Frequently Asked Questions

Are these courses for me?
These courses are for you if you have an interest in learning traditional and contemporary shiatsu abdominal treatment. The materials presented provide a powerful protocol for increasing the health of your clients and offering them a unique level of healing.
I already have a bodywork practice (massage, shiatsu, craniosacral, chiropractic, etc.). Will this course bring anything new to me?
Most students who take our online courses are already bodyworkers. The unique theory and application of technique in Shiatsu Shin Tai can add to your repertoire and increase the effectiveness of the modality you already practice. In other words, you will learn ideas which can be applied to many kinds of technique and treatment. Plus, you will learn new techniques which can be integrated into your treatments.
I have already taken live classes in hara treatment with Saul or another Shin Tai instructor. Will this course contribute anything new to my understanding?
These courses covers material generally given in the first days of the Shin Tai class 'Conception Vessel/Hara.' So if you took that class, most of the techniques will not necessarily be new for you. Many of them will be presented with new variations. Having them presented on video so you can watch them again and again does provide an opportunity for you to understand and remember the material better. And if you adopt a beginner's mind, you may find you learn new things about each technique that you may have missed in class! The main value lies in the observation of the treatments themselves. To watch the techniques and the response in the receiver is one of the best ways to absorb a deeper understanding of what Shiatsu Shin Tai bodywork is all about. Take your time to observe Saul's technique and how he works with the body. It will pay off in increasing your skills, perception, and results.
When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and continues for years. It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. We expect to maintain this course site for many years to come.
What if I am unhappy with my purchase?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.

Hara Treatment: A Potent Opportunity

Hara treatment is one of the most effective ways to improve someone's condition. By applying the techniques in this course along with its unique theory, practitioners report that they can create more change with less effort for their clients.

They find fulfillment in helping others increase health and emotional well-being in a natural way. Rather than acting as a 'healer' who 'changes' things that are 'wrong', they instead facilitate the flow of a receiver's own life force to do the work of healing.

So many people are struggling with physical, emotional and mental challenges. The barrage of stress factors that introduce compression into our systems seems to be escalating. Learning efficient, powerful techniques to open up the flow of life force is a potent opportunity for you to help shift someone toward vitality, rather than disintegration and deterioration. Bodywork is a critical point for expanding health and consciousness on this planet, and you can be a part of this movement towards a higher frequency of human functioning.
