You are invited to join Hannah Currant, Bristol based Shiatsu practitioner, for a special holiday with a twist. More than just a break, this is an experience to really nourish your mind, body and soul. Whether you are looking to de-stress and relax, or you have ongoing wellbeing issues you would like to address away from the daily demands of life, then this is the perfect holiday for you!
In the warmth of the African sun, Hannah will be offering a personal consultation and hour long Shiatsu treatments tailored exclusively to meet your needs. Your individual Shiatsu sessions will be complimented by daily workshops incorporating Qigong, Do-in, and Makka-ho techniques - gentle breathing and stretching exercises, to enliven, invigorate and rejuvenate your system from the inside out. All this will take place in a beautiful and tranquil setting of a very special earth hotel nestled in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains not far from the delights of Marrakech.
You will also have opportunities to explore the coast, markets and Atlas Mountains with day trips, alongside the daily workshops and Shiatsu treatments.
Shiatsu is an ancient Japanese form of body work, practised through clothing on a futon mat on the floor. Sometimes known as “Acupuncture without needles”, Shiatsu works on the ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine system of Meridians, using acupressure points, stretches and gentle pressure, to give support and activate the body’s own healing system. It is deeply relaxing, leaving the client refreshed, rejuvenated and with a greater sense of their own wellbeing.
Qigong is a system of slow, gentle movements and breathing exercises which compliments Shiatsu beautifully. It works in a way that supports the body to activate the same meridians, nourishing and supporting the systems of the body to full health and vitality.
Do-in is a form of self shiatsu, easily learnt and incorporated into our daily routine, alongside makka-ho stretches; gentle stretches designed to specifically activate each of the major meridians used in Shiatsu
Hannah will also be offering you the opportunity to learn some Shiatsu yourself, teaching some simple techniques you can practise on family and friends along with other exercises, stretches and techniques you can take home with you and build into your day to day life to continue the feeling of deep peace and relaxation you discover and develop on this wonderful holiday!
