Hi, I'm Gaelle, I'm a mom and I'm a fully qualified and registered Shiatsu practitioner in Aberdeen , Scotland. I came to Shiatsu as a guinea pig over 10 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 preserve my sanity. 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, full of sweat and tears but it has also been an incredible journey, trusting my inner guidance, laughters, friendshipsand allignement .
I now work as a Shiatsu practitioner and offer Zen Shiatsu treatments face to face in Aberdeen city and Stonehaven.
Distant sessions are also available.
In 2022, I joined Aberdeen School of Shiatsu as a graduate assistant, and Im now part of the Teachers as a Teacher trainee.
