Welcome to Shiatsu Healing with David Scott
About Shiatsu and how it works
Shiatsu gives deep tension release, grounding and support. It can help you to feel centred and rejuvenated, and to have a sense of ease and clarity. It is based on the Meridian (energy pathways) system of Chinese Medicine.
When our bodies start to feel different - when energy is flowing in new and different ways - we start to feel different in our lives, and the real causes of pain and illness are addressed.
Shiatsu is very beneficial for physical symptoms such as: muscular/skeletal problems; chronic pain; headaches; digestive problems; ongoing tiredness; sleeping problems. These issues may go hand-in-hand with life struggles and emotional distress, such as: feeling lost, stuck, or lacking purpose; difficulties relating to people; feeling down and depression; stress and anxiety. Shiatsu can be enormously helpful in this arena.
Shiatsu uses a mix of hand pressure, stretches, joint rotations, and acupressure points. If parts of your body are stressed and wound-up it is good for working these areas to release tension in a lasting way. If parts of your body are tired-out and collapsing it gives stillness and rejuvenation.
As a receiver, you will feel listened to, understood and supported. I am very attentive to the stories and meanings that are written in the body and the emotions that are held there. The body work is approached from an understanding that problems in our physical body can come about through struggles with the circumstances and relationships in our lives. The body is where we experience and process our emotions.
Treatments are not based on a set routine. I listen to what you express about how you feel and listen to what is going on in your body at the time, so the treatment is responsive to the moment and based on the reality of how you feel, so we can have a genuine and authentic connection.
