Residential Seminar


Shiatsu is a manual Japanese technique that applies pressure on certain points of the body along meridians by utilizing thumbs, the palms of the hands, the elbows and the knees. This pressure stimulates the circulation of energy and blood in the body to maintain or re-establish the psycho-energetic balance necessary to preserve our health.

Meditation also is an integral part of the course. Indeed, it takes us back to our origins, to the connection between earth and heaven.

The Do-In (the meridians stretching exercise), helps to become more flexible physically, and develop the perception of the Ki-energy which is an important part of the teaching of Shiatsu Yoseido school.

We are entirely depend on this energy to breathe, eat and drink.

It is also important to realize that what we eat has a great importance to the health of our bodies and of our minds.

That is why we organize this course in a place that respects the concept of balanced and organic food. (The farm of Bois-le-Comte)

Work will be done with a partner as it helps to learn the ways of both of the receiver and the shiatsu giver. The pressure should be in harmony, it is a fusion of energies.

Whilst helping the patient, the therapist will feel the pain and the feeling of hurt virtually as it  would be his own. In the East we call this empathy or compassion.

Each of us is a small part of cosmic energy, so it is extremely important to wake one’s subconscious in order to get the feeling of our own energy and of others.

At the end of this course you will become aware of your body, have better stress management and the ability to perceive in others the emptiness and energy stoppers.
