Who is Shin Tai International?

We are a husband & wife team that practice and teach shiatsu shin tai in Bucks County, PA. Saul Goodman is the developer of Shin Tai and Shin Tai International. He has taught classes throughout Europe and the U.S. for almost 40 years and runs a private practice in Doylestown, PA. Lynn Goodman, Saul's wife, is also an instructor and practitioner. There are over 30 instructors now teaching Shin Tai throughout the states and Europe, and thousands of Shin Tai practitioners.



Saul Goodman

Saul Goodman, the developer of Shin Tai, is the founder and former director of the International School of Shiatsu, which has branches in over 15 countries. He developed Shin Tai from years of working with the body and discovering the relationship between the body resonance and the flow of life force. Shin Tai offers a unique set of diagnosis and technique to reestablish the proper spatial relationship of the body by activating the client’s own inner force.

Saul is the author of Book of Shiatsu, currently available in 8 languages. He also wrote the advanced bodywork book Shiatsu Shin Tai, which is the main instructional book available for practitioners of Shin Tai. In 1997 the book Light Body Activation was published. It describes vibrational shifts taking place in the current stages of evolution. The book offers dialogue and practices for integrating these shifts and synchronizing our life activities with multidimensional influences.


Lynn Goodman

Lynn Goodman is a Shin Tai practitioner and instructor. She has practiced bodywork for over 20 years. She became involved in touch therapies after years of serious illness. Receiving reflexology treatments changed her life and she immediately began studying in order to heal herself. It organically turned into her livelihood.

She has taught and assisted in classes with Saul now for 10 years as well as running her own private practice. Lynn also takes care of website design, administration and the creation of the online teaching classroom.
