Sarah Churcher DS,FwSS is a qualified and experienced Shiatsu practitioner working in South Shropshire and Powys at practices in Shrewsbury, near Welshpool and at her home practice in Lydbury North (see about me page for full details).
Shiatsu is a japanese healing therapy that combines Chinese medicine theory with anatomy, physiology and pathology. The practitioner uses a hands on skilled touch to work with points and energy lines called meridians, with varying depths, movements and holding. The points and meridians are like a map on and into the body, showing the practitioner a clearer picture of how energy is flowing throughout you and where support is needed to encourage balance.
The touch used by the practitioner will be what you are comfortable with, never forcing or using any sudden depleting movements. Gentle stretches may be used, along with rotations of joints and limbs to bring you back in touch with your energy and release held, painful or stiff areas.
The Shiatsu practitioner meets areas within the body that could benefit from recieving attention and support, with the focus to awaken the energy flow (Qi) throughout you. This holistic therapy helps you connect with your body, mind and soul working together as one.
The Shiatsu session is a safe space that is confidential for you. Shiatsu is a style of bodywork that takes place fully clothed. Treatments with Sarah are recieved on a massage couch / table. It can be recieved to support you physically, emotionally, for relaxation and to maintain good health.
"The body remembers, the bones remember, the joints remember, even the little finger remembers. Memory is lodged in pictures and feelings in the cells themselves. Like a sponge filled with water, anywhere the flesh is pressed, wrung, or even touched lightly, a memory may flow out like a stream."
