This month will include Shiatsu, Reiki and an Angel Walk, along with other blissful touch experiences. This experience provides an opportunity to give, to receive, to learn and to be filled up with yummy, platonic, nurturing, blissful healing touch! Shiatsu Shiatsu is a therapeutic form of bodywork that was created in Japan. The word Shiatsu in Japanese means "finger pressure". While its historical roots can be traced to China and traditional Chinese medicine, it evolved into a distinct art in Japan over hundreds of years. Shiatsu works with the body’s vital energy, known as chi. In traditional Chinese medicine, it is believed that when energy becomes blocked or stagnant, it causes illness. In shiatsu the practitioner uses pressure to stimulate the energy channels (known as meridians), and aims to unblock any stuck energy. In turn, this is thought to help the body balance and heal itself. Kumiko will also be offering a Shiatsu training in March more details below. Reiki Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing technique. The practitioner lightly places their hands on the receiver and sends them ki (energy) which often helps the receiver to feel calm, relaxed and rejuvenated. We will be practicing a non-traditional form of reiki. Angel Walk/Healing Touch We will share a beautiful, collaborative healing touch experience called an Angel Walk. The Angel Walk is a blissful, nurturing, heart opening and body melting experience that uses safe, platonic, nurturing, healing touch to support us in feeling nurtured, care for and relaxed. No experience is necessary in any of the touch modalities This is strictly a safe, platonic nurturing touch experience All experiences are fully clothed. No partner is necessary. We will switch partners through out the evening. If you came with a partner you would like to work with the whole evening that is welcomed. Advance Registration is recommended!
