Shiatsu workshop @ Meridians


A four-day workshop in the basic theory and practice of Zen Shiatsu. It includes 12 hours of teaching and 12 hours of guided practice. A maximum of six (6) participants are accepted per workshop. An extra 10 hours of home assignment is required to complete within six months after the workshop for the issue of certificate.


To introduce participants to the basic concepts and techniques of Zen Shiatsu and to teach a one-hour full body Shiatsu routine. Through training, we also hope to recruit participants for part-time and full-time practice in our centre.

Entrance Requirements

This is a basic introductory course. No massage or energy work background is required. Learning shiatsu takes a good deal of practice however, and participants should be highly motivated to meet with each other and study outside training hours.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the workshop you will be able to:

  • List and describe the basic concepts of Shiatsu, such as Kyo, Jitsu, Hara, Tsubo, etc.;
  • Contrast Yin and Yang and apply the theory to your Shiatsu practice;
  • Apply pressure correctly and move Ki in the energy pathways;
  • Perform a one-hour Zen Shiatsu session;
  • Practise related exercises, including breathing and meridian stretching.
