Dates for the post graduate workshops with Tetsuro Ted Saito and Zita Sieber

Content of Post-Graduate Education and Continuing Training with Tetsuro Saito and Zita Sieber

Shi So Shiatsu is going from strength to strength, and we have created three modules. These modules address the subject using a succinct, topic-based approach.

The basic module serves as a pre-requisite for the advanced modules, which can be freely chosen. Every module lasts 4 days.

Basic module
6th to 9th of December 2012;

7th to 10th of November 2013

”The Art of Diagnosis“

We learn a wonderful diagnostic technique, which forms a clear basis for holistic, effective treatment.

  • An insight into the connections between the various meridian systems
  • Familiarising yourself with the finger test method and "sound imaging" techniques
  • Sensing the meridian lines and diagnostic zones, and marking them on the body
  • Hara and back diagnosis
  • Kyo–Jitsu; the deeper meaning and various treatment options
  • Neck and shoulder treatment with “Masterpoints“
  • Working with Yu points
  • Neutralising of Ja-Ki (Rei–Sho treatment)

“Structural Work” Advanced module
21th to 24th of March 2013

Many of our clients come to us with specific problems and want to be taken seriously.  If the problems are of a structural nature, we can deal with them in a targeted, efficient manner via the special meridian approach.

  • Special meridian systems according to the TCM basic cards and Shin So Shiatsu (completed cards)
  • Diagnosis and various treatment methods
  • Yaki-Hari method, diagnosis and practice
  • Treatment with diodes
  • Treatment with the Manaka cable (ion pump cable)

“Organ level” Advanced module
October 2013

Far Eastern medicine with its treatment strategies always targets strengthening the organs.
When the organs are strong and healthy, a person feels well .

It’s no coincidence that the meridians are named after organs.  When we investigate the cause of a symptom, we mostly turn to the organ level.  By treating at organ level, we are working at the roots and can thus generate positive, lasting changes.

  • The organ-connecting meridians
  • Resolving Ki stagnation in the meridians
  • Resolving Ki stagnation via Bo and Yu points
  • Hand diagnosis and organ treatment
