ERASE PAIN PATTERNS WITH SHIATSU
Free Shiatsu Bodywork Therapy Demonstration with Marjorie Pivar
The Shiatsu School of Vermont is promoting awareness of Zen Shiatsu, an ancient form of Asian Medicine from Japan, a meditative physical practice that brings healing to the practitioner as well as the client. Zen Shiatsu uses diagnostic and treatment goals that are achieved through a series of centered, improvised bodywork techniques.
Marjorie Pivar has practiced Zen style Shiatsu for over thirty years and is certified by the American Organization of Bodywork Therapies of Asia. She holds a masters degree in Holistic Health Education from Norwich University and has taught both privately and in the classroom. Marjorie is the author with Quang Van Nguyen of Fourth Uncle in the Mountain: The Remarkable Legacy of a Buddhist Itinerant Doctor in Vietnam, which is required reading at many schools of Asian medicine.
