Level 10 - Therapeutic concepts in your Shiatsu practice

Course content

In this course the meridian free orientation is combined with meridian work and osteopathic techniques. This happens on the basis of the perception of the whole person in her/his body space; the therapist decides which of the available techniques (energetic kyo-jitsu patterns, meridian Shiatsu or osteopathic techniques) s/he wants to use in any given case.
Energetic work is deepened. For this level students prepare topics about concrete diseases or complaints and present them in written form and as a short lecture in front of the class. Topics such as "What is health and what is disease?", "No intention" or "How does Shiatsu actually work?" are looked at more closely. Visions and plans for after the training are shared and discussed.

Course aim

At the end of this course you will:
  • be able to connect meridian work with meridian free Shiatsu with kyo and jitsu patterns and with osteopathic techniques
