Level 4 - Osteopathic, Inner Techniques and Hara-Diagnosis

Course content

The focus of this course is the introduction to the basic osteopathic techniques and to the Internal Techniques as essential elements of our Shiatsu. The focus is on examination techniques and techniques for working with all sections of the spine and their connection to the occiput, the sacrum as well as the pelvis. The main focus is to allow the body more mobility and space. The participants learn a whole bundle of osteopathic basic techniques with which they can work in this sense. A first approach to the cranial area is introduced. Another focus is the introduction to the Inner Techniques of Shiatsu, which will facilitate the handling of one's own body space, one's own inner alignment and the contact with energetic structures like the meridians. In addition, with the Hara diagnosis, another element of energetic diagnosis is introduced.

Course aim

At the end of this course you will:
  • experience the depth of the meridian as an energetic structure and be present there in the meridian work
  • touch in a relaxed way from the depth of one's own space
  • use one's own inner alignment more purposefully
  • offer an appropriate treatment dynamic
  • understand the nature of energetic perception more deeply and be able to apply this in practice
  • treat local complaints with simple local techniques
  • be able to examine the spine, sacrum and pelvis for blockages and movement restrictions
  • have techniques to treat blockages in the spine in a targeted manner
  • have techniques to touch imbalances in the sacrum and pelvis in a targeted manner
  • be able to use basic cranial techniques
  • use the Hara diagnosis as an important source of information in your treatments
