Specialist Areas

Maternity work, but Janet enjoys treating anyone who wants to improve their health.

Having been a midwife, Janet is especially interested in offering shiatsu during pregnancy, for childbirth after, as well as to anyone seeking ways to de-stress and improve their health. She has experienced the benefits of shiatsu during her own two healthy pregnancies and natural births while training, and believes it can significantly increase well-being in pregnancy and the chances of a joyful, successful birth.
