My name is Oliver Cliff and I am a current Professional Member (MrSS) of the Shiatsu Society UK, having gained my practitioner Diploma in Shiatsu in 2005 and a Graduate Member (MBPsS) of the British Psychological Society after completing my BSc Honours Degree in Psychology in 2016. Combining my understanding of Shiatsu and psychology allows me to help my clients on both a physical and psychological basis promoting all-round, health, healing and well-being. My specialism is in fast-tracking recovery from physical and emotional issues, I have success in helping people with long term chronic pain, back, hip, shoulder and neck complaints as well as in phobias, anxiety and depression. I have a deeply personal understanding for the need of bodywork and the impact injury can have on mind and body, having been involved in a serious motorbike crash in 2013. By 2017 I had a chronic back issue, flexibility issues and was dependent on prescription medication to control my pain. I couldn't physically or mentally go on like that so decided to make a change. I started working on myself daily and over 18 months started the journey to regain my pre-crash health, came off all prescription pain medication, lost weight and was well enough to practice Shiatsu again. I have learned countless lessons whilst working on my own rehabilitation journey that allows me to offer a unique and transformative approach to health and inner wisdom, which can benefit all who are interested in participating and recovering from their illness and staying well.
