Surrey Shiatsu, Chi Nei Tsang and Meridian Massage
Relaxing bodywork to restore your natural balance
Harmony for body and mind
Welcome to Surrey Shiatsu, Chi Nei Tsang and Meridian Massage. How do you feel today?
Holistic bodywork approaches each individual as a whole person and there are no ‘off the shelf’ treatments. While each therapy can offer effective relief from discomfort and help to ease chronic conditions, you don’t need to be unwell or in pain to benefit from a treatment. Whether you would like a treatment for a specific issue or purely for relaxation, the session is tailored to you. I can also introduce simple meditations from the Taoist tradition and mindfulness meditation, either as part of a bodywork treatment or a dedicated meditation session.
Treatments are available at Optima Health in Cobham on Sundays and Mondays. For more information see the brief introductions below, visit the treatment pages listed above or call me for a free consultation.
Shiatsu, meaning ‘finger-pressure’ in Japanese, is an enjoyable, holistic way to alleviate many common complaints, physical and mental tensions. Shiatsu is given fully clothed and works with your whole body to restore balance and maintain health. Pressure points, movement and gentle stretches are combined in a treatment that gives you the benefits of acupuncture, yoga and meditation. All you need to do is lie down and let go of your stress.
Chi Nei Tsang (or Hara Shiatsu) is abdominal massage which connects deeply but gently with your centre to release tension and balance the flow of energy. Chi Nei Tsang is given directly on the skin of the abdomen while you remain fully clothed. Our abdomens are busy places; our organs as well as our vascular, lymphatic, nervous and fascia-tendon-muscular systems all respond to the physical and emotional stresses of life. In addition to receiving Chi Nei Tsang, during treatments you will learn effective meditations from the Taoist tradition and hands-on ways of restoring your balance.
Meridian Massage is a full-body oil massage combining the flowing strokes of traditional massage with the energy meridian and pressure point connections of Shiatsu. Effective and nurturing, Meridian Massage releases physical tension and reduces aches and pains while gently calming the mind. The treatment is given on a massage couch with towels to keep you warm and comfortable, and I use organic aroma-therapeutic essential oil blends from Neal’s Yard Remedies for added benefit. You can choose which blend appeals to you most on the day.
