Established in 1994
Fitzroy Shiatsu clinic, situated above the bohemian culture of Brunswick Street, was a belief in having authentic rapport and a professional discipline in regard to providing what was needed. Shiatsu practitioners took great pride in their role as mentors and therapists, giving advice, treatment and referrals as deemed necessary. Actors, musicians, politicians and professionals would all frequent the clinic looking for some balance and grounding. A reputation developed by word of mouth. No signage, cards or advertising were present in those days but clients would wait patiently on the stairs for their treatment.
Quality treatment depends on the ability of the practitioner to adapt to the needs of the client. Looking always to assist in improving their client's life in an open, humble way.
