SHIATSU

Altair de Almeida and Clare Wratten

about shiatsu

Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese healing art, the origins of which go back thousands of years. Literally translated SHIATSU means ‘finger pressure’. It is often used to rejuvenate the mind, body and spirit; promoting relaxation and stimulating a person’s own healing power by harmonising their vital energy called Ki or Ch’i. This vital energy travels through the body along pathways called meridians, which fundamentally are the same as those used in ‘Acupuncture’.  Shiatsu helps release toxins and deep-seated tensions from the muscles and aids in stimulating the hormonal system. On a more subtle level Shiatsu allows the receiver to relax deeply and connect with the body’s own healing abilities. It promotes a feeling of calmness and well being.

My study of Shiatsu began in 1982. Since the 1990’s I was the only Shiatsu Soceity registered teacher and practitioner in Worcestershire (MRSS(T)). Now instead, I belong to the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT), the largest body for Holistic Therapists in the UK.

Treatment cost – £45.00 per hour.

Each session is different according to the needs and capability of the client. Normally the session will take place with the client lying or sitting on a padded mat on the floor, although a chair can be used when necessary.  During a session the client remains fully clothed. The initial consultation takes about two hours.  Subsequent sessions take an hour.
