Shiastu Massage and Kinesiology with Fiona Carson


Orchard Life has a new practitioner, Fiona Carson, offering bespoke Shiatsu and Kinesiology treatments, individually tailored to your needs. Fiona Carson has been a shiatsu practitioner for 20 years and has recently qualified as a kinesiologist, after a two year diploma course. She is fully accredited by the UK Shiatsu Society and the Kinesiology Association. Alongside shiatsu and kinesiology, she has been studying and practising many forms of energy work, Qi gong, martial arts and healing for years. Fiona’s mission is to help you feel better on every level, and to support and empower you to re-connect with your body and your deepest levels of self, in order to heal, grow and thrive. Fiona has helped thousands of clients with a wide range of health issues: headaches and migraines, back pain, joint pain, depression, anxiety, stress, digestive and menstrual problems to name a few. Shiatsu Shiatsu is a physical therapy from Japan, that supports and strengthens the body’s natural ability to heal and balance itself. It is based on Chinese medicine, like acupuncture, and it works on the whole person, not just with the physical body, but also with the psychological, emotional and spiritual aspects of being. The philosophy underlying Shiatsu is that Ki flows throughout the body in a series of channels called meridians. For many different reasons Ki can stop flowing freely and this then produces a symptom. Shiatsu is a deeply relaxing experience and regular treatments can alleviate stress and illness and maintain health and well-being. 


Shiatsu: • relieves tension • relieves stress • promotes wellbeing • helps aid sleep • helps relaxation 


Shiatsu can help with a wide range of conditions - from specific injuries, to more general symptoms of poor health. Whether you are suffering from specific symptoms, such as headaches, back pain, arthritis or digestive problems, or if you are going through a stressful period in your life, shiatsu can help reduce pain and increase wellbeing. 


Kinesiology can help with a huge range of health and wellbeing problems. Kinesiology treats the root cause of a health problem or emotional issue and draws on Eastern and Western holistic health systems. Some of the issues Kinesiology can help with include: Low energy – Pain – Food Allergies & Sensitivities – Nutritional deficiencies – Hormonal imbalances - Low self-esteem – Increased Personal Performance – Fears, Phobias & Anxieties – Learning Difficulties – Muscular-Skeletal Problems – Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) – Addictions – M.E./Chronic Fatigue Symptoms


Kinesiology treats the root cause of a problem, not just the symptoms and is one of the fastest growing fields in natural health therapies. The basic principle of Kinesiology is that the body never lies and through the language of muscle testing, you can identify exactly what the body needs, in order to restore and maintain optimum health and well being. A variety of techniques, including lymphatic massage, acupressure points, energy work, nutrition and emotional release, are used to bring the body back into balance. 


Fiona has a clinic at Orchard Life on Friday mornings.
