This Introduction to Shiatsu and Acupressure course is aimed at those with an interest in Shiatsu and hands-on bodywork. Rooted in traditional Oriental Medicine, shiatsu incorporates the use of acupressure points to harmonize the energy or ki of the body by using direct pressure - usually from the thumbs or palms.

What will I learn?

Introduction to Shiatsu and Acupressure aims to give a basic understanding of the following principles:

  • Connecting to the flow of ki (energy).
  •  The dynamic of Yin and Yang within all things - including ourselves!
  •  The application of a variety of Acupressure points on the body.
  •  How to give a basic Acupressure treatment to friends and family.
