What is Shiatsu?
Shiatsu is a healing art, originating in Japan, which uses the power of touch and pressure to enable each of us to contact our own natural self -healing qualities. In a Shiatsu session the Practitioner uses pressure with thumbs, fingers, palms, and sometimes knees, elbows and feet, to induce deep relaxation and a feeling of well being. It is sometimes dynamic, sometimes seemingly quite static, involving pressure on the limbs and torso, as well as rotations, the kneading and releasing of tight muscles and supporting areas of weakness.
To receive, Shiatsu is deeply relaxing and yet invigorating, leaving a feeling of tranquillity and a sense of being in touch with every part of one’s body. Giving Shiatsu is a like performing a moving meditation and often leaves the giver feeling as balanced and energized as the receiver.
Shiatsu was developed from traditional oriental massage and, in common with acupuncture and other oriental therapies, it works on the body’s energetic system, using the network of meridians, or energy pathways, which connect to the internal organs, as well as relating to our emotional, psychological, spiritual harmony and well being.
The concept of the body as an ‘energetic’ organism comes from ancient Chinese thought, and through centuries of experience and study it has evolved into a system of medical theory and practice which is rich, poetic and life changing! This concept is now increasingly being acknowledged and explored in the West. Energy, known as Ki in Japanese (Qi in Chinese), flows through the body, rather like a system of rivers. Things may happen to upset the smooth flow of Ki causing blockages in some areas, weaknesses or stagnant pools in others. These in turn may lead to physical symptoms, psychological or emotional disturbance, or a feeling that ‘things are just not right’!
Shiatsu uses physical pressure and meridian stretches to unblock the ‘dams’-which show up as tight muscles and areas of stiffness-and revitalize the empty areas-which may feel cold, weak or just needing to be held. Oriental medical theory provides a framework by which the Shiatsu practitioner can assess the body’s energetic state and needs, and can explain why the body holds tension in certain areas or points and feels weak in others.
Exploring Qi and the Magic of Touch with Nick Neter and Louise Burt on Saturday, 12th October 3.30-6.00 pm
This new series of workshops explores the nature of Qi through the five elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Using Qigong, meditation, breathwork, art, Shiatsu touch and the senses we shall be working to understand, increase and develop our own awareness of the Qi.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), five elements or five phases theory outlines the relationship between the different elements in nature and the life force, or “Qi,” that flows through them. The five elements are Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.
The intention is to have a better understanding of each element as it occurs in nature during the year and how that works in our bodies, hearts and minds. Using an eclectic mix of Qigong, Shiatsu, Meditation, the Breath and Art work, we shall explore the qualities of each element and through simple exercises enable each participant to deeply connect and explore each element’s qualities. In so doing we shall share our Shiatsu Touch with each other to effect ease,flow,flexibility and an increased sense of well being.
In this Metal element workshop we shall be working with the Lung and Large Intestines channels, with emphasis of letting go, making space for the new, the Po (the corporeal soul) associated with immediate desires and the emotion of grief.
Places are limited to 8 people and the investment is £30. We ask for payment in advance to secure your place.

Qigong,Meditation and the Magic of the Breath with Nick Neter
These workshops are running on Saturdays, once every two months, next one is on 16th November 2019 at the Well Being Centre, Stone Cross
Time: 3.30am -5.30pm
“Touch your inner space, which is nothingness, as silent and empty as the sky; it is your inner sky. Once you settle down in your inner sky, you have come home, and a great maturity arises in your actions, in your behavior. Then whatever you do has grace in it. Then whatever you do is a poetry in itself. You live poetry; your walking becomes dancing, your silence becomes music.” ~Osho
As you become more sensitive to Qi in your Qigong practice,you will become more sensitive to Qi in your everyday life.This opens new avenues of perception and awareness.
To experience the beauty of Qigong and Meditation come and join us at 3.00pm for this two hour workshop in the Big Yurt at the Well Being Centre in the countryside near Hankham. No experience is necessary!
Qigong,meaning ‘cultivating energy,seeks to align the breath with movement and stillness to develop bodymind and breath awareness for exercise, healing, and meditation.
By turning our attention inwards to connect with the different parts of the body, we learn to establish a dialogue with our own body. This dialogue is a new way to approach and experience ourselves. By becoming more aware of ourselves and our own energy we explore our connection with the powerful universal energies.When we begin to integrate all parts of ourselves and the universe, we promote our body’s innate ability to heal and regain optimal health.
Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years and can be done by people of all faith traditions or none. With the practice of meditation the mind settles and a sense of ease, tranquillity and joy arise. This can lead to insight and wisdom.
Afterwards you are very welcome to stay for tea and cake and if you wish bring something to share.
