Hello and Welcome


Shiatsu & Conscious Cooking is all about helping you recognise and connect physical symptoms with emotions and how to treat them with food, drink and acupressure points.

I am a Shiatsu Practitioner specializing in the energy of food in Traditional Chinese Medicine – using what we eat and drink as a source of everyday energy to strengthen and heal. By using this website, you can gain insight into the connection between how you feel and the food you choose

“Understanding what your body’s craving and using healthy food in your everyday life is the underlying principal of Shiatsu & Conscious Cooking. “


Shiatsu uses comfortable thumb pressure and palming massage to penetrate deeply into the muscles, energy channels and acupuncture points.  I use the Hara to diagnose and treat both physical and emotional conditions.  Shiatsu is a Holistic treatment which diagnoses and treats the root of the problem as well as the manifesting symptoms.


In Shiatsu and Traditional Chinese Medicine the body is classified into yin/yang organ pairs and meridian pathways which correspond to emotions, flavours, seasons and colours.  There are no good or bad foods simply foods which do and don’t suit us at this time. It’s all about connecting with the body, seeing what it wants and loving ourselves more.


Joanne is the Author of “Shiatsu & the Art of Conscious Cooking” which is a cookbook with recipes, meditations,acupressure points to suit your mood, stop cravings and alleviate physical symptoms.  To look inside the book visit Amazon look inside – to buy in Euro visit Joanne’s Etsy Shop

” —I am delighted to offer shiatsu treatments, online video courses, regular cooking classes, a tactile and colourful cookbook, personal diet consultations, events and retreats all of which, I hope. will help you to use the simple 5 Element System of Traditional Chinese Medicine, putting together physical symptoms, emotional states and the food we eat.”

By understanding the body as a whole system in Traditional Chinese Medicine we can understand why certain emotions and conditions create cravings and desires for certain foods.
