Shiatsu Health Point Shiatsu Practitioner giving a treatment

✨”How you described the lungs/rib cage being like the wings of the heart resonated in me, so maybe that’s why I’m breathing better? I felt everything softening, and I’ve had a guard up around my heart for a very long time.”✨

☁️Join us for an evening of relaxation and restoration with yoga teacher and bodywork practitioner Rachel Whaley and shiatsu practitioners Beth Cooper of Seven Hills Shiatsu, Jacqui Burton of Sshh Shiatsu and Michelle Baker.

☁️The evening begins at 6:30pm with a welcome gathering to settle in to the cosy yoga studio and to complete a consultation forms for your practitioner. You can have a little peak at the treatment room and find your perfect spot in the fairy lit, cosy main studio. By 7pm there will begin a 2-hour restorative yoga session lead by Rachel, involving deep relaxation, breathing techniques, guided yoga nidra style visualisations, accompanied by quartz singing bowls and kochi chimes.

☁️During the yoga session, at your designated time you will be quietly lead into studio 2 where you can receive your 25-minute shiatsu treatment. 

☁️We wanted to create an evening of self-care, in which people could experience multi-therapies and the effects they have on the nervous system. 

☁️Often therapies complement each other. In this case, a guided yoga practice sits perfectly with shiatsu, offering similar calming effects on the nervous system. Restorative yoga focuses completely on ease, using carefully placed props the weight is taken off the body and distributed in different ways across the support to allow a person to surrender and yield the weight of the body and mind. In shiatsu, the practitioner holds and manipulates the body, aiding the flow of Qi (energy) throughout the systems to encourage better functioning and balance. 
In both practices, the aim for the individual is to relax deeply and allow oneself to be held. This process enables relaxation to deepen and become restorative. This is when the nervous system is soothed, tension is unravelled and connective tissue (fascia) and muscle memory, over time, can renew and heal.

☁️Expect better sleep, reduced pain and feelings of peace and calm. 

☁️The aim of this workshop is to give others a chance to experience the benefits of deep relaxation and the importance of self care and to promote the magic of these practices. 

❤️?Nourishing tea, baobab lemonade, raw plant based bliss balls and slices will be available before and after the practice to give you a boost for your journey home. 

✨All welcome

Both the yoga and shiatsu will be tailored to suit all individuals. Please just let us know beforehand your situation.

??‍♀️Rachel is pregnancy specialised, working with pre-and postnatal stages of motherhood in yoga and in her work as a shiatsu practitioner. This workshop is inclusive of all men, woman and will be modified to suit Mums-to-be in 2nd and 3rd trimesters.

I began my Shiatsu journey in 2015, enrolling on the Foundation Course with the Northern School of Shiatsu in Sheffield. I had received a single Shiatsu treatment from a friend who was completing the three-year Diploma and I was instantly intrigued. The treatment felt wonderful, and was different from anything I had experienced.

I was drawn to the process of self-development and self-healing that Shiatsu could offer me. I graduated from the Northern School in 2018 and therefore have over three years’ experience giving and receiving this restorative and unique form of therapy. From January to July 2018, I undertook a voluntary placement at the Well Women Centre in Wakefield, allowing women on a low income to access treatment they would not ordinarily be able to experience. In August 2018 I became the third Director of In Touch Massage and Holistic Therapies CIC, a social enterprise which aims to make holistic therapies accessible to everyone, including minority, socially excluded and low income groups.

I am constantly developing the practical and theoretical application of Shiatsu, and my knowledge, confidence and professionalism are growing at a remarkable speed. My professional background prior to discovering Shiatsu was very varied. I worked in the fields of publishing, communications, international relations, mental health, housing, advocacy, law and education.

I live in Morley in south Leeds and I have a two-year-old baby girl.
