Description

Utilizing a special scarf for your treatment adds an important dimension of comfort and effectiveness for you and your client. Ohashi has been developing this useful technique with his therapists and clients for more than 45 years.

He demonstrates how a healing scarf can be utilized to relieve discomfort from structural problems on the neck, legs, arms, torso and back and to treat some meridians. You will learn how to properly fold and hold the scarf, and how to use your natural gravity to produce an effective treatment.   

Because you are using a scarf, this method is safe and easy to practice. For example, when your hands are cold, tight or nervous, using a scarf can make your client feel more comfortable, especially those clients who may not like to be touched directly. The receiver does not need to unrobe; the giver does not need to use oil or lubricant. Using a scarf is a clean and environmentally friendly method.

This course is designed for bodywork therapists,  yoga and exercise instructors, aestheticians and the layperson who is motivated to give healing touch.

This online course will be taught over 4 Sundays, 1½ – 2 hours each. Ohashi will demonstrate, then you will practice on your partner, and your partner can also practice on you. After each practice session, Ohashi will go over the technique again. He will aso view some participants while they are practicing and critique their practice.
