  Shiatsu massage treatment – Paul Bridle DS FGSP MRSS(t)    

Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese healing art, a physical therapy which supports and strengthens the body's natural ability to heal and balance itself. It works on the whole person, both the physical and emotional.

It is based on traditional Chinese medicine, using the same theory, points and channels as Acupuncture with influences from recent Western therapies. However, no needles are used, making Shiatsu the perfect alternative to Acupuncture

Shiatsu means 'finger pressure' in Japanese. The practitioner uses touch, comfortable pressure, massage and soft manipulative techniques which adjust the body's physical structure and balance its energy flow.

A deeply relaxing experience, regular treatments can alleviate stress and illness and maintain health and well-being. It can help in a wide range of conditions, from specific injuries to more general symptoms of poor health.

Shiatsu takes place on a padded mat at floor level, although it is possible to receive Shiatsu whilst seated.

You remain fully clothed at all times. 


Paul Bridle has been a practitioner / teacher for over 25 years. He has worked with Shiatsu in private practice and for a variety of companies including a National Festival Theatre, and a charitable organisation. He has also taught Shiatsu, Oriental Medicine, Therapeutic Massage and Aromatherapy.
