1 Hour Shiatsu: £60
Helps to establish and maintain well-being. If you are suffering from a chronic symptom such as neck / shoulders / back pain or sleeping problems, receiving a session every 2~3 weeks is recommended until the condition starts to shift.
2 Hours Shiatsu & Facial Massage: £120 ← Available Now! 🌻
An extensive holistic package, a well-being treatment and a pampering treat that rebalances your body system and restores internal and external radiance. A session starts with 1 hour of Shiatsu, followed by 1 hour of Facial Rejuvenation Massage.
1.5 Hour Back & Facial Massage: £90 ← Available Now! 🌻
A session starts with 30 minutes of the whole back body massage (fully clothed) to relieve the tension and tightness caused by postural stress such as desk work or driving for long hours, followed by 1 hour of Facial Rejuvenation Massage.
We recommend you not to eat heavily at least 30 minutes before the session, to wear stretchy material or loose clothes (no jeans / no shorts / no skirt) for stretches and rotations, and also to wear or bring socks (no bare feet) for foot massage.
＊Before Facial Massage:
If you're wearing contact lenses or accessories, we ask you to remove them before a session. Please bring your contact lens case if you need.
We'd appreciate your payment by cash. We're afraid Debit / Credit cards can't be accepted.
If you find you need to cancel or postpone an appointment we'd like to suggest you do so by the day before with a telephone call / text message. If you don't receive a reply within 24 hours, we'd appreciate your contacting us again.
Shiatsu Protocol at the Healthy Living Centre
Updated on 20/07/21
~ Before your visit ~
1) You will be asked a few questions about your general health conditions and symptoms prior to a session. Re: no high temperature, no new continuous cough, no loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.* Please reply by email by the day before your session day.
2) Please wear loose-fitting comfortable clothing (no jeans, shorts or skirt), ideally with long sleeves to minimise direct skin contact. Also, if you’d like the feet to be worked on please wear or bring socks.
*The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:
– a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
– a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
– a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
~ When you arrive ~
1) I’d like to advise you to arrive on time, not early, as the shop (Mother Earth) cannot be a waiting area. I will let you in through HLC door (not shop).
2) I will ask you to use alcohol hand rub and to wear a mask which I will provide at the door. (If you’d like to use yours, that’s fine, too.)
3) The surface of the couch bed will be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol before and after a session.
4) I’d recommend you to visit the lavatory at home before you depart.
~ During a session ~
1) I will wash my hands just before a treatment and will wear a visor and a mask.
2) For Shiatsu, please wear a mask when you're lying on your back.
3) The windows and curtains in the treatment room will be open to allow the free flow of air.
