This course is designed to help the aquatic therapist develop more "depth" to their touch; that is, to help develop a gentle but firm, focused touch, which is very effective in releasing tension. You will learn:
How to transpose Shiatsu and Zen Shiatsu techniques into your water practice.
How to make the most of the aquatic techniques you know, by becoming aware of points and meridians that you already may be touching in your water sessions.
How to move from your center of gravity, so to work without exertion or force.
How to maintain the structure of the body - spine and major joints - in effortless alignment while working.
A characteristic of this course is its focus in a sound understanding of healthy body mechanics. Understanding body structure is fundamental for injury prevention, and ultimately promotes a sense of physical grace for both therapist and client.
Mario Jahara has published two successful books on Shiatsu and Zen Shiatsu in Brazil - combined they have printed 12 editions until now. He has over 20 years of experience teaching these techniques.
This class offers a unique opportunity for aquatic therapists to benefit from Mario's intimate understanding of the subject in a course especially designed to support their professional needs.
