Next workshop: Getting back into touch

Date: Saturday 12th September 2020

Time: 10.30 - 17.30

Venue: Bodywise Natural Health Centre, Manchester

Price: £75 (contact me if you have financial issues at the moment, and we can discuss a reduced-rate place)


A day of shiatsu for practitioners and advanced students, focusing on the basics of our shiatsu practice - touch.

After limitations on touching during the pandemic, this workshop will help us to get back into different aspects of touch. We will have the opportunity to connect touch with aspects of our practice that we have been developing during lockdown (eg distant healing approaches, self shiatsu tutorials), perhaps to get into shiatsu again after a break, or getting used to PPE.

We will explore different ways of touching the body, 

  • connecting with Yin and Yang kinds of touch, 

  • touch that moves energy along and touch that draws energy to a particular place,

  • touch and movement, touch and qi projection, touch and sensitivity
