What is Shiatsu Shin Tai?

Shiatsu Shin Tai expands on traditional Shiatsu massage to create an evolutionary system of diagnosis and technique that stimulates the flow of life force in the body. There is a focus on the evaluation and treatment of the two primary meridians, Governing Vessel and Conception Vessel. Shin Tai bodywork uses a powerful system of diagnosis, theory and technique that facilitates deep transformation. A unique synthesis of structural, fascia, meridian, and chakra technique, this therapeutic bodywork clears stress from the body, and naturally stimulates a balance of energy.  

This evolving form of shiatsu has been developed by Saul Goodman. Saul is the founder and former director of the International School of Shiatsu, which has branches in over 15 countries, and the author of The Book of Shiatsu, Shiatsu Shin Tai and Light Body Activation. He has been traveling and teaching Shiatsu Shin Tai throughout Europe and the U.S. for almost 40 years.

Some Reviews....

I have been using Shin Tai/Life Force Recovery work for over 25 years and have found it to be very effective in my Shiatsu/CST practice. Using it first is like getting ‘the motor running’, as Saul says. It makes the rest of the treatment flow better and my treatments are much more efficient and allow the receiver to make positive changes in their lives.

Treatments have put me back on the path of living life and not disengaging. It was like plugging into the the circuitry – I WOKE UP. A shift of consciousness happened and I am awakening to what needs repair in my life and what needs to be adjusted, rather than allowing misalignments in my system to lead me. I am changing, my life is changing, and I am enjoying the changes.
