Shiatsu for Emotions (Shiatsu Emocional) Workshop – Creete, Greece on November


The aim of the seminar/workshop is to teach the essence of Eastern wisdom to a select group of people who wish to improve their emotional stability, rethink the course of their lives, find peace and inner balance and positively influence everyone around them. For Shiatsu / bodyworker practitioners the seminar is a powerful tool that optimizes their work and deeply integrates body and emotion in just one session.

Shiatsu is a therapy based on the holistic system of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It originated in Japan and is practiced in many parts of the world.

“Shiatsu for Emotions” is a journey through the senses which brings meaning to energetic theories. It is a Shiatsu method focusing on emotional processes and development.

This method relates Traditional Chinese Medicine principles used by Shiatsu to modern psychology theories and addresses the psychosomatic issues of Shiatsu. Its objective is to provide an in-depth study of the relationships between energetic channels and emotions and bring harmony and balance to both the recipient and its practitioner. Shiatsu for Emotions teaches different mechanisms of diagnosis and contributes towards therapies and holistic approaches.

It is recommended to all professionals who work with TCM, Shiatsu, as well as any other health professions, such as body therapists who wish to see beyond the physical horizon, psychologists who want to use a physical approach and to any one else wishing to broaden their knowledge and consequently have an improved quality of life.
