Details Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese form of massage, featuring acupressure and deep stretching. It’s a versatile form that does not require equipment and can be used to treat everything from stress to muscle soreness to headaches. It’s also a great way to cool down after climbing and can help prevent overuse injuries. This class will be hands on and we’ll practice each technique on each other. Wear loose or stretchable clothes and be comfortable lying and kneeling on the floor or a yoga mat or blanket. You do not need to come with a partner!
In this class you will learn some of the basic techniques of Shiatsu including: - An overview of the 5 element theory and the meridian system - Acupressure points throughout the body - How to safely and effectively massage and stretch out the back, arms, legs, and neck

When a person experiences a threat to their body that they can’t escape, they can store that memory differently, as trauma. Unprocessed trauma can lead to symptoms throughout the nervous system and body, such as hyper-vigilance, chronic pain, autoimmune disease, digestive problems, difficulty sleeping or concentrating.
In this course you will: • Learn about the physiology of trauma and PTSD through lecture and discussion • Develop bodily awareness through guided meditation and exercises • Practice techniques of self-massage and acupressure to help relieve anxiety and other symptoms • Create aromatherapy inhalers to help with meditation, sleep training, and focus
Participants take home: • Notes summarizing the lecture • Diagrams of massage techniques learned • Audio of the guided meditation we practice • Aromatherapy in a personalized inhaler
