When East blends with West: bringing Shiatsu into table massage

This weekend workshop invites bodyworkers to view the receiver’s body from a wider perspective - one that includes ki (chi) flowing through meridians. We will explore the concept of ki and how to move ki through arms and legs using meridian stretches and acupressure points in the hands and feet. We will discover the benefits of hara work on our own ki and our client’s through exercises and gentle palpation and stimulation of the abdomen. The material of this weekend can be incorporated seamlessly into massage treatments. We will be working on tables. Please wear loose fitting clothes for ease of movement.
