Holistic Therapies

Holistic Therapies, Healthcare & Personal treatments.

Duncan Hulin offers a range of holistic therapies based around Shiatsu and his own experience of yoga as a body therapy tool.

Holistic therapy treatments start with a thorough consultation where specific problems and issues can be discussed and a plan of therapy can be agreed. Patients receive their treatment on a futon mattress using a range of techniques. These include gentle stretches, guided breathing exercises and application of pressure on key points.

Treatments are a deeply relaxing experience and the patient always has time after a treatment to be still and recuperate before leaving the treatment room.

Depending on the diagnosis, a repeat treatment may be necessary. There may also be a series of exercise that are recommended for patients to complete at home.


Yoga Therapy.

Guidance on an individual programme including specific physical exercises, breathing techniques, relaxation, meditations, self massage and dietary guidance. The emphasis being on what you can do for yourself as the responsibility for developing health and happiness lies within each individual.

Shiatsu & DSY Yoga Bodywork.

Shiatsu and DSY Yoga Bodywork are both a clothes-on form of massage using acupressure, stretching, manipulation, postural alignment and palm healing to relax and stimulate the body’s energy channels (nadis/meridians). This improves circulation, flexibility and posture, promoting one’s own innate self-healing abilities to prevent disease and restore vitality. The treatment relaxes and rejuvenates the body/mind and is particularly helpful to Yoga students, improving suppleness, releasing deep tensions and inducing a meditative level of consciousness.

“Duncan’s shiatsu and yoga therapy sessions have helped me relax and take command of myself rather than being swept along by the tides of modern life. There has also been a marked improvement in the alignment of my body despite having osteoarthritis in my hip.”


Chavutti Thirumal

Chavutti Thirumal – Ayurvedic Foot Pressure Massage.

Duncan studied this unique specialized form of massage with the late Dr B.P. Pillai which was used as part of his institutes holistic yoga therapy programme. The massage technique is mainly given by the masseur’s feet using Ayurvedic oils with progressively strong pressure applied as one long uninterrupted stroke from the hands to feet. Deeply relaxing and rejuvenating the treatment lasts for a minimum of 90 plus minutes including initial consultation time and space afterwards for meditation and a hot bath.
