Hot Waterstone Shiatsu and Massage

Windsong College of Healing Arts and Eastern Arts Institute of Holistic Therapy offer the Japanese traditional Hot Waterstone Shiatsu (Finger Pressure) and Massage (Full Massage with stones and Oils) as taught to Lori-Ann MacLeod by her Sensei Tamaki Tezuka. Stones can be laid out in patterns to heat and prepare Shiatsu lines for treatment or used as massage tools for full body Anma Massage. The therapy is deeply relaxing and invigorating as circulation is increased and toxins are shed. 

This combined distance online and two day workshop teaches the main elements of stone therapy, benefits, types of stones used, and how to safely perform a treatment. All supplies included. Students will have a performance demo practical test with a client. Bodywork or Massage experience is an asset in this course.
