Shiatsu

At the core of Watsu lies Shiatsu massage.

Shiatsu is the Japanese word for finger pressure. This ancient form of massage is based on traditional Chinese medicine and the five elements Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood. Through the art of touch, “finger pressure” and meridian stretches we can stimulate the body’s natural life force energy or “Chi” to help restore balance.

I have been honoured to study Shiatsu with Master Shinzo Fujimaki who is regarded as one of the foremost practitioners of Shiatsu in the Western world.

Traditionally performed on floor mats I mostly work with clients on a massage table which provides additional comfort and support.
Sessions are available in the comfort of my own studio in Haddington or home visits can be arranged. Please contact me for rates and availability.
