In this home study course, you will learn the art and practice of a specific style of clinical Shiatsu called Shiatsu Anma. Based on both the theory of acupressure energetics originating from Chinese medicine and massage techniques of Japanese origin, Shiatsu Anma Therapy addresses illnesses and painful conditions in the body stemming from blockages in the flow of energy, or chi, within the acupuncture meridian (channel) system.
You will learn how to assess the body's energy channel system with regard to deficiency and excessive states and apply appropriate techniques that restore the balance of chi within the body. As the flow of chi is re-established in the channel system, pain is relieved and the healing process of the body begins.
The manual that accompanies the DVD presentation in this instructional program contains pertinent information with regard to the theory, application, and specific treatment techniques and sequences for several painful conditions. A review of Yin/Yang theory and Meridians is included both in the video and the manual to help familiarize you with the fundamentals of this practice. A laminated Acupuncture Chart that depicts the meridians as well as specific points on the channels is included as a useful reference when working with the various channels and points.
Great course. I can apply 2 fingers-theory and techniques during my treatment. The knowledge on figuring out Excess/ Deficiency, then what channels to apply, is very helpful.
