Rachel Boase is a specialist in healing touch therapies

working with the sensory system and proprioceptive faculties of the body to help clear stress patterns





The therapies offered complement each other. By using non invasive healing techniques of gentle holding, digital and palm pressure, joint mobilisation, stretches and manipulation, support for many health complaints is offered to clients. Through helping to strengthen the body’s natural ability to heal and balance itself sessions can assist with both stress and pain management as well as improve immune response. Each treatment is designed to address individuals’ needs and promote a sense of relaxation. Receivers remain fully clothed and lie on a comfortable table or futon.


Rachel works in the south west of England offering treatments informed by her years of experience as a practitioner of Shiatsu, Shin Tai and Craniosacral. She is a registered member of the Craniosacral Therapy Association, RCST, the Shiatsu Society UK, MRSS T, and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, CNHC. In addition she hosts postgraduate workshops for shiatsu practitioners and other physical therapists. For horse trainers and enthusiasts interested in learning practical hands-on skills themselves she runs workshops in equine bodywork.


Techniques are non invasive, hands-on and therapeutic, all helping the horse stay supple, release tension patterns and aid the body to recover well from injury. Focus is on enhancing proprioceptive awareness and promoting good health and is considered helpful for both physical and behavioural issues. Rachel works with a wide variety of clients, from athletic sport horses to companion ponies and donkeys and is fully trained in Equine Craniosacral Therapy, ECST, and Masterson Method, MMCP, as well as Shiatsu. She integrates skills acquired over 21 years of human bodywork with equine bodywork.
