Perfecting Neck-Work

Neck-work can be the most powerful part of an Ohashiatsu/Shiatsu session. It can quickly release tension and discomfort, carrying away your client to a state of ultimate bliss and relaxation. Why is that? What's the secret?

Anatomically the neck is connected with the lower back and the shoulders, both very critical areas in the body where we commonly find lots of tension and pain.

On the brain level, it's like pressing a reset button, helping your client to reach an alternate state of consciousness, very similar to meditation, where profound healing can take place - emotionally, spiritually, psychologically and physically.

As powerful as it is to work on the neck, you have to also use caution when touching and moving this delicate part of the body.

In this 5-weeks online course you will learn a variety of neck techniques, that Margarete demonstrates step by step on video, easy for you to follow and practice on your partner. Her focus is on moving with ease and grace, in an continuous flow. A special highlight will be Ohashi's famous techniques with the scarf.

How it works:

  • Once a week you will receive a set of training videos with detailed demonstrations.
  • Find a partner to practice with, any time during the week.
  • Every Thursday there will be a Live Zoom class for theory and Q&A.
  • You will be invited to a Facebook group for continuous exchange with your teacher and classmates.
  • You can ask questions and post short videos to get direct feedback on your practice.
  • Attending all Zoom sessions is strongly recommended. However, you will receive the recordings of the live classes afterwards, so you can also follow if you miss a session.
This course is open to all Ohashiatsu course levels, as well as students and graduates of any Shiatsu school.
