A healing art

Shiatsu is a form of massage that evolved from the acupuncture system in China and was fully developed in Japan. It is a healing art in which the practitioner uses fingers, thumbs, palms, and sometimes elbows and knees to massage the receiver and induce a deep feeling of relaxation and wellbeing. It is both calming and energising, and regular treatments help the receiver stay in the best of health. 

In common with acupuncture and other Oriental therapies, shiatsu addresses the client’s specific condition and views the bodymind as a holistic organism. Acupuncture points and meridians are manipulated without needles to re-balance the energetic system.

 

A natural boost

While body and mind tend to be viewed in the West as separate entities, In the East they are understood as a unified whole. This is why we feel butterflies in our stomach when we are nervous, and feel our blood boil when we are angry. 

Shiatsu may be enjoyed for simple pleasure – it is a great way to take time out and relax back into yourself – and it is also helpful in dealing with e.g. stress, insomnia, digestive problems, muscle aches and pains, and chronic fatigue. Regular shiatsu promotes general health and provides the immune system with a natural boost.

 

 

 

 

Testimonials

 

I have had many massages over the years and must say that Donny is by far the best at delievring exactly what is needed at any given time. I recently had very traumatic surgery and was suffering with a lot of stress, after seeing Donny I felt as though he had unwound my mind and body so that I could feel myself again. – Victoria Clark, Holistic Therapist, UK

 

One day, when I was tired and fed up with a lot of things, somebody asked me: “What do you need?”. Straight from the bottom of my heart I replied: ”A shiatsu massage from Donny“. He nodded and said: Why don’t you go then? ”Well, I said, that is not so easy. He lives in Helsinki“. “Why not?”, he replied.
That evening I booked a flight and 5 days later I was in Helsinki for a shiatsu massage. 
It balanced my body, brought me down to earth and opened some extra windows in my mind. I would do it again! – Christina, Holland

 

Donny creates a really safe space in which healing can take place. Having received Shiatsu from him I was aware of his presence with me, his confidence, sensitivity and skill. After the treatments I have always found my body more flexible, my pain lessened considerably, and my energy flowing beautifully.  - Jules Harrington, Ireland

 

Don’s treatment is so concrete and holistic that it’s not easy to find words to describe it. He appreciates me and my body as they are, and listens to what he hears without making any extra assumptions. For me it is really important that the healing space is free from preconceptions: I can relax completely and that already helps my mind and body to heal, which is not the case with all healers in my experience.
