In this final stage of the shiatsu training, students assume the role of the healer under the guidance of senior faculty.

The focus of this class is learning to read the deepest messages that the body has to tell us, through the lens of Constitutional Type and the textbook Nourishing Destiny by Lonny Jarrett.  Through skillful interviewing combined with effective shiatsu, we can help our clients respond to life freely and spontaneously from a place of inner wisdom.  This level of work allows us to feel completely at peace with the unknown while stil actively choosing and shaping our life.

All the previous training comes to fruition as we learn to lead the dance in a Zen Shiatsu treatment. We will learn to perform a full-body treatment with all our techniques at our disposal, with the focus on reverence, service and attention to spirit.

By the end of this curriculum, graduates will be prepared for professional practice as a solo practitioner or as part of a health care team, ready to communicate effectively with physicians, acupuncturists, nutritionists and yoga therapists, and ready to make referrals where appropriate.

Our approach to team-building is inspired by and geared towards the Integrative medicine model put forward by Andrew Weil. With our partners in the Chicago area Integrative community, we aim to prepare our graduates to participate in this exciting approach to healthcare. Our graduates are prepared to participate in internships and research within the medical community, while maintaining their autonomy as Certified Practitioners of Asian Bodywork.

This class may only be taken as part of the complete Asian Bodywork Certification Program.
