My name is Angela Bushaway and I am passionate about your health and well being. My aim is to help you to achieve your own unique balanced and healthy life. I am a professional acupuncturist and shiatsu practitioner. My particular interest is in helping and supporting women. I seek to work with women throughout their lives: helping them on their fertility journey and also to transition through the menopause, so they can feel strong and centred. I originally trained as a nursery teacher. Working with small children was really enjoyable but as my own children grew up I started to wonder about other possible career paths. So I began to investigate complementary therapies and even enrolled on a basic aromotherapy course. This was very interesting but I felt that being an aromotherapist wasn’t the right therapy. A friend then introduced me to the wonders and delights of shiatsu. This felt much more me, especially as I had always been fascinated by all things oriental and had often dreamt about going to Japan. I therefore enrolled on a 3 year shiatsu course and began practising this amazingly relaxing treatment alongside my work with children.
