Programs offered at Shiatsu Tokyo

We teach the history of shiatsu, the basis of the treatment, and the ways to put pressure on various parts of the body. In addition to the basic ways to apply pressure, we teach other massage skills that can be used in everyday life, which will help you learn the feel of shiatsu.

What you can learn at the Experiencing Course:

1. Oriental ideas about the body

3. Basic treatment for back to waist, which are the most

        important areas when you are on your stomach

5. Shiatsu treatment for legs  

(prevention of swelling,which is popular for women)

7. Shiatsu for arms when you are on your back

        (pressing effective acupressure points)

2. Basic flow of shiatsu 

          (teaching effective acupressure points)

4. Treatment around shoulders

         (be careful of the direction of where to put pressure)

6. Shiatsu for legs when you are on your back            (let’s learn with fun!)

8. Tapping to prevent muscle pain caused

         in reaction to excess massaging

We explain in detail. Your fingers feel muscles and you continuously make pressure with fingers vertically to the body while pressing down with your weight. Please try to keep a beautiful posture.

*We teach effective acupressure points for treatment of each part of the body and we teach it with the best of intentions. So, please refrain from attending this course if you are not serious. Please have fun while learning it seriously.

We would like to teach in detail, so this course is conducted in small groups and the maximum number of students is 4.

Half-day Course 

 (9:00 – 12:00) or (13:00 – 16:00)

Needless to say, it is impossible to become a shiatsu professional in one day.

You will be able to lean some shiatsu techniques, including the order of treatment, and how to position yourself when giving shiatsu.

For those who take this course, we give some gifts, including a textbook and a shiatsu movie. Please keep practicing with these gifts.

Shiatsu is a massage therapy unique to Japan. It developed from Anma massage around 700

Anma massage being given by several people, even with feet (around 1700)

Procedural textbooks of shiatsu were published around 1700, and then its practice spread

Currently, to be a shiatsu therapist requires becoming nationally qualified in Japan. Those who want to be a shiatsu therapist go to school to learn about skills and courses, and then they have to pass a national exam. All the courses and exams are conducted in Japanese; therefore, it is difficult for foreigners to learn shiatsu in Japan.

Due to these circumstances, we offer a place where foreign people can experience shiatsu in Japan. When you go back to your country, please give treatment to your friends. They will be surprised.

Japan is an island nation consisting of one nation and one main ethnic group

Japan kept developing its own culture.

Japan avoided trading with other countries for a long period of time in the past

Loving beauty and nurturing “stillness” is an important part of Japanese culture

There is still a lot of Japanese culture that foreigners don’t know

Therefore, please experience shiatsu and spread it to your family and friends
