SAVE $20…Special offer in July 75 min shiatsu treatment for just $80

Mirjam completed her training as a medical practice assistant in 1997 and worked in various areas of the health and social industry. Having gone through many stages of self-discovery in her life looking for her calling, she travelled around the world, practising yoga and meditation until she came into contact with the healing art of reiki and qualified as a reiki master in 2014. She realised this wasn’t enough for her and when she first experienced shiatsu she found it ground-breaking in her life. It touched her heart deeply and she knew she wanted to learn this beautiful bodywork. Shiatsu helped her deal with anxiety, trauma and stress, experiencing more awareness in her body and mind, a deep feeling of being centred and finding more freedom in herself.

Mirjam has studied shiatsu since 2015 completing her studies in Switzerland and is a fully qualified shiatsu therapist and a registered member of the international institute of complementary therapists (IICT). Since 2017 she has worked as a wellness shiatsu practitioner in Zurich, until her heart lead her to Australia.

Mirjam is an intuitive and sensitive therapist with a natural awareness. It is her passion to offer a holistic shiatsu treatment in a safe space, with pure authenticity and presence, blended with her intuition and her heart, she addresses the whole being of each person and helps you come back into contact with your body awareness and your own innate abilities to heal.

 

“My motivation is to promote people’s awareness, to strengthen them in their own way, to promote their resilience, to support the self-empowerment of each person to become their own expert for their body and well-being. This can create more freedom and self-determination. Our lives are influenced by constant changes, in order to achieve pure freedom and to experience your true self, it’s a constant cycle of letting go of traps and blockages in our mind and body.”

 

THE TREATMENT

A shiatsu session includes first a conversation (to clarify the reason of coming and medical history), then the treatment, a short rest period and a final talk.

During a shiatsu session the client lies on a futon on the floor while wearing loose comfortable clothing. Depending on the situation, it is also advisable to work on a massage table or while sitting.

In practice thumbs, hands, elbows and knees are used to apply mindful pressure along the pathways (meridians) all over the body. Followed by stretching and rotating movements of the limbs and joints, as well head and foot massages, to relieve tension and stimulate Qi to its own natural balance. Shiatsu creates a deep feeling of relaxation, strengthening your own natural ability to heal and calm the nervous system. It allows you to reconnect with your own body & energy.
