Genevieve Marendaz

Genevieve has been practicing Shiatsu for several years and comes from a background of remedial massage (7 years) and Reiki (20 years, 3rd level).

Shiatsu is a Japanese style of body therapy performed through clothing on a futon. Shiatsu works with the flow of vital lifeforce energy that can be known as Qi, Chi, Ki or Prana. A good starting framework is to understand that Shiatsu utilises the same meridian pathways and underlying system as Traditional Chinese Medicine. Techniques include a variety of compression, stretching and acupressure to release tension and restore systems to a balance.

( It may also utilize cupping (flame or suction), gua sha or moxibustion.

Regular shiatsu can form an integral part of a healthy lifestyle as well as an opportunity to address specific complaints. Genevieve believes strongly in the capacity for shiatsu to not only relax the body and mind, reduce stress and anxiety but also to allow clients to form a deeper connection with their bodies. It is this access with the deeper self that helps clients to listen to the messages their bodies are communicating. Shiatsu is also traditionally used to prevent imbalances in the body, mind and spirit system before they manifest as sickness.


Shiatsu is recommended for:

Muscular tension and pain

Menstrual cycle issues and transitions

As a mind, body & soul integration and support, during or after major life events 

Stress, anxiety and difficulty sleeping

Digestive issues

Providing a space to access deep communion within oneself at a soul level



“With shiatsu I feel as though we are working together, I feel as though I’m in the body I’m meant to be in”

Manipura Sexology - Meg

Meg is the founder of Manipura Sexology and a qualified sexologist with a background in public health and health promotion. Her unique strength is her ability to integrate Eastern and Western models of sexuality to help her clients break free from restrictive sexual norms and expectations. By combining ancient tantric philosophy and practice with comprehensive sexuality education and research, Meg will empower you to grow up and out of unsatisfying sexual patterns, and reclaim your sexual pleasure and power.


During sex and intimacy coaching sessions, Meg provides a safe and confidential space for you to explore and embrace your sexuality without the need to self-censor. She combines talk-based coaching and sexuality education to provide well-rounded and motivating guidance and knowledge. Through this collaborative and dynamic process of learning (and unlearning!), you will be coached through any sexual challenges or blocks, and encouraged to explore new and meaningful ways to reconnect to your true sexuality.  


Depending on your unique situation, strengths and goals, Meg can help you:

  • Increase intimacy in your relationships

  • Build sexual self-esteem

  • Learn how to give and receive sexual pleasure

  • Explore sacred sexuality and tantra

  • Enhance your sexual communication skills and understanding of consent

  • Improve your sexual and reproductive health

  • Awaken your sexual arousal and desire

  • Get to know sex toys and pleasure products.

Your session will always be tailored to suit YOU, and will include goal setting, action planning and exciting resources and “home-play” activities sent to you afterwards.


Working with Meg begins with a free 15-minute call to work out whether you will both be a good fit. To arrange your call, please contact Meg on 0400982192 or at . You can also learn more by visiting
