Jane Pickard Shiatsu Massage

My commitment to health care started in 1982 with my nurse training. I successfully qualified and followed a career in medical nursing, accident and emergency and finally in a hospice. But my nursing left me feeling disconnected from myself and from the patients I wanted to help. While studying meditation and ki Aikido( a marshal art) I was introduced to the idea of a different concept of medicine, a health care that is complementary to our orthodox medicine, and I found Shiatsu. In 1991 I began my training in Shiatsu with Chris Jarmey at the European Shiatsu School in Marlborough. By the time I had qualified in 1994, I had left nursing to devote myself to and focus fully on Shiatsu. I am now a graduate member of the Shiatsu Society.
