  • There will be three separate classes, one in Spring, one in Summer, one in Fall.  
  • All hours count for CE credit for Illinois license renewals.
  • Each one is a 30-hour class, priced at $480. ($16 per hour!)

Spring 2018: Finding Classical Channels by Feel - 30 hours
April 3 - June 12 (Skip April 24), Tuesdays 2:30-5:30
Do you sometimes wish you knew for sure if you are really on the meridian? Do you wish you felt secure enough in your hand’s sensitivity to trust that you found the point? Do you wish there was another way to learn meridian and point locations besides memorizing anatomical landmarks? Then let’s turn your wishes into reality!

We will review composing a treatment from the standpoint of how to comprehensively treat the whole body from the center out, bringing integration and healthy flow to all of the joints and fluid spaces of the body.

Skill-building will include: finding the most effective angles, recognizing when your touch has penetrated into the whole body, confidently finding and treating the whole channel between each point, not just "point-to-point'. 
Prerequisite: Beginning Zen Shiatsu

Summer 2018: Finding Masunaga Extensions by Feel - 30 hours
June 26 - August 28, Tuesdays 2:30-5:30
This class will proceed through the Masunaga Extensions.  The details of the extensions are often lost by graduates after graduation.  It’s very much worth re-connecting with these channels at a deeper level, because they provide access to some of the strongest transformation and re-shaping of the body through treatment of the torso and joints.

Skill-building will include: finding and treating all the Masunaga extensions with the same precise touch refined in the first module.  
Prerequisite: Zen Shiatsu III

Fall 2018: Student Clinic 3 - 30 hours
September 11 - November 13, Tuesdays 2:30-5:30
We will culminate the series with 30 hours of supervised student clinic, bringing all of your skills to bear in treatments supervised by Winter Jade.  Her precise attention to the energy of both the practitioner and client is amazing.  It’s really a joy to watch her at work in the clinic.  She will provide in-the-moment assistance with building a treatment plan and adapting techniques to the needs of each client.  By the end of this module, you will feel that you have truly applied and internalized all the techniques refined this year.  
Prerequisite: Advanced Zen Shiatsu
