about shaun

The Therapist

Shaun, a Practitioner of Traditional East Asian Medicine has studied widely with a variety of Masters and Teachers of the healing Arts and Medicines of the Orient.

His work is principally influenced by a Japanese approach to treating his patients gently, to not cause unnecessary discomfort or pain and to include more massage.

By feeling the body surface he can make assessment of the patients body condition and decide on individual treatment.

Shaun considers disease of the Body and Mind to be associated with muscular tension and designs his treatments around freeing up the body as a whole.

He believes in a more natural approach to treating his patients and to help people through showing them how to use their own healing senses in resolving body health and disorders.

Moxa Therapy & herbal Medicine

Japanese meridian therapy it is traditional for patients to be shown how to treat themselves or their partner with Moxa at home, as a between treatment 'top up'.
Moxa, a herb commonly used in acupuncture, is burnt on the skin at responsive points. Simple Moxa treatment can be performed without causing injury to the skin.

When it is not possible to attend meridian therapy as frequently as desirable, being able to treat at home with Moxa techniques makes for a valuable supportive therapy.

After gaining some mastery of Japanese moxa at home, shaun teaches a lay person's method to herbal diagnosis for the therapeutic use of herbs at home.

The aim is to become comfortable over decisions regarding what will prove effective and learn to safely consider an herb's potential beyond the written information.

Herbs, used in this way, may be demonstrated to have effect complimentary to meridian therapy, and as supportive in developing self-care towards self-cultivation.
