristo Square, Edinburgh. I run 'Self-Care with Shiatsu' workshops across Central Scotland.
If you are looking for some gentle, therapeutic bodywork that acts not only on the physical body, but also the psychological and emotional aspects of being, then you’ve come to the right place.
I am passionate about working with people from all backgrounds, supporting them to be healthy and well in all areas of their lives: work, family and relationships.
I support people when they are experiencing tension & stress, difficulties or big changes within their education, career, relationships or physical health. Shiatsu helps with the physical and emotional aspects of these situations.
Clients come to see me as they move through life events: pregnancy, post-pregnancy, peri-menopause, and entering the menopause and middle years.
I support people when they are dealing with the symptoms of illnesses and coming to terms with chronic health conditions.
Many people come regularly as part of their self-care routine in order to maintain their quality of life.
Shiatsu Connects - Community Shiatsu.
I have a background in social care and community development. As well as 1:1 shiatsu treatments, I am developing a Social Enterprise 'Shiatsu Connects'. I offer on-site seated shiatsu sessions and self-shiatsu workshops to charities, community groups and corporate staff teams. The workshop can tailored to the needs of the group, from 1 hour to all day workshops. These can include on-site seated shiatsu sessions, and group sessions that give participants the chance to learn simple self-shiatsu exercises; acupressure techniques as well as mindfulness techniques.
I discovered Shiatsu for myself 20 years ago when I experienced ‘burnout’ within a stressful work environment. Shiatsu helped me deal with the physical & emotional aspects of stress and helped stabilise my body and mind. Regular treatments helped to connect me to what I truly wanted out of life. It gave me the resilience to make big changes and eventually I moved to Scotland and lived on Holy Isle, a small island next to Arran while I retrained to become a Shiatsu Practitioner. I moved to Edinburgh in 2014.
I have trained with Glasgow School of Shiatsu and the Mindfulness Association. I have a Post Grad Certificate in Emotional Education. I am a Registered Member of the Shiatsu Society (MRSSt).
Finding the right therapist that you are comfortable with is important. So please feel free to call or email me if you have any questions or concerns and we can discuss what you need, your particular circumstance and symptoms.
Shiatsu is performed on a futon or a massage table, fully-clothed. Please let me know if you have any mobility issues.
You are fully clothed during your treatment. Bring (or wear) comfortable, loose fitting clothing and preferably socks. Jogging bottoms and a t-shirt are ideal.
Shiatsu is a hands-on Japanese touch therapy (acupressure massage) which can support you to deal with the stresses and strains, and aches and pains that may occur in every day life. It can help with physical and emotional issues which may appear in the body as pain or illness. It can also help to maintain good health and well-being in a proactive, preventative way.

"I was introduced to Shiatsu when Jenny White gave up her spare time to offer her services to anyone attending the Maggie's Cancer Care Centre and I'm very grateful she did. Having been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer 3 years prior to this I was in considerable pain and struggling to come to terms with my diagnosis. I now have regular sessions with Jenny, as I was pain-free for the first time since my diagnosis after my first few sessions. I have found it to be an essential part of my healing from cancer, PTSD and last year my sessions helped considerably after I suffered from two broken legs. Jenny is one of the kindest, caring people you can meet and clearly has a passion for helping people heal. After my sessions Jenny gives me advice and exercises and teaches me various different acupressure points that I can use at home to help with my healing. "
“Fabulous! Jenny listened to my nebulous complaints and understood my problems. I felt that she inspired trust and I had faith that she could help. The treatment was sometimes strong but also very soothing. Afterwards I felt invigorated but calm. I continued to feel the beneficial effects the following day – and felt more flowing and grounded.”
“I felt I was very much in the hands of someone who knew the work well and expressed a deeply caring attitude. I felt that my body was a lot more relaxed and certain tensions released. Very much a whole body experience with useful advice afterwards. Thanks!”
