Push-pull techniques are extremely powerful – they allow you to go deep, with great effect, but minimal effort. You might find these advanced techniques very helpful with clients that are big, tight or stiff, but you can also use them in a very gentle way.
The key is to let the movement originate in the hara and spiral out to your limbs so they move in opposite directions. It is found in many ancient disciplines like Tai Chi or Chi Gong. It also follows the principle of cross-pattering.
In this 2-day workshop, Margarete will demonstrate a variety of Ohashiatsu push-pull techniques on different parts of the body: back, legs, arms and neck. She’ll explain in datail how to move and you’ll apply and practice it on each other, using thumbs, palms and knees.
This workshop is open to Ohashiatsu/Shiatsu practitioners and students, and anyone interested in refining and perfecting their body mechanics. Basic knowledge of Shiatsu/Ohashiatsu is helpful.
This course might be offered in-person or online.
