About This Class

Ever wanted to learn massage but don't know how and have no equipment? Then, this is the course for you!

Wouldn't it be great to just be able to give your partner or friends or even your family a massage?

But...

You don't have a massage table, or if you do, you don't feel like dragging it out and finding all of the massage oils etc. etc.

Well, here is the massage course for you!

This is a course for someone to learn basic skills to be able to give a simple but very good massage to your friends, family or partner.

You are about to learn how to do Shiatsu massage and all you need in this course is some floor space, something soft to lie on such as some blankets or something similar, maybe a pillow or two and just wear some loose comfortable clothing. That-is-it!

Mark will guide you step by step and show you just how easy it is to give someone an amazing shiatsu massage experience. 

As you will see, to give a great massage you do not have to know lots of techniques. In fact, many massage therapists try to do too many massage strokes and end up doing them poorly. 

You are going to learn how incredibly simple it can be to do fabulous shiatsu massages on your partner, friends, family or even your clients in your spa.

Furthermore, Shiatsu massage is one of those forms of massage that is not only delightful to get but also equally delightful to learn and do on someone. 

This is a style of massage that has been performed by the Japanese for thousands of years and now is found in many of the World's best spas and now you are going to learn whop to perform this massage style.

It is performed without the use of oils and is done fully clothed on the floor. Traditionally a futon is used but as Mark shows you in this massage course, you can simply use some blankets or something similar to lie on.

Shiatsu practitioners in Japan may study for years on the many facets of shiatsu, however, it is still possible to learn how to do this wonderful style of massage without the depth of knowledge that the serious Japanese massage therapist aspires to. In short, you can still give an amazing massage without years of diligent study.

Mark's Shiatsu massage course includes awareness of body posture, breathing, and exercise. 

Like acupuncture, Shiatsu stimulates the body’s vital energy (known as Qi or Ki). 

Shiatsu really is a joy to learn.

Sit back and let Mark teach you the wonders of this incredible, centuries-old massage style so that you can then start giving your friends, family or partner massages too!
