|Continuing Professional Education is the first program, started in Canada in 2007 for Shiatsu Professionals to improve their work environment. Originally, in Japan, there were many Continuing Education for national licensed Shiatsu professionals to keep and improve their skill. In Canada, there are Continuing Professional Educations for registered chiropractors and massage therapists. They need to attend these Continuing Professional Educations to keep their qualified licenses. Currently, only JSPA members are applicable to take part in Continuing Professional Education|
Continuing Professional Education The Latest Report
|July 20,2019, Continuing Professional Education Program, Jikidenkai was held at Canadian College of Shiatsu Therapy main campus.|
|Topic: Applying strong pressure while protecting the therapist's finger|
|Instructor: Mr. Shigeru Izawa
Participants: Mariko, Teruyo, Tom, Shota, Yuri, Sang, Chiemi, Tina, Takashi, Takumi, Yusuke, Hazel, Kyosuke and Nobu
We had Shigeru Izawa-sensei who is an Acupuncturist and Shiatsu therapist in Japan as a guest speaker. He shared his techniques as per the title of the Jikidenkai. Izawa-sensei taught us the importance of feeling muscles, paying attention to the direction and angle of the thumb toward muscles, using four fingers of each hand to support the muscle firmly and applying pressure using body weight from foot to arm. We were able to apply stronger pressure without placing excessive stress on the thumb. Thank you so much, Izawa-sensei.
