3 Japanese Massage Video Techniques 
learning ancient 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 clothed.

Ashiatsu involves massage given by 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 calm, relaxed state of 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, created by master shiatsu therapist Byron Barth, known around the world as one 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).

About Me

A few things about me and the creation of Massage Education Guide....

After 20 years of practicing massage, I decided to create an online resource for those who want to learn about what to do after massage school....how to build a business from scratch, how to create a website that works for your business, how to create social media posts to engage clients, how to create Facebook Ads, effective SEO practices, and so much more.

I have spent thousands of dollars on advertising my business in newspapers, only to get a few clients, that may or may not return and become a regular customer, and it almost drained me financially.

Finding a way to build my business online for free became my only goal, and I spent many hours studying how folks grow a business with little-to-no money through social media.

Now, because of all I went through to grow my business, I teach  the benefits of building an online space, easy SEO and social media tips, and how sales funnels are now the way to make an additional online income, and make life so much better!

What's my passion? Massage therapy always and forever is my love, but helping people learn how to grow an online business is a very close second!

So, let's build your business, your dream, and grow together!
