Friday 22 September — Shiatsu Awareness Day – Holland & Barrett, High Town, Hereford. Local practitioners Susan Crawshaw & Wendy Gilhespy will be in-store to talk to customers and give short, free ‘taster’ treatments.
Saturday 23 September — Launch of 'Drop-in’ Clinic Café Green, St Owen Street, Hereford. Susan Crawshaw will launch a new regular ‘drop-in’ service for ‘first-aid’ pain relief or relaxation. All proceeds from the treatments on this day will be donated to St Michael’s Hospice in Bartestree, Hereford. Anyone who wants a quick relaxing treatment or who has a nagging ache or pain, can drop-in and receive a short Shiatsu — typically 15 or 30 minutes. Treatments will be on a special, very comfortable and supportive massage chair within the café or garden area. Shiatsu is always carried out through clothing. Prices will be just £5.00 for 15 minutes and £10.00 for 30 minutes.
