Learn to give and receive a deeply healing and rejuvenating massage in this fun and practical workshop. No need to come with a partner! Shiatsu massage is a bodywork technique intended to balance and open up the body, as well as calm the mind. Shiatsu is deeply therapeutic for both the giver and the receiver and involves both massage and assisted stretching.
Typical benefits include:
• Reduced stress and greater sense of calm
• Increased energy
• Enhanced flexibility and range of motion
• Improved circulation
• Focused and relaxed mind
In the workshop you will give and receive an hour of massage, learning different bodywork techniques. During the massage, the receiver will lie on the floor, fully clothed, and the giver will use their thumbs, palms, elbows, lower arms and feet to press and stretch the receiver’s body. The receiver will relax whilst the giver concentrates their attention on the massage and works intuitively, easing into a focused and calm state.
Shiatsu massage is beneficial for everyone, you don’t need to be a yoga practitioner or excel in any physical activities to participate in the workshop. All you need is some curiosity and the openness to have your healing touch on another human being.
Claire trained with the European School of Shiatsu in 1998 gaining a certificate in the theory and practice of Shiatsu bodywork. She looks forward to sharing this beautiful technique and workshop with you.
