Shiatsu can be beneficial for people with a wide range of conditions and is great for increasing our sense of well-being.

Within and around all of us, life-energy (or Qi) exists flowing in channels throughout the body. The techniques employed in Shiatsu – using energetic connection and manual techniques can rebalance the flow of this Qi and lead to improved health and wellbeing

Beginning with a long-standing practice of meditation and Yoga, it felt like a natural progression to go into East Asian bodywork.

I graduated from the Shiatsu College professional training course in 1999 in which I studied Shiatsu, Chinese Medicine and anatomy, physiology and pathology. I currently practise at the Brighton Shiatsu Centre and in Hove.

I am registered as a Shiatsu practitioner with both the Shiatsu Society and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). My public profile on the Shiatsu Society website can be viewed here.07866347183

    I received Great Shiatsu from Debbie Collins who is Director and Teacher Brighton branch of the Shiatsu College. Debbie is at the top of her profession and her work is powerful. The Centre is delightful and very tranquil. I highly recommend a visit for a wonderful treatment.

    Additional Information


    I have spent a number of years giving Shiatsu to people with chronic health issues. Between 1998 and 2004 I practised Shiatsu at the Sussex Beacon in Brighton.

    I also practised Shiatsu at the Detox project for Brighton Housing Trust working with people with substance problems from 2011 to 2020.

    Traditional Chinese (and of course Japanese) medicine forms an important part of an holistic healthcare package and has a long history of treating conditions that are sometimes more difficult for western medicine.
