On-site Seated Shiatsu Course

25th January - 10:00 am - 26th January - 5:00 pm

25th -26th January, 15th -16th February and Saturday 14th March 2020

This is a comprehensive 5-day course covering Shiatsu treatment in the seated position for people who have completed at least Year 1 of a recognised Shiatsu Training programme.
Unlike other on-site programmes which teach a set routine, our intention in developing the On-site Shiatsu course has been to teach a variety of techniques so that course participants learn to give tailor-made, appropriate treatments to each individual client. We teach the use of on-site chairs, and also ordinary seats and stools, so that you can give an effective treatment anywhere.
Course content includes:
  • Shiatsu Theory: Revision of Yin-Yang and Ki energy, Five Elements, Oriental Diagnosis: postural & facial diagnosis, taking a case history, Yu point touch diagnosis.
  • Practical Technique: a Basic Framework routine which uses traditional arm, neck & shoulder meridians plus some Zen extensions, stretches and rotations, function and location of 30 acupoints. In addition we encourage you to use your existing knowledge to tailor treatments to clients.
  • Professional Development: contraindications, Health & Safety, Code of Ethics, insurance, aftercare and recommendations.
  • Anatomy & Physiology: relevant Anatomy & Physiology for the head, neck & shoulder area, skeletal, muscular, circulatory, lymphatic, nervous systems, respiration & skin.
  • Intended Learning Outcome
    By the end of the course you will be able to:
    Apply the principles of Oriental Diagnosis to create an appropriate 20 – 45 minute treatment.
     Diagnose excess or deficient Ki in the meridians by using Yu points.
     Work smoothly on relevant traditional arm, neck & shoulder meridian.
     Perform stretches & rotations effectively and within the range of client comfort.
     Choose and use Acupoints as relevant to the client’s condition.
  •  Give aftercare recommendations.

    Certification Requirements:

     Complete 20 treatments & present treatments notes for each.
     Pass Anatomy & Physiology, and Health & Safety assignments (worksheets).
