Morag Findlay - Shiatsu Practitioner

Morag graduated from the Glasgow School of Shiatsu's intensive 3 year course in 2009. She has a background in visual art though has always been keenly interested in bodywork, especially how nutrition and emotions affect our health and wellbeing. It wasn't until she trained in Shiatsu, with the study of TCM and energy work, that she began to understand this better. She keeps her own energy balanced with regular yoga sessions, which she has being practicing for over 20 years, though she is interested in all kinds of energy work such as Tai Chi and meditation to the more dynamic form found in 5 Rhythm dance. She also practices Do In (self Shiatsu) and Makko Ho which is simple meridian stretches similar to yoga.

In a Shiatsu session Morag will treat your whole body rather than just the area of aches and pain, with an understanding that emotional states can manifest in all kinds of physical issues. Her technique encompasses deep physical manipulation of tight muscles, including stretches and rotations to light energy work in weaker areas. She endeavours to keep a good energy present at all times to help with the healing process.

Clients seek Shiatsu from Morag for a variety of reasons, from tight muscles and back problems to emotional related issues such as insomnia, stress and tension. Or to get more energy, lift spirits or simply for relaxation. Each session is tailored to suit your needs at that particular point in time. Since our energy is constantly changing Shiatsu treatments will vary from session to session though you should always leave feeling more balanced and relaxed with a better awareness of your body. This helps to put you back in control of your own wellbeing.
Morag is currently a Director with the Shiatsu Society(UK)
