I am 3rd year student Shiatsu practitioner with the Northern School of Shiatsu. I am based and practising in Gairloch in the Scottish Highlands.

I am an experienced Shiatsu practitioner in Bristol. I trained for 3 years with the Bristol School of shiatsu, also a yoga teacher, masseuse and nutritional therapist.  I will soon be fully qualified to offer kinesiology as well.

I offer Shiatsu from:  

  • The Wellbeing Therapy Rooms, Hamilton House, 80 Stokes Croft, BS1 3QY
  • The Practice Rooms, 24 Regent Street, Clifton, BS8 4HG or 39 Cotham Hill, Bristol, BS6 6JY
  • I also do home/office visits and am available for events.

As well as encouraging you to relax deeply and access your innate capacity for healing I also seek to empower you to take control of your life and your own wellbeing. I will share my knowledge of healing through breathing techniques, nutrition, meditation etc. Healing for me is the movement back to wholeness or integration of what seem like fragmented parts of our Being.  It involves acknowledging the hidden and perhaps more ‘uncomfortable’ aspects of ourselves and welcoming them as part of our authentic self. Each experience of Shiatsu is unique.

I also specialise in Shiatsu for Pregnancy, Childbirth and Post-Natal Recovery.

Shiatsu is wonderfully supportive for a woman journeying through the different stages of pregnancy. It can be applied safely and effectively to support a woman to feel at ease physically, mentally and emotionally. Shiatsu may provide relief from nausea, lower backache, shoulder tension, difficulties in breathing, constipation, anxiety, oedema, post-natal depression and fatigue. I have studied pregnancy Shiatsu with Suzanne Yates from the Wellmother School and have supported a number of women during pregnancy and beyond and found it to be very nourishing and beneficial.

Please feel free to contact me for an informal 10 minute chat. We can then organise a session for you.

Details of my special offers can be found on my website.

Testimonials:

“I have suffered with IBS for years and after finding prescribed medication and diet change was not working I looked into alternative therapies. I had 5 sessions of shiatsu and have found it to have had an enourmous effect on my symptoms. It has made me understand the connection between my emotions, largely stress and worry, and the issues with my stomach.Shiatsu with Lioba gave me the tools to learn to relax and to break the connection between negative emotions and my physical well being. It was the first time I had ever had shiatsu and knew very little about it but I would most definately have treatments again. After the treatments having such a profound effect on my symptoms“ – Cath, Support Worker (Bristol)

Lioba has an amazing gift for body work. I always leave the room feeling lighter, unburdened and with energy flowing again. She creates a wonderfully warm and safe space to open up. As an asthmatic she has helped me become more in tune with the areas of my body which can become tense and cause my asthma to worsen. I wholeheartedly recommend Lioba“. (Heg, singer-songwriter, Bristol)

My first Shiatsu massage was blissfully relaxing. I left feeling affected in a deep way, very different to how I feel when I normally receive a massage. I’m certain to return.” Richie, Engineer (Melbourne)

Lioba’s Shiatsu sessions are thorough, personal and friendly and she combines great knowledge with intelligent hands. There is always plenty of good advice, reassurance and never any pressure to come back. I feel qualified to thoroughly recommend her treatments“- Rupert, Sports Massage Therapist (Bristol)

 

I have a degree in Complementary & Holistic Therapies and have been a qualified Shiatsu Practitioner for 12 years in private practice and with Derby Women’s Centre. Emanating from my work at the Women’s Centre was a desire to deepen my practice working with trauma so I undertook a PGdip in Person Centred & Experiential Psychotherapy.  I have a deeply held belief that therapies should be affordable for all. In response to this belief and passion I have set up Elephant Rooms, a ‘not for profit’ social enterprise venture in Draycott, Derbyshire specialising in the provision of a safe and tranquil environment for the promotion of community health and wellbeing.  The vision is:

To provide a diverse range of natural therapies, classes and workshops promoting health and wellbeing for the local community.
The objective is to provide something for everyone; a wide range of therapies and treatments across the spectrum focused on natural health and wellbeing.

Shiatsu is a physical therapy that supports and strengthens the body’s natural ability to heal and balance itself. It works on the whole person – not just with the physical body, but also with the psychological, emotional and spiritual aspects of being.

Shiatsu originated in Japan from traditional Chinese medicine, with influences from more recent Western therapies. Although Shiatsu means ‘finger pressure’ in Japanese, in practice a practitioner uses touch, comfortable pressure and manipulative techniques to adjust the body’s physical structure and balance its energy flow. It is a deeply relaxing experience and regular treatments can alleviate stress and illness and maintain health and well-being.

I trained for 3 years at the Northern School of Shiatsu.

 

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.

A Shiatsu practitioner with over 20 years’ experience of healing therapies. These include Shiatsu, EFT and the Release Technique. I also studied Chetana Chakra Therapy with Dr Kurup in South India. I developed ‘The Breakthrough Programme’ which grew out of my interest in how we store negative patterns within ourselves.

A highly qualified Shiatsu practitioner based at Chipping Norton Health Centre. Trained with the Bristol School of Shiatsu and completed a 3-year diploma course.

I have been involved in complementary medicine for nearly 30 years. In the 1980’s I suffered from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and it was the discovery of Five Element Acupuncture that put me on the road to recovery. This was the event that changed my life and my direction. After training in 5 Element Acupuncture I continued my education with Chinese Herbal Medicine, Shiatsu, Spiritual Healing, Shamanism and more. I was searching for the “missing link,” something that could integrate and make sense of the various therapies that I work with. 

My wish is to provide a space for you to access your own unique connection and to enable you to contact your own sources of healing and empowerment

Also trained in Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Emotional Therapy, Spiritual Healing, Reiki, Flower Essence Therapy, and a Qigong teacher. Currently undertaking training to become a yoga teacher and a Laser Teacher.
