In their daily work it becomes obvious to Shiatsu practitioners that Shiatsu has a clear potential for working with psychological issues. This workshop shows how to make use of this potential, and how to give our clients good support in a psychologically stressful situation.
When working with psychological issues Shiatsu follows the same principles as when working with clients who come because of physical symptoms. However, there are a number of phenomena that may happen more easily or may be of higher importance when working with psychological issues. This workshops explains these phenomena and shows how to deal with them.
