Restorative Acupressure

James Thirlwall is one of only a handful of practitioners in the UK offering Restorative Acupressure - also known as Deep Qi Restorative Bodywork - a style of very gentle body work used in the Yin Style Bagua system of Chinese Medicine.

It can be thought of as a Chinese Medicine equivalent of Cranial Sacral Therapy or Yin Shiatsu.

What does it involve?

Treatment is carried out through clothing and involves gentle, rhythmic rocking, shaking and holding of the body and acupressure points to realign and reintegrate the skeletal system so that Qi can flow freely within the body.

It is quite common to experience tangible sensations of Qi flow within the body - these can manifest as pulsing, waves, shaking, vibrating or radiating heat.

Deep stillness

Over the course of the treatment these sensations tend to subside and leave a residual sense of profound stillness.  If you have ever experienced a deep state of meditation you will be familiar with this feeling.

Who it suitable for?

Everyone can benefit from Restorative Acupressure but it is particularly recommended for people with: 

  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Sleep Issues
  • Headaches or Migraines
  • Digestive Issues
  • Burnout or Exhaustion

Book a session

If you would like to experience Restorative Acupressue it can be booked as a stand-alone treatment for 60 minutes for £60.
