Traditional floor work utilizing many applications of sustained foot pressure utilizing the balancing advantage of a wooden staff.

Barefoot Shiatsu is mat work, integrating the use of feet, knees, and elbows for the purpose of applying sustained pressure. We follow general pathways of the classical meridians, focusing on typical stagnant and muscularly tight areas. Techniques will be demonstrated in supine, prone and side-lying positions. Emphasis is given towards fluidity of transition, and the seamless rhythmic application of techniques. Participants will enjoy the freedom of using the whole body, will learn strategies to take the burden off their thumbs and wrists, and will learn deep and relaxing techniques to benefit a wide range of clients.

Shiatsu

Derived from traditional Japanese massage, shiatsu is a popular modality that combines the concept of energy meridians with comprehensive massage. The word “shiatsu” means “finger pressure” and refers to the practitioner using fingers, thumbs and palms to alter energy flow along meridians, or channels for life energy along the body. The modality also incorporates assisted stretching and joint mobilization.

You can expect to invest about 100 credit hours in continuing education to become a shiatsu practitioner. Forms like Zen shiatsu emphasize mind-body balance while Thai shiatsu teaches more comprehensive stretching. Once you know the core modality, you can branch out into techniques like cupping, end-of-life care, and cosmetic facial shiatsu.
