This is a unique course. Yes, unique because it will get you back in touch with the human connection - something we seem to have lost in our busy lives.
Just think about when was the last time you spent some time exclusively with your partner, your best friend or one of your family members. Long time ago right? Special moments are now rare but they are still the most important thing we have in life. I hope you are with me here…
Shiatsu is a Japanese massage technique done through clothing; it is one of the most relaxing experiences out there, thanks to its firm but gentle pressure, its delicate and calm movements and its stretches.
Learning the basics of Zen Shiatsu is very easy, even if you think you are not a massage person. All you need is some time to watch these videos and the right state of mind. If you can take five minutes to fully relax before treating your friends, you will both have an amazing experience.
You don’t need any previous experience in massage; we’ll start from the ABC of Shiatsu. You just need to find somebody who wants to be spoiled.
It is a journey of personal improvement and knowledge about the body.
We will learn together how to work on:
· The back
· The neck
· The arms and hands
· The shoulders
· The Sacrum
· The legs and
· The feet
We will start by understanding what is pressure in the context of Shiatsu and how we can apply it. We will then learn how to set up a room for our treatments, the parts of our own body we use to deliver our pressure and the shape that our body needs to have to deliver an effective pressure.
Once we understand the basics thoroughly, we will finally work on a person. We will start applying pressure to the back, which is the safest place to start. Step by step, we will work on all the parts of the body.
This course will get you in touch with the fascinating world of anatomy while teaching you a lot about your body as well. You will discover that everybody's body is different and moves in a different way. Very interesting, I can assure you.
We will treat people using our hands, our fingers, our elbows and even our knees, all without messy oils, with the minimum requirement of space and preparation. The idea is to help people relax but also to have fun, keep it light-hearted. That way, you’ll get the best out of it.
At the end of it, you will be able to apply an hour of Shiatsu massage to your loved ones and make them feel special. I love treating people myself but treating my dear ones is another level of satisfaction. You’ll see what I mean.
See you in the course.
