What to expect

What to expect

Shiatsu treatments are given with you fully clothed. It is therefore a good idea to wear loose and comfortable clothing. You are lying on a padded mat on the floor, or seated, depending on what is most comfortable for the client.

Treatments last normally 1 hour. For the fist treatment you will be asked questions regarding your health, medicine, symptoms and general wellbeing and therefore take a bit longer.

Please provide a complete and accurate health history.


A massage treatment should never be used as a substitute for medical treatment and a GP should be consulted first if there is any doubt about your suitability for Shiatsu.

I may ask for a letter by your GP if there are any major concerns such as ulcerations, injuries, blood clots and bone degenerative diseases in which we agree for the treatment to be carried out.
