Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese therapy that has its roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

 Shiatsu uses the same system as acupuncture but no needles are used- it is an extremely relaxing treatment that can help you fully unwind.

Shiatsu is a form of Japanese bodywork therapy that involves applying pressure to specific points on the body using the thumbs, fingers, palms, elbows, or knees. The word "shiatsu" translates to "finger pressure" in Japanese.

Rooted in traditional Chinese medicine principles, particularly those of acupuncture, shiatsu aims to balance the flow of energy, or "qi" (pronounced "chee"), within the body's meridians or energy pathways. Practitioners believe that when the flow of qi is disrupted or imbalanced, it can lead to physical or emotional ailments. By applying pressure to specific points along the body's meridians, shiatsu is thought to promote relaxation, alleviate stress, relieve tension, and support overall well-being.

Shiatsu sessions typically take place on a floor mat or a futon and may involve gentle stretching and joint manipulation in addition to pressure point therapy. It's often performed fully clothed, making it accessible and comfortable for many people.

A full body massage is a therapeutic practice where a massage therapist manipulates the soft tissues of the entire body to promote relaxation, relieve muscle tension, improve circulation, and enhance overall well-being. During a full body massage, the therapist typically addresses areas such as the back, neck, shoulders, arms, legs, and feet, employing various massage techniques.

The session usually begins with the client lying face down on a massage table, although some variations might involve sitting or lying in different positions. The therapist applies oil or lotion to the skin to reduce friction and may use their hands, fingers, elbows, forearms, to deliver different levels of pressure and manipulation.

The goal of a full body massage is not only physical relaxation but also mental and emotional relaxation, providing a holistic experience that promotes stress relief and rejuvenation.

Shiatsu uses the same system as acupuncture but no needles are used- it is an extremely relaxing treatment that can help you fully unwind. Shiatsu can help to support a wide range of health conditions- both physical and mental. The practitioner does an initial 'diagnosis'- identifying the 'meridians' that are most out of balance. The treatment is then a balancing act of tonifying some areas of the body, and releasing other areas using finger pressure. This helps to reduce pain and other types of discomfort. Shiatsu is energy based but it is also a form of bodywork, and varying degrees of pressure can be used. The practitioner- a little like a perfume maker who has trained their nose for smell, is experienced in sensing where there are blockages and deficient areas within the body. Shiatsu works on all levels of a person- the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual.

Shiatsu is suitable for anyone. People come for treatments as maintenance or to address a particular health condition or issue in their life. Shiatsu is suitable for any age - under 18s must have consent from a parent or guardian.

Treatments are fully clothed. We begin with a consultation and a diagnosis to check which ‘meridians’ are out of balance. Sometimes time is spent in talking therapy, using various counselling techniques if there is a particular issue that the client wishes to discuss. The client then relaxes on the mat and the practitioner will use varying pressures to give a relaxing and healing treatment. The ‘post Shiatsu’ feeling is difficult to describe but there is a lovely feeling of being more relaxed, grounded and in balance

Some people come for one off treatments, some people come on a regular basis for maintenance and others come for a block of treatments to address a particular condition.

Bring something loose and comfortable to change into if possible.

From The People

His knowledge in his specialist fields and beyond, have helped me so much with the issues I have had. I have gone in with pain and he's instantly known what the problem is and put it right whilst explaining how/what's caused it. The combination of being extremely accomplished in both osteopathy and cranio sacral therapy is a gold dusted godsend. I always feel completely at ease and completely confident when going to Ross with issues.

Ross has been nothing more than an exemplary osteopath for me and everyone I have recommended him too. After resolving my Long standing back and neck issues I can not recommend him any higher than I do.Super calming and soothing space which enables you to feel safe and relaxed.

— Leon Cook

After 6months of pain in my shoulder. I attended Ross' clinic. It was a very provisional and calm environment. After explaining my issues i had been suffering Ross was able to diagnosis and fix the problem. There was no pressure of a follow up visit as Ross was confident I was now sorted... and he was right. Cannot recommend this guy high enough. Cheers

Had the most amazing experience at Mae, was my first time getting any type of filler and I had been following the clinic online for a while. I went with lead technician Danielle and she was a dream start to finish, made me feel so at ease and comfortable not to mention my results were more than I could have wished for! Not only are you paying for the work carried out but the whole vibe and aesthetic of the clinic is beautiful which feels like a luxury, worth every penny. Love everything they offer and what they stand for; looking forward to returning cannot recommend enough!
