Shoulders and back
With Francisco Oliveira
Mafra, Portugal - July 5, 6 and 7, 2016
Shiatsu protocol for acute shoulder stiffness, frozen shoulder and lower back pain
Last year we went through a basic acupressure protocol that covers all the main meridians and easily fits in a traditional Japanese acupuncture treatment. We covered briefly the 5-element theory and the basic organ meridian relationships.
In this next workshop we will cover more deeply each organ/ meridian relationship. This will provide an understanding of when to use basic shiatsu protocols for specific conditions in traditional Japanese acupuncture treatments.
During this workshop we will cover the structure of Shiatsu protocols for acute shoulder stiffness, frozen shoulder and lower back pain. We will cover the basic diagnostic to be done in each condition and acupressure points to be use in each case.
Also we will cover pressure:
(1) The Principle of Vertical Pressure
(2) The Principle of Holding Pressure
(3) The Principle of Supporting Pressure
Finally we will speak about quick shiatsu and slow shiatsu and when better to be applied.
A workbook will be provided with all the notes needed.
