SHIATSU WORKSHOP, Level 2
With Francisco Oliveira
Portugal - 2016
A UNIQUE LEARNING EXPERIENCE IN SHIATSU DEVELOPED TO BE COMBINED WITH TRADITIONAL JAPANESE ACUPUNCTURE
A 3 day Intensive hands on workshop
I have 10 years of shiatsu clinical experience. My studies started as assistant of my first Japanese acupuncture teacher in India. Since 2005, I have been practicing within a clinical setting, this shiatsu protocol that was designed by Edward Obaidey Sensei and Alan Jansson Sensei, inspired on the clinical practice of Masakazu Ikeda Sensei, their long time teacher. During my 10 years of clinical experience, I have been using this protocol combined with Tradicional Japanese acupuncture and Moxabustion. This experience has given me a strong base from which I feel I can teach this amazing healing modality.
Shiatsu is an extraordinarily powerful healing tool that requires basic knowledge of the five elements theory to bring balance and relaxation to the patients.
My aim through this workshop is to provide you with the basic understanding of how to perform a simple protocol of acupressure massage that will be enough to benefit your patient’s health in just about all situations exponentially.
The combination of this shiatsu workshop with the 3-day traditional Japanese acupuncture workshop will be a therapeutically dynamic process and a very unique learning opportunity.
The hands-on nature of shiatsu is extraordinarily beneficial in the application of traditional acupuncture.
I'm overwhelmed to present this shiatsu workshop with Alan Jansson Sensei one of the creators of this particular shiatsu protocol. It has been an honor and a privilege to be Alan's student now for almost 5 years. He's patience, and passion for the art of Traditional Japanese acupuncture makes him an outstanding teacher. His respect for his teacher Masakazu Ikeda Sensei and his sense of profound loyalty for this particular lineage surpasses the brilliant acupuncture teacher that he already is and makes him a solid foundation for respect, diligence and honor.
It is with deep gratitude to our ancestors, primarily Masakazu Ikeda Sensei and a passion born of 12 years of learning and practicing natural therapeutic modalities, that I humbly invite you to join me from the 7th of July for this unique learning experience.
I am looking forward to being of service immensely.
