Training: Certificate in Japanese Massage
Certificate in Japanese Massage: 180 IMTA CPD points, Level 1 of Shiatsu Diploma Course
Weekend classes take place monthly over 10 weekends starting 20th Sept 2014
This is a stand-alone Certificate course in Shiatsu. It is the first stage of a three year programme that will allow you to become a fully qualified Shiatsu Practitioner. This year focuses on developing your awareness of the client’s body with emphasis on using the traditional methods of the Japanese massage therapy called Shiatsu.
The basis of this training comes from the teachings of Shiatsu and Japanese bodywork and an understanding of anatomy. Experiential Shiatsu – giving and receiving- is the core of the course. Each module has a distinct emphasis and theme. They are designed so that some modules can be taken individually. for a deeper, more integrated learning, we strongly advise you to consider several or all modules. Students must complete all modules and assessments in order to receive their certificate.
By the end of this certificate year you will be:
- Competent in offering a relaxing, rejuvenating shiatsu treatment to clients for optimum health.
- Proficient in a range of Ki enhancing exercises that provide energy and body awareness and that support health and stamina.
- Familiar with the theories of Yin & Yang, Ki energy and the classical meridian system.
