About Tracy

About Tracy Krikler
FwSS (Teacher registered with the Shiatsu Society), CQSW, MSc

Tracy is a skilled and experienced bodywork practitioner and shiatsu teacher with an established clinical practice in North London.

She trained at British School of Shiatsu, and since qualifying in 2005, has specialised in working with both physical and emotional conditions alike, convinced of the connection between body and mind. Using the transformative power of touch, together with her knowledge of anatomy, Tracy aims to help you to fulfill your full potential in life by stimulating its natural self-healing process. Her continuing post-graduate training reflects this focus and she has at her fingertips a wide range of techniques and approaches that she will use specifically to help you with whatever intentions you have when you come for treatment.

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 healing mechanism 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. Shiatsu informs my own process of self development – as I learn, I find a deeper clarity and shifts towards my true self”

She lives in North London with her young adult children
