Shiatsu for whom?

For you!

Shiatsu is for everyone. It does not matter if you are very thin or heavy set, whether you are gay or straight, what skin colour you have, whether young or old. Do you experience any feelings of shame or do you have doubts? Please feel free to contact me.

Children

For children suffering from either overweight, feelings of uncertainty or ADHD, Shiatsu massage can have a beneficial effect. During the massage there is a period of peace and undivided attention for the body, which brings a new experience for many children . Treatment of children is always done in close consultation with parents or caretakers.

Elderly persons

For many elderly people, personal attention and physical touch no longer are everyday matters and cannot be taken for granted. Shiatsu massage often has a relaxing and healing effect. People with the Alzheimer’s disease may also greatly enjoy this massage. If serious physical complaints exist, treatment can be adjusted accordingly: massage while sitting in a chair, wheelchair – even staying in bed is possible.
