Develop the skills you'll need to become a successful practitioner. Through video and text you'll discover the differences between shiatsu and massage in both philosophy and technique, identify different styles of shiatsu, review meridians, various shiatsu treatments, and proper body mechanics. The video portion of this program reinforces the treatments described in the textbook so that you can see specific applications and techniques being performed as well as review a sample pre-treatment interview.
This program provides comprehensive coverage of all shiatsu essentials along with nearly 2 hours of video showing specific applications and techniques for you to practice along.
This course was full of interesting information, easily understood, but so informative! The video was integral and explained clearly what was expressed in the manual. Such new information will take time to fully understand, but one can continue to review the information. The workbook at the end of each chapter added to the learning. This was an excellent course!
Excellent book and course. Included a DVD which is of great value. This course was very interesting. I have previously taken a Shiatsu class back over 10 years ago and this was a wonderful refresher. I can't wait to practice shiatsu again.
This subject matter is very deep and takes more time to study in depth
I have really appreciated the staff at the Institute for their support, and helping with questions any time I call. Their timeliness in answering the phone is amazing. My only concern with this class is the second wrong question by the author of the questions that I found, #87, and I will be calling to allow them to remedy the structure of that question also. (#84 & 87 total) I teach my clients about the body, so my being able to proofread and communicate verges on OCD! As for the number of hours it took for this particular class, I stopped counting. I was so intrigued with the parts that I had not learned all those years ago when I first took a hands on class in Shiatsu, that I would go back & forth to the different sections to put the pieces together for the people in my practice. 30+/- hours is not the actual number. Amazingly well written and presented in book form ~ thank you!

Always impressed by the quality of the material, and especially the availability of Asian bodywork courses.
Excellent text. I will use it again and again.

Oh my goodness, what a lot of material!! So fascinating, I have some knowledge of meridians but the Chinese/Japanese medicine aspect was so interesting to me. It would take many more hours to really understand all of this, but the book will be an excellent reference source and I will go back to it often to increase my knowledge

Excellent course!!! I have practiced massage therapy for 31 1/2 years- my experience in deep tissue, acupressure, Tai-Chi and Qi-gong really helped!!!
