This course is an introduction to Shiatsu or acupressure therapy. It is comprehensive enough to allow the therapist to begin practicing Shiatsu upon completion of the seminar. It also lays the foundation for additional training leading to Certification, for those who wish to specialize or excel at this powerful method of healing. Prepare to learn about:
- Qi and it’s functions and it’s dys-functions
- Yin/Yang Theory
- 5 Element Theory, including the Internal Organ/meridian relationship
- 5 Element Circle, including the Generating and Control Cycles
- the direction of energy flow in the channels
- the circadian rhythm of the Qi flow through the channels
- how to trace the course of the channels or meridians, from the first point to the last point on each channel, in circadian order, bilaterally
- methods to tonifiy or sedate energy flow through points and meridians
- various finger, hand, and elbow Shiatsu techniques
- contraindications for Shiatsu therapy
- points that stimulate labor
Shiatsu, while based upon the same theories as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and using the same points as are used in acupuncture, uses fingers instead of needles. This treatment method is very effective on a wide variety of conditions and is a valuable addition to the treatment methods that you are already familiar with. Shiatsu can be used as a singular treatment approach, or it can be incorporated with other treatment methods such as Swedish, Reiki or sports massage to name a few.
