What Shiatsu with David offers
Shiatsu treatments support emotional change and alleviation of physical symptoms, such as muscular/skeletal problems, chronic pain, headaches, digestive problems, fatigue and sleeping problems.
Shiatsu works by the release and strengthening of flows of energy in the body (meridians). The Shiatsu I do is about quality of touch, connection and attentive presence, so that you feel supported, understood and accepted. I am mindful of the way our bodies express the complex stories of our life, and am sensitive to the emotions and meanings that are present in the body. I aim to create a space where all kinds of feelings are allowed.
A session gives you the space to take time out, settle into yourself, gain awareness of your body, feel different in your body, and to develop insights into how your physical symptoms and emotional experience are interlinked.
I usually work with people over a course of treatments to help achieve deep and long-lasting growth and change. At the outset we would discuss the problems you face and identify an intention for how you want to feel in your life. We would then work towards the changes you want. The number of treatment sessions depends on your needs, but I would recommend at least five so as to give sufficient time for changes to emerge.
