shiatsu & acutonics
“I completed my Shiatsu Masters in 2016, with Keith Phillips and the pregnancy Shiatsu course at Wellmother with Suzanne Yates. Since the first shiatsu treatment I received I haven’t looked back. Shiatsu continues to amaze, inspire and meet mine and others needs. It eases the energy flow within you, supporting you to notice parts of yourself that may feel stuck or less connected and to find what you need on the surface and internally.”
My Shiatsu practice is based in East London, very close to Hackney Downs station. I offer treatments on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
What is shiatsu? What is acutonics?
Acutonics incorporates the use of precision-calibrated medical tuning forks, which are applied on or over the specific acupressure points used in shiatsu. Find out more info on acutonics here.
How can they benefit you?
These hands-on physical therapies let you relax deeply, allowing your mind to become clear, and your body to move and breathe more freely, easing out aches and shifting emotional stagnation.
These treatments can be particularly helpful for back/neck/shoulder pain, stress-related symptoms, migraines, digestive problems, and issues around sleep.
I also give treatments that address issues around menstruation and symptoms that arise during pregnancy.
What is my approach?
I use an interactive and collaborative approach, involving you in open dialogue and listening while using movement, stretches, acupressure points, sounds (acutonic tuning forks), breath and massage techniques to treat the whole of you. The aim is to ease the energy flow within you, supporting you to notice parts of yourself that may feel stuck or less connected and to find what you need.
What to expect from a treatment?
You will lie fully clothed on a futon on the floor. Shiatsu is a non invasive hands on
treatment. You may feel very relaxed, many people fall into a sleep like state. Some people describe feeling warm and tingling sensations and see visuals akin to meditation.

What is Shiatsu?
Shiatsu is a form of Japanese bodywork and a healing art. The theory behind it evolves from a Japanese massage modality and the tradition of Chinese medicine the same 'root' as acupuncture. Its Zen influences brings focus towards self-reflection and listening to our intuition. Taoists believe a sign of illness in the body can be traced back to the lack of movement or a blockage in our energetic pathways (meridians). Shiatsu brings a smooth flow of qi to blockages when finger pressure is applied to the matrix of meridians. The word shiatsu translates to "finger pressure".
What is Acutonics?
Acutonics incorporates the use of precision-calibrated medical tuning forks, which are applied on or over the specific acupressure points used in Shiatsu. The sound waves of the forks vibrate and travel deeply into the body along meridians. Their rich resonance and vibration connects with and supports the body's natural frequencies, stimulates and balances the body's physical and subtle energy field.
Acutonics embraces both ancient wisdom traditions and new paradigms in health while remaining firmly based in science and strongly supported by case study research. Find out more about acutonics here
