Equestrian Shiatsu

Linda is a qualified and insured Equestrian Shiatsu practitioner. She studied Zen Shiatsu for horses at the Scottish School of Shiatsu for Horses, under Liz Eddy, and the human part of her qualification was with the Glasgow School of Shiatsu under Elaine Liechti.

What is Shiatsu?

Shiatsu literally means 'finger pressure' and is based on the concepts of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The basic techniques involve pressure with the thumbs, fingers and palms along with stretches and rotations.
This form of Shiatsu is based on palpatory diagnosis and treatment is decided on what is presented in the moment.
Zen Shiatsu looks at the horse as a whole, working with both the physical and psychological aspects. Quality of touch is therefore particularly important, as is treating each horse as an individual.
Linda also incorporates the TCM Five Element Theory into her treatment to tailor her session to the individual horse. This helps explain how the horse functions and reacts in certain situations, and determines the type of handling that is best suited to its individual needs.

Horse Shiatsu treatment £50

Linda will take a full history of your horse, and take note of any issues that you are currently experiencing. 

Your horse will receive a full Shiatsu treatment and Linda will show you some suggestions for exercises that you can do yourself that may benefit your horse.

The appointment will last around 2 hours.

Areas covered: Central Scotland: Stirlingshire, Clackmannanshire, West Lothian, North Lanarkshire.

Human seated shiatsu treatment £40

Why not treat yourself to a seated Shiatsu treatment and look after your own wellbeing.

Linda will bring her mobile Shiatsu chair to you, and you can enjoy a seated Shiatsu session.  Your session will work on pressure points on the head, neck, back, shoulders, arms and hands. It can help to improve the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems.

The appointment will last around an hour. 

**Special offer.

If your treatment takes place on the same visit as your horse's treatment, it will be at the reduced cost of £30.
