380 - Table Shiatsu

Table Shiatsu

Certificate Program

PCTIA Accredited

Table Shiatsu Course:

Shiatsu originally was practiced by blind women; their sense of touch was so acute that clients would receive major results in just one session. Table Shiatsu is based on the same theory as the oriental art of Acupressure. Both use thumb or finger pressure on specific points on the meridian called a Tsubo to balance the body.

The Japanese word Shiatsu is composed of 'shi' meaning finger and 'atsu' meaning pressure.
