Shiatsu 1 : Meridian Theory
October 10, 2019 at 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Thursday, repeating until December 19, 2019
Shiatsu is an ancient healing art that uses finger pressure along meridian lines to help restore the bodies natural harmony and healing abilities. This session is traditionally done fully clothed on a futon mat, but can be adapted to a table as well. Through the use of pressure, breathing, stretching and lifestyle suggestions, our goal is bring awareness and balance.
The method taught follows the tradition of Zen Shiatsu from the master Shizuto Masunaga, who was very interested in 5 element theory and psycho-dynamics of the energy meridians. Students will learn how to use various parts of their bodies in order to give pressure, including the elbows, knees and feet (barefoot shiatsu). Level 2 will also focus on bigger mobilizations, stretches, and structural katas.
