This certified course integrates traditional Zen Shiatsu with advanced energy work and chakra healing. Zen Shiatsu and polarity resonance are rooted in Oriental Medicine with it’s notions of energetic movement, Meridians, Acupuncture points and Chakras; energy channels, points and vortexes.

These informational fields are stimulated through touch, technique, intention, empathy and energetic input. Healing naturally follows, bringing new energy, movement, blood and consciousness into the hidden parts of the body/mind and releasing corresponding blockages. The deeply relaxing effect allows for healing on all levels including the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies.
Zen Shiatsu is Energy Medicine at the deepest level working directly with the life force thereby enabling that profound healing of body, mind and soul. This leads to tremendously effective healings of many common ailments and illnesses as well as chronic and degenerative diseases such as back pain, IBS, constipation, Crohn’s disease, asthma, skin problems, bloating, insomnia, period pains, headaches, stress, anxiety and even arthritis and cancer.
The course follows the European Shiatsu Federation’s core syllabus and is based on hands-on, experiential understanding of Diagnosis and Treatment with pure theory making up 20% of each days program.
