“Healing is an Inside job” Dr B J Palmer
Welcome to Jaynepshiatsu.
Shiatsu is a hands-on therapy from Japan, with roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
My aim is to help you find balance by reconnecting to the core of who you are-by letting go of what no longer serves you, so you can enjoy better health and live your best life in a natural and healthy way.
Sometimes reaching out and taking someone’s hand is the beginning of a journey. At other times, it is allowing another to take yours.
Bringing an open heart and mind, Jayne has an empathic way of working with people. She is able to step in to their shoes and understand what they are going through and where they would like to progress with their health and wellbeing goals.
Prior to training as a shiatsu practitioner Jayne was a community dance facilitator, working with people to develop their health and wellbeing through the medium of dance.
She moved in to assisting people improve their mobility through offering falls prevention programmes and, having long been interested in how our bodies work-the link between body, mind and emotions- felt she wanted to work more deeply, helping people achieve better mental, physical and emotional health through Shiatsu.
Jayne is a member of Shiatsu Society UK, peer mentor coordinator for shiatsu practitioners in North West, and will be working as a teaching assistant at Shiatsu College Manchester next year.
You have the power to change things for the better!
“You yourself as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection” Buddha
Shiatsu can be an immensely relaxing experience. It is a form of healing touch developed in Japan, with roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine, that stimulates the body’s vital energy (known as chi, or Ki). By connecting with your energy, blockages, deficiencies, or other imbalances can be identified.
For example stuck energy can manifest as pain, creating heat...a little like a traffic jam where cars and people easily overheat! Once cleared the energy can flow more easily and people can move forwards on their journey.
Overworking can use up our energy and without adequate rest, sleep, good food we cannot recover fully. A little like a battery that is running on empty, 6 hours sleep, a take away meal and a coffee isn’t going to replenish it to full charge. But we have another busy day/weeks ahead so we start to use energy we don’t really have. This is when problems start to arise: anxiety, insomnia or digestive problems due to a difficulty switching off, tight muscles from adrenaline overload; feeling snappy, tearful, difficulty making decisions because our energy isn’t flowing, or there just isn’t enough energy!
Calming the sympathetic nervous system can help restore functioning of the sympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for relaxing muscles and nerves. This shift assists the heart rate and blood pressure slow down, improving blood flow and functioning of our internal organs.
Using palm and thumb pressure, muscle stretches and joint rotations to assist the balancing out of ki within your body, you can expect to feel more relaxed, more centred and an easing of symptoms.
Who comes for shiatsu? People come for a variety of reasons as shiatsu can be helpful for: Feeling tired, anxious, low, fearful, or just not like your usual self. Lack of motivation to change or move towards new goals. Digestive issues. Muscle aches and joint pain. Insomnia. Back pain. Stress relief and relaxation. To maintain health and help prevent future illness.
What to expect
My body is a tremendous gift. I will treat it with love and kindness
A full session will involve a consultation to find out more about your lifestyle and health. Jayne will ask you what you would like from the sessions. This may be something like wanting relief from a stiff neck, or letting go of a ‘busy’ mind. You may like help with an emotional issue such as anxiety or grief. You may want help to shift a feeling of being ‘stuck’ in life-not feeling motivated to make a change.
The session usually lasts about 50 minutes and takes place on a futon at floor level. Clients remain fully clothed and will be covered with a light blanket for comfort.
Jayne will also offer recommendations including breathing exercises, simple energy exercises and life style tips to support you in between sessions.
Whenever you work with Jaynepshiatsu, you can trust that you’re in great hands!
