Listening beyond symptoms

Advanced Shiatsu Workshop

with Philippe Vandenabeele

Vienna 13-14 March 2021

In this workshop we will look at some of the common so called "modern diseases" like fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, burn-out and addiction with aim in building confidence beyond knowledge of the symptoms while focusing on the Shiatsu concepts of looking, listening, and feeling to let the body reveal its own way towards recovery.

We will focus on honing our practical and diagnostic skills with lots of hands on exercises that can be applied directly after the workshop in our clinical work.


Philippe will also share his work and experience in the treatment of whiplash which affects many thousands of people. It is a trauma that often has a deep impact on their lives from a whole series of symptoms ranging from neck pain, stiffness, myofascial injuries, headaches, dizziness, paresthesia, shoulder and back pain, cognitive, somatic, or psychological conditions such as memory loss, concentration impairment, nervousness, irritability, sleep disturbances, fatigue, and even depression. Symptoms can appear directly after the injury or may not surface for several days or weeks later often distressing the person for years. We will learn to see, touch and evaluate how whiplash can affect all the body’s systems, especially the soft tissue, nerves, muscles, and meridians.


Specifically, the goal of this workshop is to learn how we, from a Shiatsu perspective, can address all those conditions by appeasing the Shen and freeing the Ki in the afflicted meridians, soft tissue and other body structures thus allowing healing to happen on all levels.
