Shiatsu with Dinah is a truly relaxing experience. I was so at ease I fell asleep! A great stress release!
All treatments start with a discussion where you can tell us what you are hoping to gain from shiatsu. The actual bodywork is done on a futon on the floor, and we will use a combination of stretching, movement and massage techniques. Shiatsu is received fully clothed.
Please wear loose, warm clothing with a long-sleeved top (a tracksuit is ideal), and socks.
It is different for everyone. The principles of shiatsu mean we apply as much pressure as is needed for the treatment, although, at times the pressure can be very deep (akin to deep tissue massage), at other times, the pressure applied is very gentle.
No. Shiatsu is a customised therapy. The treatments are different every time, and reflect the needs of your body at the time of the treatment.
Shiatsu is a holistic therapy that treats your whole self (body, mind and spirit) energetically and physically. Shiatsu involves some massage techniques and stretches, but the treatment is received fully clothed and no oils are used.
For chronic conditions, 5 or 6 weekly treatments are usually needed to see some benefit. For more acute conditions, or just general health and wellbeing, an occasional shiatsu is fine.
We are more than happy to visit you and offer mobile shiatsu in Harrow, Pinner, Hatch End and surrounding areas in Middlesex. Book a treatment now.
We welcome personal cheques (and cash). Unfortunately we cannot yet accept payments by credit card.
If your child is under 16 years old, the parent must provide written consent for the child to receive shiatsu. (It is illegal for such treatment to replace medical treatment from his or her GP, though.)
We recommend you check with your GP first whether it is advisable to receive bodywork.
Shiatsu is not appropriate if you feel you are coming down with a cold or are feverish, or are in the first trimester of pregnancy. If you have varicose veins or bruising or an injury, please mention the location before treatment begins.
Feel free to contact us with any other questions. We will be happy to answer you.
