Jenny White - MRSSt
Hello. I am Jenny White and I'm a Shiatsu Practitioner based at Santosa Yoga Studio, & Cafe in Albert Street, Leith, Edinburgh.
I’m 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. And I love working with people making big and brave changes in their lives.
If you are looking for some gentle, therapeutic bodywork that acts not only on the physical body, but also the psychological, emotional and spiritual aspects of being, then you’ve come to the right place.
I have a background in social care and community development. As well as 1:1 shiatsu treatments, I offer on-site seated shiatsu sessions and self-shiatsu workshops to 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 moved to Scotland from Nottingham in 2008 to complete my three year Shiatsu training with the Glasgow School of Shiatsu . I have also trained with Rob Nairn and the Mindfulness Association. I have a Post Grad Certificate in Emotional Education from Derby University.
Shiatsu is a hands-on Japanese body therapy 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.
Drop me a line or give me a call if you would like to book an appointment, or if you want to have a chat to see whether my style of Shiatsu is right for you .
“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!”
-William, Special Needs teacher
"Jenny listened to my needs thoughtfully, so that she could prescribe the treatment needed for my rheumatoid arthritis. She worked caringly over deep tissue to release blockages and resistance. I felt the wisdom and flow of energy which was liberating!"
