Japanese Massage Video 
learning ancient techniques of healing therapies!

A Japanese massage video teaches how to give a massage based on ancient bodywork therapies, handed down from centuries of family massage therapy traditions.

The three most common types of Japanese massage are shiatsu. ashiatsu, and zen shiatsu.

Shiatsu involves applying massage and acupressure techniques to the 12 meridians, with a deep, slow pressure to release restrictions throughout the body. It is often performed with the client fully clothes.

Ashiatsu involves using the feet of the therapist to apply pressure, and using bars that are mounted above the table for the therapist to balance.

Zen Shiatsu encourages a meditation with the therapy, helping to create a harmony between the mind and body. Practitioners are often taught how to be very "present" with the client, as just presence can bring healing.

Zen shiatsu has become one of the most popular forms of Japanese massage in the United States (and around the world), as it also instructs practitioners to be aware of their own ability to express mindfulness and compassion, thereby encouraging true healing.

The Art of Zen Shiatsu teaches this amazing type of Japanese massage. It was created by master shiatsu therapist Byron Barth,   known around the world as on of the best instructors for this therapy.

He provides a step-by-step training in Shiatsu with stretching, history, and locating pressure points. He explains traditional Chinese medical massage theory, palming, thumbing and hand, knee and elbow techniques.

This is a clip of the video:

The video is 2 1/2 hours long providing detailed instruction on full-body Zen Shiatsu massage. It has 2 full hours of "how-to" instruction, with very detailed bodywork demonstrations and techniques, with approximately 20-30 minutes of the history and benefits of this form of Japanese bodywork.

The creator, Byron Barth, is a Zen Shiatsu instructor and teaches at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, California. He has a Master's of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine and is nationally certified in Chinese Herbology, Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
