About the course

Japanese Hand Massage is a massage of the arms and hands and is a unique blend of shiatsu and reflexology. It has its roots in ancient Oriental medicine. The philosophy underlying the massage is that vital energy (Qi in Chinese, Ki in Japanese) flows throughout the body in a series of channels called meridians. If the energy stops flowing then this can product symptoms of illness or discomfort.

This course will teach you the techniques to remove the energy blockages include gentle holding and pressing with palms, thumbs and fingers on the meridians. anyone who has ever experienced a good hand massage will sigh with pleasure at the recollection.

Our hands are one of the most overused parts of our body and work very hard, but in general they are sadly neglected. A good hand massage will help tremendously to distress your client, open energy channels and create a feeling of well being.

The course covers the techniques of applying pressure in the correct points on the hands and arms to restore the flow of energy, leaving the client refreshed and renewed. Japanese Hand Massage will prove to be a very popular addition to your massage treatments – it also works very well combined with a Manicure treatment.
