Shiatsu Massage and Qigong coaching in North West London
Sally Ibbotson is a qualified and experienced Shiatsu Massage Practitioner working in the Kensal Rise and Willesden area. She is also a Qigong Teacher in her local North West London community and in the NHS. She is a member of the Register of the Shiatsu Society and of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council.
"I have worked as a Shiatsu Massage Therapist in Willesden and Kensal Rise for over 20 years. Shiatsu is great in Pregnancy, recovery after illness or an operation, and for all chronic, stress-related conditions.
Qigong is taught in various venues including West Hampstead and Highgate. I run regular Qigong retreats in the Dorset countryside and hold London-based Workshops.
My own journey to Health and Wellbeing has included regular Shiatsu treatments and a daily practice of Qigong. I am passionate about Natural and Complementary healthcare and see my work as supporting the body/minds innate ability to find individual healing solutions.
Treatments will comprise a full discussion about lifestyle and medical history and our main focus will be to discover what is right for you at this time."
Here are the Services that I offer:
