Adding Shiatsu to your massage will supercharge your work!
Shiatsu is a deeply powerful and complete form of bodywork, respected worldwide and based on thousands of years of empirical data. What’s more profound is that the meridian system and its specific acu-points have a deep influence on our musculature, the internal organ conditions and the immune and nervous systems. The meridian lines and acu-points are considered extensions of the internal organs so learning the points that enhance their functioning makes all the sense in the world. Join us for this one day workshop, where Larry will teach you how to add the most powerful shiatsu lines and points to supercharge your Swedish massage.
The first 8,000 massage treatments I performed in my career were Traditional Barefoot Shiatsu sessions. I had studied for years with the Macrobiotic and Japanese Masters Michio Kushi and Sensei Masahiro Oki and was amazed at their breadth of wisdom, power and effectiveness. There wasn’t any type of overhead bar or other props in the early 1970’s and you did not walk on your client’s body. Instead it was a very sophisticated form of bodywork using many parts of your own body to treat your client while concentrating on the energy lines called meridians and specific acupuncture points called tsubos. — Larry Heisler, M.A., LMT
