This is a “save your hands” course!

Therapists receive individualized instruction in body mechanics unique to mat work to prevent repetitive strain injury to their knees and back. You will learn Japanese Shiatsu in the Prone position utilizing hand, forearm, knee, and foot options. Prior experience in mat work is not required. Principles of Chinese Medicine guide Japanese Shiatsu and Therapists will be introduced to traditional concepts of Ki development and balancing. The Kidney & Urinary Bladder, Gallbladder and Small Intestine Primary Meridians (of the 14 Circuit Flow) will be viewed and studied within context of a sequenced bodywork routine. Japanese Anma Massage techniques called “hand music”, Classical Shiatsu Meridian Stretches and Manual Joint Therapy will be learned for balancing energy flow. Tsubo’s (acupoints) are a separate and advanced study, but palpation and activation of a Tsubo point will be introduced and a selection of common points used for health and wellness will be provided. Although this course is taught traditionally on Floor/Mat, Therapists have option to bring their own massage table and practice at their own comfort level.
