shiatsu for treating cancer and chronic conditions


Our approach to treating people with cancer and chronic disease lies with supporting the primary energies of the body. We do this by working with what is known in Traditional Chinese Medicine as the eight Extraordinary Vessels which are the first energetic pathways to develop at conception.


During each treatment particular attention is given to the Extraordinary Vessels because they are the regulators of all energy in and around the body.


Shiatsu massage can help relieve the symptoms associated with cancer and chronic disease such as nausea, vomiting and insomnia, muscular pain, fatigue, anxiety and low mood.

Regular treatments can help you to strengthen a positive relationship with your body and bring about feelings of wellness and relaxation and each treatment offers a place of support, comfort and safety.


As always our Shiatsu treatments can incorporate oil massage to soothe the tissues and muscles and bring about a sense of relief.


A client's reflection on her experience of shiatsu for her chronic  illness...

"working regularly with Gillian for over 5 years now has brought me to a place of deep atunement with my body & my long term illness. I am able to manage my energy in an intuitive way which has lessened my symptoms & enhanced both my physical & mental well-being. In every session I have deepened my learning & self care. I have huge gratitude to both her & myself for doing this Shiatsu practice".
