Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese healing art. The practitioner uses pressure, rocking and stretching to rebalance the client’s energy and help the healing process.
What is Shiatsu used for?Would you like to

Shiatsu can help in all these ways and more!
Shiatsu is a very versatile approach that can be used if you are in good health, recovering from injury, dealing with ongoing health conditions or looking for support during challenging life events.
We have experience of working with clients with a wide range of symptoms, such as back pain, neck and shoulder tension, sciatica, joint pain and reduced mobility, postural inbalance, headaches and migraines, digestive problems, anxiety and depression, fatigue, menopausal symptoms and symptoms associated with pregnancy.
What to expect from a session
Each session lasts one hour. The initial consultation may take up to one-and-a-half hours. This is so we have time to get to know each other and discuss aspects of your health and life circumstances that might be relevant to your shiatsu treatment. The treatment usually takes place on a futon on the floor or we can also work with you seated, if lying down is difficult. Shiatsu is done through the clothes, so it is a good idea to wear loose comfortable clothing. After a treatment, allow yourself time to relax and have a drink before you leave.
We have two Shiatsu practitioners at Bodywise in Manchester: Arthaketu (m) works on Saturdays and Hannah works on Wednesdays.
Initial appointment £52
Follow-up appointment £40
