Hello Everyone, my name is Siobhán O’Brien
Hi, I’d like to introduce myself, I am a Shiatsu Practitioner. I first completed a Certificate in the Foundations of Shiatsu in 2012 and immediately fell in love with this ‘Touch Therapy’.
I continued with my studies and completed 3 years of training to receive a Diploma in Shiatsu from the Shiatsu College Dublin, graduating in 2016.
While completing all my training I also delved deep into the world of self-development and self-discovery, & I continue to do so each and every day, learning along the way. I decided to further my knowledge and I am currently attending Landsdowne College of Acupuncture & Complementary Medicine.
I am studying Acupuncture, Moxibustion & Cupping. This is a 3 year course and once completed, I will graduate with a Diploma in Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine, as well as a Certificate in Clinical Medicine in order to acknowledge the western medical content of the course.
I also have a keen interest in photography and seeing the beauty in everyday life and in everyday things.
Shiatsu, together with Nature, and now also, learning Acupuncture, gives me solace & peace from the stresses of everyday life and I am grateful to feel balanced, grounded and happy.
If I can give a little bit of that feeling to others through Shiatsu & Acupuncture, then I would be immensely humbled to do so.
What is Shiatsu ?
Shiatsu is a traditional form of Japanese Therapy and literally translates to ‘finger pressure’. (It has also been referred to as ‘acupuncture without the needles’.)
Shiatsu is a ‘touch therapy’ that uses comfortable pressure by palming and thumbing the energy channels or meridians throughout the body, whilst building and maintaining trust and a connection between client and therapist.
Shiatsu is applied directly through your clothing, and so ideally, a client would wear loose, comfortable clothes.
The treatment usually takes place on a futon on the floor with the aid of pillows/cushions etc. It can also be given on a plinth or indeed in a chair.
Shiatsu can also include gentle stretches and rotations of your limbs and joints.
People can come for a Shiatsu Treatment for many reasons. Shiatsu provides relief from the aches and pains and stresses of everyday living and it releases tension that’s been held in the body, which can manifest in the form of various conditions for the client.
The focus of the treatment is to support and enhance the clients own body and immune system so as they can begin to feel more balanced physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
