During the winter the Earth's energy retires in order to rest, conserve and strengthen itself. Allowing the human body to follow the same natural rhythm, promotes internal harmony, physical health and wellness.

Shiatsu Academy organizes during the weekend 24-25 November 2012 a hands-on laboratory for getting acquainted with the qualities of this season, and learning ways for putting them to work in favor of our health and wellness.

You will be given practical knowledge about foods, herbs and grains that suit the body's needs during winter, and you will be taught simple, effective shiatsu and Do-Yinn techniques that you can apply on yourself or others, to improve health.

Shiatsu Academy sees «Thessaloniki differently»

The Academy once again supports and actively participates in the «Thessaloniki differently» urban experiment.
