Shiatsu is an ancient form of therapeutic bodywork that uses pressure, stretching and structural manipulations to balance energy (also called ki or chi). Shin Tai is an innovative form of shiatsu developed by Saul Goodman over the last 35 years. It focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of the governing vessel & conception vessel meridians.

We also offer training in Light Body Activation, a unique system of meditative exercise. Align with your power and purpose by learning how to expand and adjust your developing energy system. Learning to interface with your light body is vital to maintaining balance and strength in daily life, and is one of the most potent ways to generate personal and planetary health.

It is very special to be able to connect with you like this, and with practitioners from all over the world! Watching a technique for a few minutes between treatments is inspiring - there are so many great techniques that I had forgotten about, ones that I am learning useful refinements to play with, and some that are altogether new to me. One of my clients yesterday asked me to thank you!

Deb Rampton, Shiatsu/Shin Tai practitioner, England

Thank you for the great idea of online courses to make it possible to learn with you. I think it's a wonderful way to study more about shiatsu. I have found the site very clear and easy to use. I am so grateful and happy to be part of this new era of your teaching.

Jurij Kazantzis, Shiatsu practitioner; Costa Rica

Your classes are always easy to follow; everything makes sense. And your connection to the whole being that we are interacting with is so inspiring. Learning from you live in a classroom is terrific, but what I'm appreciating about this video class is the ability to repeat exactly what you just said (several times if I need to).
