9 days course (3 weekends)




"Shiatsu" in Japanese means; pressure with finger. The method was developed in Japan on the 20th century and was based on the principles of Chinese medicine. The shiatsu treatment is made by palpating different areas in the body and on the meridians and their association areas. This pressure stimulates the patient's natural energy and bringing it back to balance.

The course is divided to three levels and each level is based on its previous. It is not possible to take it partly. The course is based on theory but most of it is practical.
