Sarah Churcher DS.FwSS. is a registered Shiatsu Society practitioner working in South Shropshire and Powys from her home practice in Lydbury North and at Spiro clinic in Ludlow.
Shiatsu is a hands on style of bodywork, that focuses on supporting and nourishing the energy (Qi) flow within you. Chinese medicine theory and a knowledge of anatomy and physiology are used within the treatment, that takes into account how you are feeling physically, emotionally and your whole wellbeing.
The practitioner uses therapeutic 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.
Areas of pain and stiffness are encouraged to let go and release, areas experienced as depleted or weak gently held, with the focus to awaken the energy flow (Qi) throughout you, helping bring a sense of ease and renewed connection.
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 yourself and body.
All sessions with Sarah are received fully clothed on a massage couch/table. Treatments are received to support you physically, emotionally, addressing any pain you may be experiencing, for restorative relaxation and to support your wellbeing.
"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."
