"Shiatsu is a form of traditional Japanese bodywork which stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities by applying gentle pressure to points across the body. Shiatsu is a deeply relaxing experience.’" Shiatsu Society

Shiatsu influences ‘Moving Naturally’ Mat Movement sessions encouraging deep contact with the earth, gentle bodily reaches, self-massage and acupressure through the profound art of touch.



These sessions are influenced by  movement and somatic awareness. Participants are encouraged to connect with their breath, spontaneous movements and energetic sensations. They  take place on a padded mat, duvet or chair within  your own home. There are Skype/Zoom sessions  supporting participants through self-touch, acupressure and movement.  All are available to Moving Naturally participants at a cost of £50 for 90 minutes (Couples in same visit £45 each).


Participant’s Comments:

"My body feels so much better, less stiff, no pain across my lower back…haven’t needed to take Naproxen, I feel so much lighter and relaxed. Had a great night’s sleep. I am now learning to like and embrace my body."  Sheila Skinner
