A 12-hour course

4 Week Course

Zen Shiatsu grows out of the ancient intellectual traditions of Chinese Medicine, and the practice of acupuncture and herbalism.

In our 96-hour Chinese Medicine curriculum, we do an in-depth study of these traditions, to understand the place of Zen Shiatsu within the greater context of Chinese Medicine and learn to communicate fluently with other professionals in the field.

Chinese Medicine - Treatment Modalities, covers powerful accessory techniques which are included on the NCCAOM Asian Bodywork Therapy exam: Cupping, Moxabustion, Gua Sha, and Tui Na. These techniques can be incorporated into a shiatsu treatment or used independently as appropriate for a variety of indications.

•  Cupping
•  Moxibustion
•  Heat/Cold Applications
