Shiatsu therapy has reserved its powerful therapeutic value along with acupuncture in the US massage field since 1970. This eastern origin energetic medicine has gained an important role in holistic medicine for issues such as sports injuries and every day common complains. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn my Anma long form and Shiatsu short form as a kata sequence of healing arts. Shiatsu-Anma therapy is one of the most effective ways to manage every day increasing stress. Your clients will love all the techniques. Join our class to get started learning pressure points and how to apply them for all kinds of pains and aches.

You will focus on understanding the basic skills, theory, techniques to support your clients.  Come learn and practice various techniques on massage tables that can be integrated into other modalities or be practiced on their own. Emphasis will be given on self-practice, sensing body conditions, correct bodywork and simplicity in understanding the body.
