Shibashi Tai Chi Instructor and Bowen Practitioner
Shibashi Tai Chi
Shibashi Tai Chi consists of 18 gentle, flowing Qigong movements. The rhythmic movements, combined with the breath make it a joy to learn. It is suitable for people of all ages and can be practised sitting or standing.
I teach 5 local classes in West Somerset. For more information please contact me at home in the evening to discuss the different venues and times. I charge £39 for a block of 6 classes or £8 if you pay as you go.
£48 for the first treatment and £42 thereafter. I initially recommend between 1- 6 consecutive visits as Bowen is a progressive treatment that allows the body time to get to the 'cause' of the symptom, followed by maintenance treatments every 6-8 weeks or to suit your needs to keep on top of the condition.
