Shiatsu is an acupressure massage that is generally performed with the client fully clothed. Specific massage techniques and stretches and movements help release tension in muscles and joints and restores full body movement. It also helps ease tension headaches, breathing and digestive problems. It is a great way to relax body and mind.

During the first session there will be a consultation to find out what you would like to get out of the session. Do please wear lose fitting, comfortable clothes.


When your body is out of balance, be it physical or mental and emotional, you feel either pain or discomfort.  Even if you have a problem with one of these it will have an effect on the others.

Acupuncture can help to bring you back to balance so you feel healthy, pain free and well.  It can help with a wide variety of conditions such as anxiety, insomnia, hay fever and sinusitis, headaches, muscle and joint pain, women’s health, fertility and general pain relief.

During the first session we will go through a detailed consultation, taking into account your general health and lifestyle, followed by a treatment.  There are no negative side effects from acupuncture, only positive ones. After a few sessions people generally feel more relaxed, sleep better and their digestion improves, even if they didn’t come specifically for these issues.

Annetta has been practising shiatsu for over 15 years. She qualified with the Ki Kai Shiatsu School in London. She works privately as well as in the drug and alcohol services.

She is also a yoga teacher and acupuncturist. She loves somatic, body-based practices and all of these disciplines inform her shiatsu practice.
