Partner Shiatsu for Neck and Shoulder Release

July 18, 2019|6:30pm

Shiatsu is a Japanese form of energy/bodywork using the thumbs, fingers, palms, and elbows to apply pressure to the acupuncture meridians of the body. The pressure relieves stress by dissipating muscle tension and allowing the flow of energy through the body. The repetitive stresses of work are calmed and eliminated, increasing productivity and health. In this academic and experiential class, you will work in pairs while seated, practicing the principles of good alignment as you work. You will learn bodywork techniques for the neck, upper back, and shoulders. The receiver and the practitioner will both benefit from the focusing of energy and intention. Please bring a partner (for free) and also bring a yoga mat.

Instructor: Lisa Burnett, MA, MFA, has been teaching dance since 1977, practicing Shiatsu since 1988, and teaching Pilates since 1995.
