What you'll do

Long time ago, Asian healers were expected to know eight levels of healing and to become skilled in the Five Excellences. These included techniques of self-development and self defence. The ancient masters realised the healing potential of human energy and saw it as a tool in helping others. The session itself takes place at floor level on a comfortable futon.. a brief chat at the start of the session, observation, palpation of the area located beneath the ribs and above the hips. Two meridians are chosen, one “empty” (kyo), the other “full” (jitsu) that resonate together. These are treated using gentle thumb, finger or even knee pressure. Sometimes where the flow may seem static or very weak, deep thumb pressure is applied; other areas where there is build up of ki, shaking chopping or rubbing is used. I will gently manipulate and ease joints before moving onto treating specific meridians and acupoints. Joints are also gently pulled and stretched to release stuck ki. Throughout the treatment I will be “listening” to the movement of energy, sensing it through my fingers and the responses within my own body. I will be there to facilitate change and movement at the emotional, mental and spiritual as well as physical level.
Other things to note
Shiatsu does not replace a medical treatment for specific pathology. It Is based on the oriental theory of energy for a natural wellness.

Enjoy getting away from the hustle and bustle of London for a while. A shiatsu treatment will leave your body and mind feeling lighter, calmer and more relaxed. Our bodies have incredible powers of self-healing but these abilities are often impaired due to mental and physical stress, lack of sleep, lack of exercise and poor diet. By finger pressing the acu-points and meridians, shiatsu can restore balance to the body, allowing it to heal itself. I came to Shiatsu through an interest in oriental health practices and energy work which started at the Shaolin Temple in London. I provide treatments, guidance and advice geared towards stimulating your vital strength and health. I will not heal you or bring you to a higher level of consciousness. You already have these powers within yourself. I am giving you support when you need it.

Where you'll be

I will conduct a Pure Shiatsu session in my Shiatsu Therapy studio in the back garden of my private House . I'll introduce you to the technique and I'll ask some questions about you in order to have some preliminary information which will help me during the treatment. Shiatsu is a restorative bodywork from Japan that uses a blend of stretch, pressure and movement to release deep tension and regain natural health.

I felt he was knowledgeable and listened to my concerns. I would recommend him. He made me feel very comfortable with the procedure.

I highly recommend the Shiatsu experience Jean-Philippe offers. It is an hour for you to connect with your body and let Jean-Philippe practice the Shiatsu techniques he masters. You will have time to relax and discuss before to start and at the end with Jean-Philippe the very peaceful music Jean-Philippe plays in the background add to the peacefulness of the experience. I left feeling very energised and vibrant with the feeling the energy shifted at the right place within my body.

I had a very good shiatsu session in a nice and relaxing atmosphere. This session helped relieve stress and made my tensions disappear. I came out of this session relaxed and full of energy. Jean-Philippe is a true professional who shares with passion his knowledge during treatment and who is always very attentive. I would recommend everyone to discover the benefits of this practice. I will surely do it again.
