Claudia is a highly trained and talented Shiatsu practitioner offering specialist support for:
Anxiety & depression
Low energy & fatigue
General pain relief, in particular back pain, neck, shoulders
Working with individuals who are attending counselling or psychotherapy sessions as part of an integrated mind-body approach and improved "grounding"
Supporting people's journeys through chronic illness, such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and cancer
Originally from Lisbon, with a background in film and art, Claudia discovered Shiatsu in 2002. Experiencing back pain, she received treatments of Shiatsu.
Claudia explains "I discovered my body in a completely new way and as I improved, not only from my back pain, but also from what I thought were chronic conditions (such as bronchitis, which completely disappeared). I noticed my energy levels increasing, emotional expression expanding, and a new sense of embodiment and grounding."
Claudia studied Shiatsu with Japanese master Dr. Mitsuharu Tsuchiya, at the Portuguese Association of Seitai-Shiatsu Therapy, in Lisbon. After the course, Claudia developed a thriving practice in Portugal including integrating her Shiatsu treatments alongside leading psychotherapists and as a complement to Bioenergetics therapy.
In London, Claudia studied other Shiatsu forms, teachers included Bill Commerford, Michael Rose (Zen Shiatsu) and Alice Whieldon (Seiki). Claudia also worked in care with women living with dementia and in end-of-life. Claudia continues making films and she practices meditation and Qi Gong.
After years living in London, Claudia relocated to West Sussex and we are delighted that she has joined the team at the Tree of Life Centre.
