This class further expands the practitioner’s knowledge by integrating the use of tsubos, or pressure points, when practicing Shiatsu. Basic functions derived from the elemental representation of the points will be introduced. Understanding the physical and spiritual functions of the points will bring a powerful level of connection and awareness to your practice and increase results with your clients.
Objectives of the course include:
• Makka Ho exercises will be practiced to encourage continued self-care.
• The anatomy and Physiology of the 12 main meridians will be reviewed.
• Elemental correspondences of the tsubos as well as the luo-connecting points will be introduced.
