Trauma Informed Shiatsu is flexible to your needs
Alex works together with each individual to create a safe, supportive and flexible atmosphere for the shiatsu to take place in. Care is taken to give as much choice as possible. If someone is not ready to receive direct touch but would still like to explore body focussed techniques, Alex has developed off-body techniques which may involve grounding, stretching, breathing … whatever might be appropriate for the individual.
There is a futon in the Body Based Therapy Room for those who feel comfortable with lying down, but others might prefer to sit in a chair to receive the shiatsu. Individuals can discuss with Alex what feels right for them. Participants remain fully clothed throughout the sessions and when on the futon they are also covered by a light rug. The sessions proceed slowly… at a pace that feels right for each person.
Alex works together with each individual to discover what approach is best, actively encourages input into the sessions and supports you to be in control.
