What is Hado Shiatsu?

In the Japanese tradition, Hado is the innate transforming power of each thing and each living being. The literal translation of the Kanji is “wave–like movement, vibration”.  Hado Shiatsu is the method developed by Patrizia, combining scientific inquiry with the direct experience of life energy.  In Hado Shiatsu we can experience life as a dynamic network of energy and information traveling through organic liquid crystals and inducing biological processes.  Patrizia will present her practical approach and show how it is possible to “whisper to cells”.


Human Systems as Quantum Systems: 
Supporting Health by Improving Coherence

In this 5-day experience, we will go deeper into fully experiencing the reality of other humans as energetic fields, learning practically how to resonate with and perceive the quantum properties of water and light.  We will move far beyond thinking about the theory into the direct experience of the reality of a human being.

Patrizia will review the history and evolution of shiatsu from Masunaga’s methods to Pauline Sasaki’s Quantum Shiatsu, to her own research and development of Hado Shiatsu.  

You will learn specialized observation methods for monitoring the emission of light from a person and how to use that information in our shiatsu assessment.  We will learn to deepen our empathic connection to our receivers through the direct experience of quantum coherence and the liquid crystal state of a person.

You will be better able to recognize the fundamental unity of every cell with each other cell and of every human being with their environment.  You will be ready to help each client relate to beauty inside and outside of themselves.

We hope this experience will leave you with a renewed sense of wonder toward life that will become a natural part of your therapeutic practice!

The class will include practical application of the theory: case histories proposed by the teacher and by the participants, as well as applications for practice in commonly encountered clinical situations. 

Participants will study:

  • Meridians and their relationship to light
  • How to monitor organic light fields
  • How to connect empathically with our receivers
  • Practical Applications in common clinic scenarios
  • Research, articles, videos, books and other sources for further study


Instructor Bio - Patrizia Stefanini

Patrizia Stefanini is the founder of the European Shiatsu Institute in Italy.  She earned her Ph.D. in Biophysics at the University of Milan. 

Patrizia became involved in the shiatsu world in 1983, starting out as a student of Ohashi then afterwards Pauline Sasaki. Patrizia’s shiatsu has developed to become rich with references to the fundamental theories of modern Physics, and their relevance to Asian disciplines and philosophies.

Author of numerous articles translated into several languages, she is presently working on research projects which place some of the Quantum Physics and Biophysics theories as the basis of an original human energy model. This work is in collaboration with scientists from the International Institute of Biophysics in Neuss, Germany and the National Institute of Nuclear Physics in Milan, Italy.
