I love shiatsu, I love food – all these things connect me to the best of life, which is joyous love.” 

Shiatsu is sometimes described as acupuncture without needles. It’s rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine that links together food, emotions, organs, colours, flavours, symptoms, senses, times of year and times of the day so that you can interpret moods or symptoms and heal them with food.

It’s not about fad diets, it’s about understanding the ancient simple nutritional system of Yin and Yang. With me, Joanne Faulkner and Conscious Cooking, you understand this simple system to know and embrace what food works for you…….. #LoveYourFood #LoveYourself

You can learn this 1-1 by booking a Shiatsu treatment or working with me through an Online Course.  If you like group experiences, join us on one of the healthy, fun Cooking Retreats or book me to come to your organization, festival or family home to give a live demo of what this amazing system can do for you and how to make delicious food that suits your body.

It’s about how to love yourself with food as medicine, simple.

Thank you so very much for your beautiful book, I love it. So much of what I believe in but never related my mindfulness to my food before. Now that I read about it I realize I was mindlessly eating. Very helpful thank you



Your knowledge and enthusiasm for your cooking and your holistic approach to how to nurture and heal both body and mind has given me a greater understanding of what conscious cooking is really about, and how important it is in our hectic lives.
I sure hope to be sitting around the table with you in the near future.
