REGENERATION | with Guest Speaker Chris McAlister

How we can regenerate resources in the body through simple mental and physical exercises?
Particularly in the modern scenario of abundant and chronic degenerative, inflammatory, endocrine and fatigue-related disease, this topic is of crucial importance.
The ability to create post-natal energy and then conduct this energy into the depots traditionally held to contain Jing and Yuan Qi is pivotal, not only in a long list of physical disease patterns, but a host of situations indicating apparent ill mental health.
This talk will give you tools for relaxation, regeneration and rejuvenation, and bring vital energy resources back into available circulation and into correct storage structures.
You will:
° feel more relaxed
° improve your mood
° sharpen your vital mental state
° increase your physical vigour
Chris McAlister is currently one of the most prominent ambassadors of Shiatsu and the Asian way of life in the West. He currently serves as is the Chief Editor and President of ESF – European Shiatsu Federation.
In his comprehensive and easy-to-digest new book “The poetry of Touch”, he takes the listener on a journey right into the heart of Oriental medicine and how it overlaps with modern Western science and philosophy.
In this unique and special evening you will experience profound insight into the body.

Here’s what some women had to say after working with me …..

“Jo has helped me over a number of years. her knowledge and skills are second to none. She has eased severe Torticollis many years ago. She also has supported my system through recommended diet and shiatsu after Gall Bladder removal. A session with Jo is an escape from the madness of day to day life. It allows my body a chance to relax and recover. I always feel the benefits straight away but as the week continues I can see it more. My energy levels are up, my mood is brighter and I am calmer. Jo has a wealth of experience and has a natural ability to read a person’s needs. she tailors each session to your needs at that moment. Jo has supported me through two pregnancies and the postpartum period too. with all the changes in hormones and the physical body. I couldn’t recommend Jo more. She puts you at ease as soon as you walk through her door with her warmth and kindness. No matter your concerns. An ache in your back, reflux, low mood… Jo can help so reach out. I promise one session and you won’t look back!”
– Jen Crawford – Doula Care Ireland

“Healing for the body and the soul! Jo is absolutely amazing, not only as a practitioner but as a person too! I cannot recommend her highly enough! if you have never tried Shiatsu, please don’t hesitate a moment longer! Visits to Jo for treatment are a priority! We service our cars and our bodies are way more important than a car! Healing and relaxation and de-stress are just some of the benefits of a Shiatsu treatment with Jo! 5*****”

– Sharon Gunn

“Jo is the best. She’s intuitive, intelligent, compassionate and considerate. I got a wonderful Shiatsu massage and some great dietary advice. Highly recommend. Professional masseuses. Amazing results.”

– Mahesh Patrick Bridgeman

“I had the privilege of having a Shiatsu treatment with Joanne recently. She is both deeply caring and professional. She combines an intuitive, powerful, shiatsu treatment with supportive nutritional advice in a safe nurturing space. In one session I felt more alert and energised than I had for many months. I come with a complicated and serious medical history that she received in a professional and sensitive way. I felt heard and supported and for the first time in many months, I felt hopeful on leaving her treatment room. I highly recommend Joannes healing work, a treatment with her is a gift to both body and soul. Enjoy!”

The path to health is clear but it can be difficult to walk alone, especially if you balance a family, career and everything else life throws at you. Adding “one more thing” can be overwhelming especially if you are given too much information and you are not sure where to start. This can mean you go back to old habits, sticking with the devil you know. Falling back into quick snacks, too tired to move off the sofa, too defeated to think that anything can change. But your body is not outside your control. With my specialised support, we can understand what is at the root of wreaking havoc with your body and how we can fix it.
