Shiatsu treatment training

Gifted Shiatsu practitioner Rachel Nicolle will be offering Shiatsu taster treatments at the Mind Body Spirit fair in Dereham on 19th October. Free entry.

An excellent opportunity for you to receive a Shiatsu treatment and ask questions about your health/issues as well as about Shiatsu.

About Rachel

Rachel came to Shiatsu in mid-life which has allowed her to devote time and enthusiasm to this fascinating therapy over the last 20 years. She gained her diploma at a branch of a British college in Athens where she lived at the time, and since then has done many postgraduate courses in the UK. She finds enormous fulfilment in practising Shiatsu, and also enormous fulfilment in continually learning more about this ancient art.

Rachel is enthusiastic about Shiatsu as it is a holistic therapy treating the whole being, both physical and emotional, simultaneously.

In the West these two aspects of our being are usually separated but in Chinese Medicine we are considered to be one entity. However this is still recognised in the language we use – for example ‘A raging headache’, ‘Sick at heart’, ‘Shouldering responsibility’, and ‘Can’t stand it’ are some of the phrases we use naturally without analysing that our headache, malaise, stiff shoulders or backache may have emotional connections. It is very gratifying when Shiatsu clients depart not only with greater physical wellbeing but with greater emotional wellbeing as well.

Rachel has a private practice in her home on the North Norfolk coast near Holt, Cromer, and Sheringham where she has lived for some years now. With a private practice at her home she can be flexible in her hours sometimes working at weekends or early or late hours if needed.
