Shiatsu Intro Day

1 day intro into Shiatsu. Here you will learn the basics of Shiatsu.

You will learn skills such as:

  • How to palm
  • How to use your thumb
  • How to stretch 
  • How to move from your hara


This will be a fun filled day of doing basic Shiatsu on the floor on a futon.
You will learn a simple routine for both prone and supine. 
You will learn a bit of theory and history of Shiatsu but my goal is to make this mostly a practical hands on day.
This will be suitable for people with no experience in massage or body work and people with a therapy background who wish to test out if Shiatsu is right for them.
