Introduction to Shiatsu and Acupressure
with the Shiatsu College Manchester

25th and 26th September
at Bodywise Natural Health Centre

Learn the fundamentals of shiatsu and acupressure, and a routine to practise on family and friends!
Suitable for complete beginners, practitioners of other complementary therapies, and those who have learned some shiatsu or acupressure before.

Shiatsu is a type of bodywork originating in Japan; more recently it has been developed in Japan, the USA and Europe. Shiatsu means ‘finger pressure’ in Japanese, and supportive touch is at the heart of our practice.
We use pressure, stretches, holding, joint mobilisations and rocking, to affect the physical structures of the body. In addition, shiatsu works with the body’s Qi (Chi) – energy, using meridians and acupressure points.
Shiatsu treatment has positive effects on the body’s physical structures and the internal organs, and it can also help the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of our being.
Shiatsu is very versatile and can be tailored to the needs of each individual.

This weekend forms the first part of the one-year Holistic Acupressure course, and the three-year Shiatsu Diploma.

Saturday 10 – 6, Sunday 10.30 – 5.30

Cost for the weekend – £150
