“I am working for NHS with Covid patients, and find this work very supportive and calming.”
“Invaluable for self care and righting my boat.”
It is a series of six one-to-one Shiatsu treatments for a minimal donation, followed by the offer of a fully funded place on a 5 week Qigong course – aimed at supporting women’s health, and providing self-help skills.
In Shiatsu, our experience, over many years, has been that women come with symptoms such as insomnia, depression, anxiety, PMT, Menopausal or other hormonal problems, during or post Cancer treatment, joint pain, exhaustion, and fatigue. If these symptoms are not addressed early they can lead to more serious long-term health issues.
The project aims to help women to feel supported in their health, increasing resilience and giving an opportunity for empowerment through self-help skills, having a positive impact on long term health.
“Receiving regular shiatsu treatment … is an essential and transformative source of support for me, living with secondary cancer and the effects of ongoing cancer treatment.”
For some time, through chatting to clients, it has been clear that, although lots of women need and want treatment and want to become more responsible for their own health, many can’t afford it, and feel their health suffers accordingly.
This project is born from these conversations.
The group was held with care, expertise and attention. I felt strengthened and grounded by the practice, and felt like I was being invited to explore the wisdom of my female body. These are practices I could easily integrate into my life, which is empowering.
