Advanced 1

This course refines and expands the Ohashiatsu curriculum while also focusing on the essentials of Ohashiatsu: the difference between homologous and homolateral movement; how to perfect cross-patterning movement; use of mother/messenger hands.

You will learn to make micro and macro transitions during a session: from supine to prone, from side to prone, etc. smoothly and without effort.

Other techniques and theory to be covered are

  • review of Masunaga meridians;
  • sit-up position;
  • neck techniques with and without a scarf;
  • Bo- und Yu-points;
  • the four shins of oriental diagnosis;
  • analysis of body structure using kyo and jitsu theory.

One class is reserved for a Practical Application seminar, in which students work on guest clients. Case studies have to be prepared and will be discussed in class. 

Students will close with a written test during the course and a tutorial with the instructor outside of class.

This course might be offered in-person or online.
