Welcome to Shiatsu...


Become a shiatsu practitioner, enroll in full or part time shiatsu studies at The International School of Shiatsu in Bucks County, PA. In a serene setting, students learn to meditate, visualize, and identify the energy pathways called meridians. In each class, students learn a new concept, observe and then practice the new skills. As part of the training, students also learn to be the receiver of the new techniques so they know how their clients will experience the energy shifts. 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 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.
