Hi, I'm Gaelle and I'm a fully qualified and registered Shiatsu practitioner in Aberdeen , Scotland. I came to Shiatsu as a guinea pig over 9 years ago and I knew I had to learn it!
In 2014, I lost my flat and my Dad and found myself in a homeless bed and breakfast while my kids were living with their Dad. Luckily, I still had my job and used running as a tool to keep me sane. During that same year, I started to feel energy around me and enrolled into a Reiki training where I completed level 1 & 2. it is only at the start of 2016 that I enrolled into Shiatsu training with the Aberdeen School of Shiatsu. It has been 3 intensive years of training, waking up at 5am to revise, sweat and tears. But it has also been an incredible revelation, trusting my inner guidance, laughters, friendships and allignement . I now work part-time as a Shiatsu practitioner and offer Zen Shiatsu treatments face to face at the Urban Wellness Hub, in Bridge of Don. I also offer remote sessions. I truly believe that everything is energy and that flow can be restored to preserve health and wellbeing.
Treatment starts with a diagnosis done on the Hara (belly), after a consultation where questions are asked and medical history covered.
It is done through comfortable clothes on a futon ( "a mattress on the floor"), on a massage table or a chair) and last about an hour. Stretching, palming, rotations are used to release the flow of energy in the channels (meridians) that run through the body.
Shiatsu can help alleviate pain and restore body self ability to heal.
It is a powerful energetic body work.
It can help with back pain, sciatica, fibromyalgia, RSI, tendinitis just to name a few.
Bespoke aftercare recommendations are always provided using Traditional Chinese medicine, stretches, food, Qi gong etc...
Shiatsu is a complete practice that addresses the physical , emotional , mental and spiritual aspect of the person.
It is deeply relaxing yet energising.
