Zenthai shiatsu is a fusion of traditional therapies drawing on the Traditional Energetic based systems of Zen Shiatsu, Traditional Thai Massage and the remediation techniques of Osteopathy. 

By the integration of the prime aspects of the modalities and the creation of a safe, awake and caring healing environment, Zenthai has evolved to be widely recognised as an effective form of therapy working with the structural, energetic and emotional bodies.

In a typical session with Alison,  traditional diagnostic techniques of tongue and pulse are observed to formulate an aligned session including flowing nourishing massage with herbal, dietary and lifestyle advice.


Moxibustion, cupping and balms are optional additions to the session.

ZenThai Shiatsu Massage

Blood, Ki and nerves form the foundations of our bodies internal pathways. Your local doctor may refer to arterial flow or nerve pathways whilst your alternative health practitioner may refer to it as ‘the river of life that ensures good health and vitality.’

When this is obstructed through emotional or physical trauma, postural imbalances or external invasion of pathogens, the natural healing mechanisms of our body is challenged and the ‘free flowing river’ often stagnates. The result is pain, low energy and a general loss of the feeling of well being. The body is needing support.

ZenThai Shiatsu massage offers this support - to help ease stagnation in the body and promote the free flowing qi in the body - easing the physical, emotional and energetic body into presence and deep relaxation.

Cupping Therapy

Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. This suction will improve the flow of energy in the body and facilitate healing.

Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. Cupping also aids the formation of new connective tissues and the creation of new blood vessels in the tissue.

Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials called "moxa" are burned on or very near the surface of the skin. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi in the body and dispel certain pathogenic influences.
Moxa is made from the dried leafy material of Chinese mugwort (Artemesia argyi or A.vlugaris),

I recieved what was a very helpful Zen Shiatsu Massage with Ali today. It was amazing how Ali worked with the subtle body energies and how I was able to feel just how stirred up these energies were. The messages I recieved suggested I needed to give my body some quiet time each day in order to recharge these energies and to prevent them from being constantly drained.
Very grateful!
