Shiatsu Connects Self- Care with Jenny
Shiatsu Connects Self- Care with Jenny
Shiatsu exercises and acupressure can be used in daily life as ‘bite-size chunks’, which can be used as part of a daily routine to encourage physical and emotional well-being; or when experiencing physical aches and pains; or when some emotional ‘first-aid’ is needed during times of stress and anxiety.
Jenny’s aim is to empower people to help themselves in times of difficulty. During the workshops, she introduces gentle self-Shiatsu techniques, acupressure points, self-compassion/mindfulness of touch, and some simple tension release exercises to use in time of need, to reduce feelings of stress, anxiety and tension in the mind and body.
In each hour-long session:
- We start with some simple mindful movement to connect, warm up and regulate the nervous system.
- Shiatsu exercises and qi gong to support and balance the mind and body.
- Acupressure points to address a range of conditions, e.g. areas of pain, insomnia, headaches and migraines, digestive issues, stress and anxiety.
- At the end of each session, we share a virtual hug, a Q&A discussion and time for a chat, to connect as a community.
These sessions are drop-in and suitable for beginners and all physical abilities. Please feel free to drop Jenny a line if you have any questions or concerns, or if you are curious to know more about Shiatsu.
Jenny gently guides you through range of self-care techniques based on Shiatsu theory and practices, focusing on supporting your physical and emotional well-being. These sessions are co-created by the group, and we take requests so that these sessions are useful and relevant to the needs of the individual and the group. In recent sessions, we have had requests for tips to support with emotional fatigue; lower back issues; knee pain; jaw/neck/shoulder tension; stress, anxiety.

What is Shiatsu?
Shiatsu is a holistic Japanese touch therapy based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupressure and energy psychology. Shiatsu can support you to deal with the stresses and strains, and aches and pains that may occur in everyday life. It can help with physical and emotional issues which may appear in the body as pain or illness. It can also help to maintain good health and well-being in a proactive, preventative way.

What other people say about Shiatsu Connects online workshops for WELL-BEING & in TIMES OF NEED.
“I can’t quite believe how much of a difference some of these easy exercises made to how I feel! I found the exercises so relaxing and grounding and I now have a short list of the top 3 that I can do every day in just a few minutes, to keep me more grounded, relaxed and focused.”
“Jenny’s sessions have been really valuable to me during these difficult touch-deprived times. They have been a nourishing, and informative way to connect with my body and to tap into some self-care. Not only are the sessions enjoyable, but Jenny delivers them in a way that shows real care, kindness, and her knowledge of the subject (Shiatsu). I would wholly recommend the sessions.”
