Relieve pain, rebalance & relax
Stress permeates every aspect of our lives and produces all sorts of unwanted symptoms such as:
- panic attacks, anxiety and low mood
- low energy and lack of enthusiasm for life
- feeling run down and not quite yourself
- aches and pains in our necks, backs, shoulders & hips
- headaches and general all over body aches
No matter what age you are, if you think you are feeling the results of stress in your body Shiatsu can help you. I’m passionate about reducing stress in the mind and body. I see a wide range of people in my clinics and focus on helping you to live your life with ease.
I just think that Dee has magic hands. I always know I have someone to come to, to help when things get stressful.

Life flows smoothly when we slow down
Are you living a version of this?
You’re taking care of the kids. You’re getting on with your to-do lists, both home and work.
It’s all good, you think, I can do this.
You complete another course, get another certificate, take on more responsibility at work. You’re on fire! Well done!
That’s a bit stressful actually but hey, it’s all good, you think, I can do this……everyone else seems to manage fine so I must be able to too.
Although I do feel a bit tired, a little bit achy… and when is the last time I did yoga/went for a run?
No, never-mind!It’s the weekend soon, I can relax then.
Well, after I take the kids to football, ballet, fun dance…
You think – ‘Gosh, I don’t know why I’m feeling so tired lately?! and I just can’t get rid of this headache. I’ve had it for days’
Next weeks diary is looking a bit full, but hey I wanted this right?
Can’t really complain.
So why do I feel so empty all the time…when did that happen
…and my body is so sore…
You know what, I feel rotten actually.
I think I feel pretty rotten all the time.
Huh – When did that happen…?
But hey, it’s all good. I can do this. I have to do this. No one else will.
I said I could do this.
Until You Can’t!
Until you start to feel so overloaded and overwhelmed that nothing really seems worth bothering with.
You actually start to feel like you want to just give up.
There is no JOY in anything anymore.
If life is looking and feeling a bit like this for you then it’s beyond time you took care of yourself.
With over 13 years experience if I can help someone create movement and flow in their minds and bodies so they can feel better and have more freedom in their life then I’m happy.
So what is Shiatsu?
It’s a holistic complementary therapy that uses touch to create ideal conditions for self-healing, encouraging physical and emotional health & well-being.
I combine acupressure, massage, flowing movement and joint rotations to disperse tension, reduce pain, promote relaxation and healthy functioning of body systems (circulation, breathing, digestion…).
Shiatsu massage soothes and connects deeply with the nervous system, helping you feel whole again and easing out those tense and tight areas that hold your fears, stresses and worries. Bringing you to an awareness of where your body carries the overload and feels the exhaustion.
Shiatsu allows you the space to untangle yourself emotionally, physically and spiritually from the never-ending demands and other ‘stuff’ that clutters up life and has perhaps been getting you down.
Shiatsu is deeply relaxing and is known for being more than a massage as it works with your body’s energy pathways to create real change.
Dee never just provides the ‘usual’ treatment and it feels like she really thinks about me as an individual. Dee has a warm and kind approach; very skilful in shiatsu
Ms Nicola P, Counsellor & CBT therapist
The pressure points used are the same as those used in acupuncture, but there are no needles involved. The treatment is received through clothes on a massage table.
How will I feel afterwards?
Immediately after the session you may feel less stressed and achy, or you might feel relaxed, rejuvenated and full of bounce. The effects are individual and change over time, for example, you may be sleepy immediately after the session, then full of energy in the next few days.
I aim to encourage flow of energy, to get you un-stuck, physically, mentally and emotionally. It is a perfectly normal part of the healing process to feel tired and perhaps a bit emotional after your first few sessions so you may wish to have a quiet day ahead of you to allow any healing to take place. With bit of time and rest my clients report that they find themselves in a much better place physically and emotionally and that is certainly my experience as a receiver. I am very happy to discuss any concerns and offer guidance.
Is Shiatsu for me?
I help women (and some men) overcome overwhelm , stress and anxiety in any area of their lives so they can feel more ‘like my old self again’ and live a more balanced, ease filled life.
Overwhelm and stress can show up in the body in many ways; stiffness, aches, pains and headaches being just the tip of the iceberg.
Feeling stuck, depressed and unsure where to turn can be debilitating. Shiatsu is a great place to start to heal. Especially if you don’t yet feel ready to talk. Shiatsu with me can help get you that place where you now feel able to reach out and take your healing further and when you do I can help you with that too if you like.
Do I need to come regularly to get any benefit?
I like to take my clients on a journey back to feeling great. If you’ve been experiencing emotional or physical pain for a long while then it will take some time to shift the energy and help you back into balance.
I normally see new clients once every week or two for a while. The aim being to help get you to a point where you feel able to cope without it. Of course most people still come once they feel better because they love it so much!
If you’re feeling pretty good and just fancy a deeply relaxing massage then a one off session is fine.
When I first came to Dee for Shiatsu it was the only thing that kept me going. It’s so relaxing, and I always feel so much better after
