Welcome to Shiatsu...

 

Located in Bucks County, PA, the International School of Shiatsu offers hands-on career training for those who are looking to create a fulfilling career that nurtures and encourages people to maximize their health and wellness. By learning the meridian pathways and assessing the priority, practitioners learn to move the old stress patterns, move the chi and allow the client to live more fully in the present. The goal is for the students and the clients to become more fully engaged in their lives. Students enjoy the hands-on learning and immediate feedback. As they become more skilled, students learn to create individualized sessions for a client's current condition. Students use palm pressure, thumb pressure and sometimes knee pressure along the energy pathways to clear stagnation and create a balance of energy for the clients. Students receive enthusiastic feedback as clients feel energized, relaxed and empowered. Best of all, students experience the same as they receive shiatsu in classes. Students learn to work from the hara and the heart, helping individuals and their communities. Shiatsu is an amazing career option.
Since shiatsu considers the whole life story of the clients, the 850 hour curriculum includes Masunaga's Zen Shiatsu, Kushi's Macrobiotics, Saul Goodman's Shiatsu Shin Tai and theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Energy development includes Qigong, Do-in, Meridian stretches, Eight Pieces of Brocade, and Healing Sounds. Students learn to look for root causes of imbalances and then gently guide the client to make better choices.
