A family gathering can be a great time to do some shiatsu with your family & friends. You can set up a table or futon in the corner of a room and offer 10 minute sessions. Do more traditional shiatsu - lots of rocking, stretching and invigorating pressure - rather than something like fascia or central channel work. Keep it light and stimulating.
Holiday Shiatsu Challenge
Here is the specific challenge: Get three of your family members, friends (or even pets!) into your 'shiatsu area' to get some bodywork during the coming holidays. We challenge you to find a way to share a little bit of shiatsu. Do at least three techniques on at least three people (not clients!) before January 1st.
It will help relieve some of their stress, and also give you a boost of fresh energy and perspective during the sometimes challenging (!?) situations that pop up when people that grew up together reconvene. Plus, it's an opportunity to create some positive healing in yourself and those around you.
If you are spending the holidays on your own, you can still participate! Spend at least 3 ten-minute sessions doing some Do-In, QiGong or other self-care practices.
