I provide Shiatsu therapy to autistic people with complex needs.
Shiatsu is effective for treating the health conditions that often accompany autism, such as anxiety, sleep deprivation, constipation, musculoskeletal pains, period pains, digestive dysfunction, and more.
I work with autistic adults with complex needs since 2012. Too often, participation in the therapy is restricted due to high levels of anxiety and sensory issues. Despite the patients being labelled with "never going to allow someone to touch them", with an informed approach and special technique all my patients to date received the much-needed intervention.
With years of experience, and with attentiveness, patience, perseverance and creativity, I help every person to participate - even the most reclusive or avoidant.
Success is achieved with learning each person's character and needs and establishing communication and trust. The calming effect of Shiatsu therapy supports the process. Being calmer the patients can accept more challenges and participate in the otherwise unattainable therapy.
Shiatsu therapy is suitable for autistic children as well as for adults. Get in touch to learn more about my treatments and my work.
