Shiatsu (full training)

The purpose of shiatsu is to promote the proper circulation of vital energy in the body, mainly in the meridian network. This network monitor various physiological and psychological functions. An energy imbalance thus causes various discomforts to the body and the mind. To this extent, shiatsu goes beyond simple massage and is intended as a form of prevention and relief from various ailments. It is performed through pressure, mobilization and stretching on the recipient's body. Shiatsu is practiced on a futon on the floor and the receiver remains clothed. Originally from Japan, shiatsu is also inspired by traditional Chinese medicine. The training provides notions on the theory of the five elements and teaches how to use them in shiatsu. Beyond the maneuvers and knowledge acquired, the training also allows the student to develop his quality of presence and his intuition, thanks to the various exercises and meditations offered.
