People often come to Shiatsu for support in making changes such as:
Each change may require us to take small steps, each a tiny change in itself, and many of these tiny changes may involve breaking a habit.
Maybe I come to shiatsu hoping to change the way my body feels (perhaps I feel physical pain, or perhaps I just feel a little 'uncomfortable'). In the course of my treatments, things may start to shift (as muscles relax and tension is eased). And ... as part of the process I may choose to change a habit or two in support of these positive shifts. Changes could be as wide-ranging as dietary habit, exercise or even thought or emotional patterns. Just as an example ... I might choose to sit straight (i.e. stop crossing my legs).
Sounds easy? Well, yes it is, I suppose, it’s so small: .....

So this month is full of changes for me! Meadowlark Healthy for Sport has now closed and I've been welcomed into fantastic space at the Healthy Life Centre in Bread Street. I am still present at Meadowlark Yoga, working from their Moon Studio, no.43 Argyle Place. Having now seen clients at both places for a couple of week I feel really positive about the move(s) - I have two beautifully comfortable spaces to work from and I couldn't ask for nicer people to work with.
Would you like some mid-week 'Me time' to get you through to Friday?

Shiatsu is a way of creating space:
in our lives - a brief hour in which to chill undisturbed
in our minds - by bringing our attention into our bodies, habitual thought patterns may slow or even stop
in our bodies - gentle movement, whether hip rotations, stimulation of pressure points or vigorous palming, helps blood to flow, nerves to fire and space or a feeling of ease to spread in the body.
Regular shiatsu can support you in handling either daily life, or exceptional circumstances, by providing space in which to relax body, mind and spirit. Aches and pains may be soothed away; stressful situations momentarily suspended.
This is all most helpful, and yet, there are ways in which our own contributions may assist this process: we may help ourselves...
Take time to centre.
Simply paying attention to ...

What is Shiatsu?
Shiatsu translates as ‘finger pressure’ and is based on traditional Japanese massage. Combining acupressure, massage, flowing movement and joint rotations helps to disperse tension, reduce pain, promote relaxation and healthy functioning of the body systems (circulation, breathing, digestion etc.). Shiatsu therapists are guided by their experience & knowledge of physiology and traditional Chinese medicine and apply pressure using fingers, thumbs, palms and elbows and combine it with other techniques.
