Learn to give Shiatsu to a Friend/Partner

This is an introductory workshop and you don't need to know anything about shiatsu to join.

Shiatsu is a powerful touch based tool which can release both physical and emotional tension. It uses simple and yet effective pressure based techniques to work with the points and energy pathways of Chinese medicine.

Simple to learn and yet effective , you can immediately start using some of its basic skills to enhance your connection with a partner or friend.

We will learn techniques for releasing tension in the shoulders, neck and lower back and connect with your spirit.

For more information on what shiatsu is,  you can read my blog.

What does the workshop involve?

This introductory workshop is run as a live Zoom session and you will have access to the recording for a month afterwards.

You will need to have:

  • a partner to practice with
  • a comfortable space
  • a chair or an exercise ball, whichever is more comfortable
  • wear loose fitting clothing
