1-hour online session (Zoom)  to learn about Shiatsu, will be co-provided by Momiji Health Care Society and Japanese Social Services (JSS).  *Held in Japanese

What is this session about?

“A pressure point is a concept in Chinese medicine, herbal medicine, and Meridian Studies that states that a specific area on the surface of the body can be stimulated by shiatsu, acupuncture, or moxibustion to regulate physical condition and relieve various symptoms. It is also commonly referred to as Tsubo(ツボ).“ From Wikipedia “Acupuncture”

According to The World Health Organization (WHO), there are 361 acupuncture points in our body. But where are they located on the body? What are the effects of pressing them? Many people may not be familiar with their effects and exact locations of them.

In this seminar, we will invite Taiju Hashimoto, a certified acupuncturist in Ontario, to learn about the basic knowledge about pressure points and how you can do shiatsu massage by yourself.
