Applying Principles & Techniques of Practical Movement Shiatsu, Six Forms of Touch & Inner Qigong in Client Work , lead by Bill Commerford, Jonathan Clifford, Teresa Hadland and Kate Strong.
These weekends will explore creative and effective ways of working, that are easily accessible for clients, so that they can benefit from treatments that can assist self-confidence and a sense of autonomy. Workshops will include:
  • Developing your skills with clients to tailor treatments to their needs
  • Techniques to enhance your communication skills that will enable clients to participate more actively in treatments
  • How to enhance your treatments through different types of subtle but focused touch and intention rather than physical effort
  • Making Inner Qigong accessible to clients and how to model this in your treatments so that you can assist clients to experience their own sense of relationship with themselves through breath, stillness and integrated movement.
