Shiatsu is a sister therapy to Acupuncture. Instead of needles we use our hands, using pressures, stretches and articulations to bring about beneficial changes. The touch is gentle, using only our own natural body weight for pressure.
‘i-atsu'(TM) is the trade name given to the human work and syllabus and the animal work appears under the trade name of ‘shi-animal-atsu’(TM). This will identify what type of shiatsu you have received or studied and with whom, as there are around seven or so different types of shiatsu around the world.

For thousands of years Shiatsu Therapy has been used for the benefit of people. In 1983 it was pioneered onto horses by the late Pamela Hannay from the USA, and in 1998 it was pioneered onto dogs by Jacqueline Cook from the UK. In 1996 it was Jacqueline Cook who brought Shiatsu Therapy for Horses with Pamela Hannay from the USA to the UK. In 2008 Jacqueline Cook remarried to become Jacqueline Molony.

After numerous years practising Ohashiatsu from which she qualified and graduated, Jacqueline went on to develop i-atsu as a natural progression from her original studies.

Today the UK is the only country in the whole world that has seen such a growth in Shiatsu Therapy for animals. One reason could be that it is perfectly safe for even beginners to use with its non invasive techniques, giving no side effects and allowing it to be used alongside conventional medicine.

Another reason for the growth in Shiatsu Therapy for animals in the UK is Jacqueline’s great desire to continue to spread the word through talks, lectures, seminars and demonstrations. If you wish to have a talk or seminar near you, then please do call us on 01547 530871 where we will be more than happy to organise one for you (a minimum of 10 people is required).
