Course Details
Shiatsu comes from the centuries-old tradition of Oriental bodywork. Translated as “finger-pressure”, Shiatsu uses finger, hand and elbow pressure, stretches and other techniques to adjust the body’s physical structure and activate client’s innate self-healing mechanisms to help ward off illness and maintain good health.

Shiatsu will allow you to work effectively, putting less strain on your body. In fact, you can experience almost as much benefit as your client.

In this class you will learn the Basic Shiatsu Routine and a select group of Meridians. The key concepts of Shiatsu and Oriental Medicine will be explored. You will also be able to integrate the Meridian and general Shiatsu work into your massage sessions.

This potentially life-altering class is a synthesis and distillation of the Shapeshifting I and Shapeshifting II classes covering the entire human structure, head to toes.  While it is not required that the expanded versions of this information be taken prior, you may choose to take those four 4-hour classes in preparation for this Intensive.  Or, perhaps you may choose to take those classes in that expanded form as a review at another time.  

During 6 hours on Sat. we will cover an intense version of SS-I and SS-II – Lower for a thorough massage and stretching experience that’s sure to shift the shape of your foundational lower body and back.

Then, on Sun., we cover SS-I and SS-II – Upper to finish off a full body intense self-care treatment.

This combination of assessing, loosening spasms and stretching shifts the current shape we’re in to higher levels of resolution and elimination of our AWI’s!*©

All 12 hands-on hours completed in one self-indulgent weekend, this 2-day Intensive is the approach best able to provide maximum Shapeshifting benefit!  And you have documents to take along for your ongoing self-care practice.  

Completion of the 12 hour Intensive includes cell phone contact for guidance-questions with instructor.

Please bring a mat to lie down on; towels and pillows for comfort; lotion.  Wear either swimsuit or loose clothing which allows access to your arms and shoulders, legs and hips and front and back of your torso.  You may also bring massage tools for your use.  Manual for class will be provided.

Debra Rockman
Debra’s first hands-on ‘massage work’ was in September of 1970.  It continued to be a hobby into college where she participated in massage workshops and seminars offered by the Wholistic Health Club, which she helped found, at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee in 1980.  

After attending and graduating from Suncoast School of Massage in Tampa, FL in August of 1990, Debra has maintained a private practice in addition to teaching massage techniques at Suncoast, Florida Career College and Cortiva Institute, Pinellas Park.  Her advanced coursework has included Neuromuscular Therapy with Judith Walker-Delany and CORE Myofascial Therapy with George Kousaleos, as well as learning the Anatomy Trains curriculum created by Tom Myers and Aaron Mattes’ Active Isolated Stretching Techniques.

Debra says:  “Massage anatomy, fascia and A&P have been my favorite topics throughout almost 25 years of licensed massage work.  These are the ‘jumping-off point’ for the self-care classes I have developed for continuing education for licensed therapists.  I hope to offer my cumulative experience to bring tools for therapists to use both for their own well being, as well as that of their clients.”
