Stress management and treatment
Stress is not a disease, but it contributes to making all symptoms worse. This is why it’s crucial to know how it works, its tensions and the organs that are affected by stress. Shiatsu can release a person’s stress very quickly, using appropriate support and relaxation techniques.

Too often Shiatsu styles use one or two work rhythms. Ryoho Shiatsu studies and explores all rhythms and depths of pressure. In this workshop you will discover their effects, their advantages and their disadvantages, according to the type of body approach that you want to put in place.
Complete facial treatment
The face is the anatomical part that has the most muscles and a large number of tsubos. Knowing how to treat the face often gives access to a great relaxation on the part of the client, but also allows to relax tensions that go far beyond the face. A real kata of the face is taught here.
