Giving your loved one a massage is a great way to build trust and relieve stress. Master various massage techniques and give the gift of health in this 2.5-hour Shiatsu massage workshop for couples!
After a long day’s work, you’ll find that Shiatsu massage is an effective way to help one another release tensions from the body and mind. This massage workshop for two focuses on the basics of Shiatsu massage techniques. You will be introduced to the philosophy behind Shiatsu and its unique methods through demonstrations and hands-on practice. Your massage instructor will teach you various techniques that will help to relieve discomfort in the form of neck, shoulder or back pain, headaches, asthmatic symptoms and stress-related symptoms. She will perform each technique on you in turn, giving you the chance to experience for yourself what each move is meant to achieve. You will then practice on one another under her guidance.
The deft use of finger pressure in combination with various stretches and general massage techniques allows Shiatsu to bring the body's yin and yang energies into balance. Soon, you’ll both experience the benefits of better quality sleep and improved digestion, and see a boost in energy levels and overall well-being!
Your massage instructor specialises in traditional Zen Shiatsu, Somatics and is a certified TRE® practitioner. She has studied traditional Zen Shiatsu for over ten years with K.Sasaki, a Japanese master. She is also a member of the EISA (European Iokai Shiatsu Association).
