Shiatsu is a manipulative therapy developed in Japan and incorporating techniques of anma (Japanese traditional massage), acupressure, stretching, and Western massage. This therapy is considered holistic because it attempts to treat the whole person instead of a specific medical complaint. All types of acupressure generally focus on the same pressure points and so-called energy pathways, but may differ in terms of massage technique. Students will learn the fundamentals of Shiatsu on different parts of the body in the sitting and lying postures, and how to modify the moves from the floor to the massage table. They will also learn proper body mechanics to keep them safe and healthy.
