Shiatsu shares many themes with massage, and this course helps you to understand more about these common threads, as well as developing new skills and insights into your work.

Shiatsu literally means finger pressure and draws on the eastern understanding of the body to harmonise energy and promote well-being.

It includes using meridians and acupuncture points, as well as muscle work and stretches. Though usually done on the floor through the clothes, in this workshop we will mainly use the couch and working through cloth as well as  with oils directly on the skin.

The day will include:

    • Understanding how meridians affect the body’s physical energy -e.g. muscles, lymph, specific organs
    • Learning practical techniques which integrate into massage work e.g. stretches, some meridian and point work.
    • Reading body posture through the meridians.
    • Exploring your own energy through self-healing meridian exercises.
    • An introduction to energetic diagnosis.
    • An extensive manual
    • Power point Hand-outs
    • Practical hand-outs.
  • This course is being held in Bristol, at and in conjunction with Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork
