Five Lights Center Launches Online Shiatsu Classes
The Five Lights Center of Shiatsu Studies, in New York City, is offering six Zoom courses through its online educational program, to meet the increased demand for distance learning. All six are approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork for massage therapy CEUs and can be studied virtually from anywhere in the world. The first livestreamed course, Level 1: Introduction to the Primary Meridian, will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 26 and 28 and June 9, 11, 16 and 18.
The other five courses are Introduction to Shiatsu Workshop; Massage Table Shiatsu; The Five Element Theory and Introduction to Water, Wood and Earth Elements; Introduction to Metal and Fire Elements; and Introduction to Shiatsu Treatment Plan.
“Shiatsu is a good fit for a massage therapy practice because shiatsu harnesses the power of touch, elevating it to a new level of sensitivity, enhancing the client’s experience,” says Kumiko Kanayama, founder and director of the Five Lights Center. “Also, shiatsu teaches body mechanics that focus on the therapist’s core, or hara, allowing practitioners the ability to work longer, not harder. All shiatsu techniques are easily brought to the massage table and can be adapted to almost any professional massage practice.”
The Five Lights Center is the
oldest shiatsu practice in the United States. It is dedicated solely to
training and supporting the shiatsu community through its educational programs,
social media connectivity and weekly Global Shiatsu Virtual Gatherings.
