Ohashi Returns to Melbourne

Dear Friend,

I am very happy and honored to be invited back by the Australian Shiatsu College to teach at their wonderful school again. This year I am teaching Muscle Meridian Sedation, Psychology of the Meridians and Oriental Diagnosis. These are courses that I’ve taught many times in the U.S. and Europe, and now I want to share my experience and knowledge with the talented students in Melbourne. Also, this year I will have more time for tutorials and sessions. These are extremely popular, so if you are interested please get in touch with Kazu very soon. I look forward to seeing all our past students and new students!

See you soon,

Ohashi’s Oriental Diagnosis

Ohashi's Oriental Diagnosis

Long before X-rays and MRIs, traditional healers used noninvasive methods to assess personal health, lifestyle, and character. For the Oriental diagnostician, the body is the physical manifestation of the soul and reveals both symptom and cause. Ohashi compares Eastern and Western approaches to health based on his many years of observing clients and students, and explains the precepts in a language all can understand. You will learn about many diagnoses of the body including face and body diagnosis, back diagnoses with bilateral distortion, movement diagnosis.

Psychology of the Meridians

Psychology of the Meridians

Ohashi says that our life is the manifestation of physical and psychological energy. Even today most Western psychologists do not consider the physical body when analyzing psychological states. Yet there are dozens of clues the physical body holds that can reveal one’s state of mind and even past traumas.

In this workshop you will learn to recognize human psychology as it manifests itself in the meridians. Ohashi will teach:

  • How Ki manifests itself in daily life
  • Exercises for specific psychological problems
  • How to treat particular psychological problems with OHASHI Method / Ohashiatsu techniques

Workshop participants will have the opportunity to perform the exercises and practice the techniques by working in pairs.

Muscle Meridian Sedation

Muscle Meridian Sedation

In this workshop Ohashi will show whether to increase or to decrease the energy/strength of a group of muscles to improve the mobility and health of the client. When you are practicing shiatsu and other bodywork modalities, you have to:

  • Analyze, evaluate and diagnose your client’s problem
  • Decide what treatment technique your client needs
  • Perform the technique to get results

In this class you will learn how to make a correct diagnosis and to choose the best technique for maximum results. These techniques will enrich your professional treatment by making you more effective and efficient.

Ohashi has developed his muscle-meridian sedation and activation techniques over forty years of practice and study of Eastern diagnosis, kinesiology, meridian therapy, Japanese martial arts, movement and dance.

Tutorials & Sessions with Ohashi

Tutorials: During Ohashi’s visit he will conduct special 4-person tutorials for dedicated students. This is a unique opportunity to “work with” and “work on” Ohashi. You will receive immediate feedback, correction and instruction from Ohashi on your technique. Students will learn together, with one hour allotted per student. Space is limited to 4 students. Tutorials are a perfect way to save your time and to learn from direct touch. You will have the opportunity to work on the technique you wish to improve.

Sessions: While in Melbourne Ohashi will offer sessions. Each session is a half-hour and is held in a tranquil, peaceful room. We ask that clients arrive at the time of the first treatment so that all enter the room at that time. As Ohashi works on each receiver, the others are welcome to rest or observe while waiting. Typically, four sessions are held at a time. Only those receiving sessions are invited to observe. Observing is a very good way to learn. You can also learn from Ohashi’s individual touch.

Tutorials and Sessions are open to everyone, even if you are not taking the courses.
