Tracy Krikler

Tracy Krikler teaches at the British School of Shiatsu-Do having trained there 15 years ago. Further qualifications in Shiatsu Shin Tai and Movement Shiatsu make her specialist in treating physical and emotional conditions. Tracy also offers Japanese Facial Rejuvenation treatments and a seasonal Ginger Compress.

People see Tracy for a few sessions or on an ongoing basis as they find that shiatsu helps them to overcome deeply held patterns of stress, pain or trauma, recover from injury as well as helping them to be more relaxed in their daily lives, living more fully in the present moment. Her treatments are intuitive, listening to what the receiver needs and facilitating a process in which the body’s Ki (Life Force) can flow fully and become more wholesome. When this happens, their own self – healing ability motivates recovery and greater vitality in many areas of their lives.

“Shiatsu has helped me over the years in my recovery from injury and has helped me navigate through some challenging times and life changes. Giving, receiving and my training have kept me positive, creative and more grounded in reality.”


Teaching Shiatsu Shin Tai at The British School of Shiatsu-Do presents the opportunity to delve deeper into the practise of Shiatsu. She is available to teach introductory courses elsewhere as well self-care workshops using the principles of oriental medicine and her knowledge of anatomy and movement. Come to the “Shiatsu Practise Space” on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month at the London School of Capoeira where she guides the class.
