Relaxing style of bodywork,
fully dressed on a futon.

In a Shiatsu treatment, you lie on a comfortable Japanese style futon on the floor, fully dressed, covered by a blanket and supported by pillows and bolsters where needed. Your body will slow down and reach a full state of relaxation. You will stay warm and comfortable while the ambient temperature is adjusted according to your needs.

With Shiatsu, the body and its nervous system slows down and allows
deeper healing to take place.

SCENAR Therapy

SCENAR is a highly effective
form of pain relief

The SCENAR is an TGA approved electro-therapy device and can be used in conjunction with Shiatsu massage therapy. The SCENAR device can alleviate sensations of pain and discomfort.

The device is a nerve stimulator, placed on the skin and used to treat pain associated with surgery, trauma, bursitis, musculoskeletal or dental problems. It may also be used during labour.

SCENAR reconnects pain-affected areas back to the brain, so that the body can  repair and reduce the pain experience.

I am passionate about shiatsu, with its nourishing nature and subtle means of healing. In my clinic, I create a safe and nurturing surrounding for my clients. In my treatments, I facilitate the process of unblocking stagnation and unlocking the hidden inner healing potential.

I am a strong believer in the self-healing power of the body, with the healer being a facilitator of change. I thrive having a good report with my clients and seeing them leave with increased vitality and in great spirits.

For me self-care, good nutrition and gentle exercise are the keys to living life to its highest potential. I enjoy doing martial arts, yoga, qi gong and find joy in home cooking for my family.

Just wanted to say a big thank you for the Scenar treatment you administered on my twisted ankle. It was 80% better within minutes. This stuff really works. All the best with your therapy business.
