Ohashiatsu for Home-use
    
 

Inner strength, outer grace...
"Don't press - just be there" is the first principle of Ohashiatsu. "Being rather than doing". This way you can fully relax and enjoy moving about the partner's body. Instead of working hard, you naturally fall into meditation, connecting deeply with yourself and your partner.

Master Ohashi has created this technique so that it benefits both, the giver and receiver. Like in Tai Chi you are balancing and rejuvenating your energy through your movement. You improve your own health while helping someone else to feel better. When you are relaxed it actually makes the session more effective and more comfortable for the receiver.

This 5-weeks online course will teach you how to give a full body session for home-use, It's a well-balanced mix of theory, practical application, meditation and physical exercises.

You will learn

  • the fundamental principles of Ohashiatsu as they apply to bodywork and, more importantly, to every aspect of life
  • how to feel the life force or Ki energy flow in the body
  • the concept of Yin and Yang
  • the meaning and use of the "Hara"
  • locations and main functions of all 12 meridians
  • some of the major tsubos (acupoints)
  • Ohashiatsu techniques in supine and prone positions.
