Shiatsu Basic Training

The basic course of the basic training consists of eight parts of 12 hours each.
In the first stage of the three-year Shiatsu training, the training group (AG) and 4 supplementary courses must also be taken. Instead of the AG, a 5th supplementary course can also be taken as an alternative.
With an additional 2-3 one-to-one lessons, a certificate for the basic training can be obtained.
Attention! For the basic training, it is strongly recommended to attend an introductory course beforehand.

The completion of the Shiatsu basic training enables qualified wellness treatments. The training is traditionally carried out on the floor, which is pleasantly soft in our classrooms. The core of the basic training is the basic course. Here, a solid Shiatsu basic form (Kata) and six meridian-katas are learned for the general stimulation of the self-healing powers. The most important techniques for the treatment of body segments are also included. For each of the eight parts of the basic training, a part of the training group (AG) is offered. Depending on the needs of the students, the contents of the basic courses are repeated, deepened and supplemented. Exclusively in the AG, stretching and self-treatment of all 12 meridians are learned. If the basic training is to be concluded with a certificate or used as an entry into the 3-year Shiatsu training, the flat rate E with 4 additional supplementary courses is the appropriate scope.For detailed contents from part to part as well as the AG (training group) see below.
