'...the Shiatsu is so holistic, one can face the world so positively afterwards, feeling relaxed and with such a clear, calm mind. Edwina's Shiatsu is just enhancing and each treatment is a new, positive experience so one returns for more.' Rachel - Psychiatrist, London

 

I have found Shiatsu to be very beneficial during pregnancy. I initially sought treatment to help alleviate SPD symptoms after advice from my physio but found that not only did treatments help my physical state, enabling me to be mobile throughout my pregnancy, but also my emotional well-being. Treatments with Edwina provided the opportunity for my body to relax and recuperate from the effort of carrying baby and also helped release anxieties pendin gthe birth. Having had shiatsu from several shiatsu practitioners in the past, I highly rate Edwina's skill and would recommend her treatments to others as she very much tailors her treatments to the individual and offers an empathetic approach. Linda, Lewisham

 

"For the past 3 years I have booked Edwina to do Seated Shiatsu at my Christmas Party. She does a fantastic job, doing over 3 hours of massages to a constant stream of very happy women. Her warmth and skill shines through and thank you's afterwards always contain glowing reviews for Ed."     Kate, Executive Producer, BBC

 

"The loss of some close members of our family left me drawn mentally which in turn affected my health. I was feeling so low I knew at this point that I needed help. I was recommended to have shiatsu massages and they really helped me unwind through the years and make me feel better mentally and physically. I had my life back. I now keep my health in check with regular visits to Edwina who not only apply the right massage needed at the time but also make me understand my own body. Something we should all be aware!  M ,Tutor, Orpington

 

I have been going to Edwina for Shiatsu for a number of years now and each time I go the treatment seems different and sometimes it occurs to me to ask her to record exactly what she has done so that she can repeat it. And then I tell myself not to bother as I know from experience she will do something different again next time - and here's the thing: it will be precisely what I need in that moment. Sometimes I will say I feel exhausted and she knows to do Shiatsu that will re-energise me, or conversely on the odd occasion I have asked to feel treated and she has given me a treatment that has left me with a glorious feeling of well-being. Either way, every time I have had it, I feel a lot better when I leave! I work in a stressful (but very fulfilling) job that often depletes me. Shiatsu with Edwina enables me to do that better, as well as feel healthier and happier in general in all of my life...Like I say in different words each time: you are very good at what you do!    Caroline, Teacher

 

 

 

 

 

 'When I made my appointment, I was feeling rather low, my lower back and limbs were painful and I was not doing my usual distance walking. I was also feeling very stressed. Edwina took a full case history and I really felt that she was truly interested.The session was most relaxing, with soft pipe music playing in the background, lying on a futon with only the occasional request from Ed to move or turn. Her manner alone is enough to make you feel chilled! After the session, I have to say I was totally relaxed and energised. I could not believe how well I felt and certainly had a 'spring in my step' again. From now on Shiatsu is the treatment for me. It definitely has my recommendation.'  M- London

 'I started to have Shiatsu to help my stiff neck. I had been getting worse and worse and was unable to turn my head without turning my body round. Once I started the massage, I began to feel the benefit almost immediately. The massage was firm but not painful and it made me feel very relaxed by the end of each session. It has certainly helped my neck and back pain and now I go for shorter maintenance sessions. I found Edwina reliable, approachable, knowledgeable and informative and would certainly recommend her as a Shiatsu Practitioner. BS-Teacher,London

"Edwina is a very kind and intuitive Shiatsu practitioner. She listened very carefully to me and asked me what I wanted from the Shiatsu. I felt very nurtured and held in the space and knew that Edwina was a very thorough and competent Shiatsu Practitioner. I went for stress and mid-life balance and I can honestly say that Edwina's Shiatsu treatment was like doing a course in calming meditation. I would thoroughly recommend her as a practitioner, if you need to get some much needed nurturing in your life, then book an appointment and take some time to feel a whole lot better in Edwina's kind hands"   Gaynor, Tutor, Greenwich

I thoroughly recommend Edwina's Shiatsu treatments. From the start she put me completely at my ease through her warmth, friendliness and professionalism. Shiatsu was new to me and I was surprised by the truly holistic approach and how it involved a consideration of various health and emotional concerns. Edwina explained it all clearly, and remembered so many details about me, even when there were big gaps between sessions! I found the treatments really relaxing and brilliant at relieving pain and tension in my muscles, as well as having a really positive affect on my general health, energy levels and sense of well being. Thank you Edwina!    Melanie, Musician
