"Adam gave us an amazing experience and showed us the greatness of Shiatsu, he shared to work with and expand the energy but remain physically connected.”

“I was honoured to receive a treatment over the weekend, he treats as he teaches and meets the Ki at the points and place of touch/connection, my body afterwards felt in balance.”

“Thank you for reminding me that as I reframe my narrative around a thought and or sensation it can alter and shift.”
