The main idea of the workshop is that the WAY in which you contact a person has as much or more effect than the physical and technical part of the treatment. This course will show how the holistic energies described by Chinese Medicine are affected by the way in which you communicate, the quality of touch you use and the exercises and ‘homework’ that you give the client. The Six Forms of Touch also help the client to become aware of their own body in such a way that they can carry the explorations of the session into their everyday life.
You do not need to have any prior knowledge of Chinese Medicine or Shiatsu to do the course. This workshop can lead to further study of Movement Shiatsu at undergraduate level at the Ki Kai in London or postgraduate level at SEED in Frome.
If you want to read more about the Six Forms of Touch and Movement Shiatsu in general, Bill has written many articles that can be read online at www.seed.org/resources and an article specifically about the Six Forms of Touch
