Saturday & Sunday, 10am to 5pm

Learn the basics of Shiatsu in this relaxing weekend course! Shiatsu is traditionally performed on a mat on the floor with the client fully clothed. No oil, massage table or special equipment is required, making Shiatsu a great way to start incorporating bodywork into your daily life. Learn about pressure points in the body and how to work along meridians with your palms, thumbs and elbows. This course is a prerequisite for Advanced Table Shitasu and is recommended to those interested in our Shiatsu Program!
