Shiatsu is a health treating system that appeared in Japan in the early 20th century and is based on the theory of Traditional Chinese and Japanese Medicine.

It involves applying pressure to specific points along the energy channels that run through the human body. It aims to restore the free flow of energy, ensuring the smooth operation of all internal systems, pain relief and maintaining good health.


Gentle Bio-Energetics

Gentle Bio-Energetics is a form of very mild energy work, that’s where the name comes from, initiated by Eva Reich. It involves working with all aspects of the individual; cognitive, physical, emotional and spiritual. It is not just a body therapy.

The goal of Gentle Bio-Energetics therapy is to enable individuals identify his/her armoring mechanisms, heal any underlying conscious or unconscious memories and restore the natural flow of life energy.


Guided Meditation




"Η Αναστασία είναι ένας υπέροχος άνθρωπος που με συνόδεψε στο σημαντικότερο ταξίδι της ζωής μου, εκείνο της προετοιμασίας μου για την εγκυμοσύνη. Η ζεστασιά και η δοτικότητα που αποπνέει ως άνθρωπος, αποτελούν σπάνια χαρακτηριστικά, ιδιαίτερα δύσκολο να αποδοθούν με λέξεις. Μια γνωριμία μαζί της θα σας πείσει!"

I had the best experience with Anastasia. It felt very personalized to my needs. I especially liked that she spent the full hour with me rather than going back and forth between patients as I had experienced with previous acupuncturists. I felt very calm and relaxed under her care and would highly recommend her to everyone!


Anastasia is just lovely and I saw her before and after embryo transfer. She took a thorough medical history before proceeding with acupuncture. She then offered a guided meditation or she would focus on where she felt she should focus the energy by laying her hands on me and also giving a small massage on my tummy. Following transfer she again did acupuncture and focused on the energy. It was all very relaxing and safe. Anastasia throughout made easy conversation which made you feel at ease. I would highly recommend Anastasia.
