Shiatsu is the art of healing by touch

In this course you will be introduced to the basic principles of shiatsu.
You’ll explore different kinds of touch, as well as stretching and moblilizing the recipient’s body.

You’ll learn how to use your entire body – hands, arms, legs, knees, torso – to apply the correct amount of pressure for optimum shiatsu treatment.
To best stimulate the flow of Ki in others it’s important to increase the flow of ki within yourself. To do this, in our warm-up sessions, you’ll learn meridian stretches and Do-In (self-shiatsu).
In giving and receiving shiatsu, you’ll connect with your breathing and with your Hara (center). Through this, you develop more body-awareness and learn how to relax into the processes of giving treatment.

Monika Förster is a shiatsu practioner in private practice for the past eight years.  She also teaches at the Zen Shiatsu Opleiding (Amsterdam).
