Zenthai Shiatsu Therapist
in the Byron Shire
I help you connect with the parts of your Self that may be holding protections.
Through powerful therapeutic bodywork, we can restore and maintain space and movement in your body, allowing for an optimal flow of vital energy that will benefit all aspects of your life.
Zenthai Shiatsu weaves together the arts of Zen Shiatsu, Traditional Thai massage, and Osteopathy, opening up your body so it can rebalance itself and let go of unnecessary tensions.
What is Zenthai Shiatsu?
Zenthai Shiatsu combines the healing arts of Zen Shiatsu (based on Traditional Chinese Medicine), Traditional Thai Massage and Osteopathic techniques. The focus is on assessing and rebalancing movement limitations by releasing tight muscles and unwinding fascia. This encourages proper alignment and promotes the flow of Qi in the meridians, allowing all your body systems to function optimally and in harmony.
I intend to assist your body in restoring and maintaining its balance. Each session is uniquely designed for your needs and will take you into a graceful dance, alternating between stretches and deep pressure, rocking and stillness… Together, we will unravel the layers of protective armour you have built and shed light on the limitations that have held you back. With patience, compassion, and unwavering support, I will hold space for you to explore these uncomfortable aspects of yourself. I invite you to delve deeper, acknowledging and processing these experiences so that you can move towards a state of profound peace, freedom, and expansion.
Through our work together, you will cultivate a profound awareness of your body and mind, reestablishing a connection with the parts of yourself you have long avoided. By bringing the light of your presence to these neglected areas, you will begin to release the tension, pain, and emotional baggage that has accumulated over time. As you embark on this transformative journey, you will discover your true potential and embrace a life of authentic expression and vibrant well-being.
Sessions happen on a mat on the floor, and you remain fully clothed. Cupping and moxibustion may be used when appropriate. They are followed by specific diet and lifestyle advice, as well as custom stretches that will help you maintain your open state in the long term.

Workshop : the Water Element
Winter offers us the opportunity for deep healing of the Water Element within ourselves. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, our Kidneys are the repository of our Essence, or Jing. This store can get depleted by stress, fear, lack of rest or even cold weather. Cultivating this Essence is paramount to our vitality and longevity.
During this 3 hours workshop, we will learn to tune into the manifestations of the Water Element in our physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. We'll discover powerful Self Care practices to nurture our nervous system and build up our store of Essence. We will also explore what lifestyle practices support the Water Element. Finally, we will learn a Zenthai Shiatsu sequence that promotes harmony in our loved ones.
You will step out empowered to make the best of the opportunities winter has to offer, more in tune with Life's natural cycles.
