My name is Claudia. I offer Shiatsu, Jikiden Reiki and Wellbeing workshops. I am a certified and insured practitioner based in Brighton. With nearly 2 decades of experience in Shiatsu, my treatments combine the precision of pressure points with the gentle flow of deep energy treatments.


I studied Seitai-Shiatsu with a Japanese master in Lisbon and work since 2003. I also studied other forms of Shiatsu in London, Zen Shiatsu, Seiki, and also Jikiden Reiki. For many years I practice tai chi, qi gong and meditation. These different experiences have allowed me a solid ground to develop my own treatment style. I follow my intuition and sensitivity while focusing on clients needs. Healing means Wholeness. A whole person approach is my focus. Through Shiatsu, energy and healing touch, I connect the dots and work on harmonizing and balancing. read more
