I believe that together we can give back to our local community and make a positive impact

Mental Health Statistics for Derbyshire


All areas of Derbyshire are comparable or worse than the English average for prevalence of common mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression. There are an estimated 80,000 individuals suffering from mental health problems in Derbyshire. All districts of Derbyshire (except South Derbyshire) have higher rates of disability and long term health conditions as compared to England.

Derbyshire Dales has the worst access to GPs based on average travel time to a GP, which impacts on take up of services such as Increasing Access to Psychological Therapy programmes.

As part of our commitment to supporting our local community we operate a 'Buy One Give Towards One' option.


The Buy One Give Towards One concept is really straightforward. Every time you have a treatment you have the option to donate towards a treatment for someone suffering from a mental health challenge and who is unable to afford a treatment. This is mainly aimed at local people in Derbyshire and The Shiatsu Bus meets the first 20% of the cost of the donated treatment. I hope many of you will enjoy making a real positive impact on our local communities together by joining me in the Shiatsu Bus  Buy One Give Towards One business model!


Shiatsu is a physical therapy that supports and strengthens the body’s natural ability to heal and balance itself. It works on the whole person - not just with the physical body, but also with the psychological, emotional and spiritual aspects of a person too.

Is Shiatsu right for me?

Some of my wonderful clients

Maya mid 50's cured of numbness in arms and hands with Shiatsu

Maya, mid 50's

After having done some manual work, I started experiencing numbness in my arms and hands. The pain was so great that I struggled with writing - affecting my work. I saw several professionals, but the situation was not improving. My full-time work also prevented me from approaching therapists that could support me. I was left in pain and not knowing what to do. I then found Dan.... read more.

Client Cynthis, lats 60's explaining how Shiatsu Therapy relived her hip pain

Cynthia, late 60's

I had my first visit from the Shiatsu Bus in June 2020 with a persistent pain in my hip and groin area. It was stopping me enjoying the tennis and golf which I love so much and my garden which I live for. It was also painful at night. I was certain that I would be told that I might need a new hip, or that it was just "wear and tear expected at your age" ( I was 66 years old). Dan was very professional in his approach ... read more.

PAT Testimonial Shiatsu massage relived pack pain

Pat, early 50's

Before I went to see Dan I had been in constant pain for about 18 months. I tried an Osteopath and a Physiotherapist (who didn't manage to get to the bottom of my constant nagging back pain), and a deep tissue massage which helped but it was very difficult to get an appointment with her. The painkillers I was prescribed helped temporarily mask some of the symptoms but  .... read more.

Jean early 80's helped to regain a resonable level of walking on The Shiatsu Bus

Jean, early 80's

I would like to both thank you for your attention and congratulate you on the treatment I received which has enabled me to resume a satisfactory level of mobility. Having reached the age of 82, had two hip replacements and subsequently three dislocations I had almost despaired of regaining a reasonable level of walking but thanks to your initial assessment and subsequent treatment I am now ... read more.
