What you'll learn in this massage class:

In Beginning Zen Shiatsu, we impart the simple ability to be with another human being in a healing context. This class is open to anyone who wants to learn to share this beautiful skill with others.

Every time you lay hands on another human, you have an opportunity to express mindfulness and compassion. You have the ability to spark the intrinsic healing potential of another individual.

In this class, we learn the fundamentals of Yin/Yang (Balance), Ki (Energy), Jing (Essence) and Shen (Consciousness). We study the twelve energy meridians of the body; their associations, functions and major points.

Most importantly, we learn how to facilitate change without manipulation using the principles of Zen Shiatsu. We learn how to take our cues from the receiver and achieve effective, supportive contact. We learn how to attune ourselves to the energy of ourself and our neighbors. You will be able to open an energetic circuit, tonify deficiency and calm excesses. By the end of the class, you will be able to give a full-body treatment.

Through self-care exercises, hands-on techniques and discussion, you will take your first steps towards understanding Chinese Medicine and Zen Shiatsu. This class is a self-contained learning experience and is also the foundation for our Shiatsu Certification Program.

Although there are many layers of complexity to these practices, everything you need to be a healer is contained in this one class. Cultivate a Zen Mind, a Beginner's Mind, and approach your receiver ready to learn.

"If your mind is empty, it is always ready for anything; it is open to everything. In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities; in the expert's mind there are few." - Shunryu Suzuki, Soto Zen Master
