Shiatsu is a Japanese word meaning “finger pressure”. Shiatsu was developed in Japan in the twentieth century but has its origin in much older Chinese techniques. It is an holistic therapy, working on bringing balance and harmony to body, mind and spirit and helps to prevent stress. When we are healthy, the natural flow of energy, ki, flows through our bodies in a series of channels or meridians. Ki distortions are perceptible as tension, blockages, or shortages and can lead to complaints of physical, emotional or spiritual levels.

This one day workshop is taught by Shiatsu practitioner Tanja Nooteboom, a committed student of macrobiotics including shiatsu, healthy eating cooking classes, oriental diagnosis, Tai – Chi and meridian exercises.

Through a combination of theory and practice – learn the fundamentals of Shiatsu and how to give and receive treatments.
