My name is Alan Hatton-Perkins.

I have held a keen interest in Eastern Philosophy and Health Care for over twenty years.

During this time through my own training in the martial arts I came to understand the bodies remarkable ability to heal itself, which when given the right circumstances can remain in a healthy natural balance.  I became interested in exploring how this could be integrated into supporting the body in modern day living through the simple act of informed touch.

Shiatsu with its holistic approach to health offered this and set me on a path of learning that continues to evolve.

I started my training with the British School of Shiatsu in London, where I gained a level one diploma in Shin Tai Shiatsu. I finished my training with the Shiatsu College in Norwich, gaining a diploma in Zen Shiatsu, enabling me to register as a professional practitioner with the Shiatsu Society. I am motivated to continually develop my Shiatsu Practice through regular clinical supervision and continued professional development through both the Shiatsu Society and previous training schools.

I presently enjoy running a successful practice from my home in Wellingborough Northamptonshire, where I feel blessed offering help to people who feel comfortable enough to put their trust and troubles into my hands.

When I’m not giving, studying or receiving Shiatsu, you will most likely find me in the garden, fishing, meditating or spending time with my wife and family.
