The Digestive System and Conception Vessel

This video is an introduction to the online course 'Hara: Treatment of the Digestive & Circulatory Systems.'

Bodyworkers who can work skillfully with the digestive system offer tremendous benefits to their clients. Hara treatment is one of the most powerful ways to strengthen this area. To better understand the digestive system and its relationship to the Conception Vessel meridian, please click on the link below to watch a short video.

Working with the digestive system in a specific, therapeutic way improves digestion, strength and clarity and gives the receiver ability to develop a better blood quality. In the online video course called 'Hara: Treatment of the Digestive & Circulatory Systems' we give instruction in treating not only the organs, but the energetic factors which contribute to poor function of this area of the body. The series of techniques presented can be used as a complete protocol, or separately whenever they will be effective.

Many people today have digestive challenges, including obesity, constipation, bloating, gas, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers, colitis, leaky gut, Crohn's or Celiac Disease, diabetes, gall stones, or cancer somewhere in the digestive tract. This course provides powerful, unique tools to assist them. Some of the techniques are original to this work, while others have a long tradition of use. Being able to offer a treatment like this provides tremendous benefits to clients who often do not have access to anything other than diet and/or medications to assist them in recovering digestive strength.

Sponsor a Shin Tai Class

We receive ongoing inquiries about where Saul Goodman is teaching Shiatsu Shin Tai classes.  During the last two years he stopped traveling to teach for the first time in over 30 years, and only taught courses where he lives in Doylestown, PA.  There are several Shin Tai teachers now in Europe who are running a variety of classes in several different countries (England, Scotland, Croatia, Switzerland, Slovenia, and Austria to name a few), so many students in Europe are able to learn the basic Shin Tai materials.

For now, Saul has not scheduled anything overseas, but he is beginning to schedule some classes in different locations here in the United States.  If you live in the U.S. and are interested in learning Shin Tai, yet have no courses near you (or if you love Shin Tai and want to share it with people in your area) you may want to consider sponsoring a shiatsu shin tai class.

Sponsoring a class is a great way to deepen your own knowledge, create a circle of people near you with whom you can exchange treatments and resources, and supplement your income.

Shin Tai Treatment - Advanced Central Channel

Each shiatsu shin tai treatment below was given during an Advanced Central Channel course given by Saul Goodman in November 2014. Central Channel is part of Shiatsu Shin Tai. It works to free the body of menningal stress patterns. As space and motion are recovered, the body begins to literally enter more fully into the present time continuum. Central Channel work has been referred to as the 'jazz' of bodywork due to its complexity, intelligence, and creativity.

The material in each shin tai treatment is geared for practitioners who have already done extensive study in Shiatsu Shin Tai, although the concepts could be helpful for any bodyworker to see.

Please leave comments and/or questions below.  We welcome your feedback!

Advanced Central Channel - a short Shin Tai treatment using anterior contacts

This short demo treatment was given during an Advanced Central Channel course given by Saul Goodman in November 2014. It includes work with some anterior contacts.

As space and motion are recovered, the body begins to literally enter more fully into the present time continuum.

The material in this treatment is geared for practitioners who have already done extensive study in Shiatsu Shin Tai, although the concepts could be helpful for any bodyworker to see.

These anterior contacts usually present themselves once life force is really activated in the body,and there are phase II & III motions. Common locations include the sternum and manubrium, the ribs, the xyphoid process, the top of the pubic bone, and the collar bone.

Teaching Central Channel in Scotland: Feedback

By Liz Arundel Dear Friends,

I wanted to give you some feedback on the first Central Channel course in Scotland and what I learnt from the experience.

We had 2, 3 day weekends 6 weeks apart. This big space between the weekends was due to the room only being available at those times. The students said that it was very helpful having time in between to digest the information and practice and rewrite their notes.

2 students sent me their typed notes by email after the first weekend for me to check for mistakes (there were a few but not many) and then we shared them with the group. They had a good grasp of the info and I think it helped them to type them out.

We had 9 students and 5 teachers on the first weekend! We, the teachers, were all very excited about the course and the students picked up on the significance of it being the first CC in Scotland. I felt very honoured to be teaching this material and the other 4 teachers (Char Scrivener, Kindy Kaur, Rachel Boase, Petra Elliott) all made very valuable contributions to discussions and helped clarify the information. At times it was like a mini teacher training for us all! The benefit of having so many of us in the room was that when they worked in 3s, each group had a teacher with them which they found very helpful for guidance and questions. It also gave the teachers an opportunity to teach their group, just like in Hungary! Seeing their confusion really taught me humility, patience and compassion and reminded me of how I felt when I first started learning this work and right up to the TT!

On the second weekend it was just Kindy, Petra and myself. The group was more confident and less confused this time and more settled and clear themselves from all the work they had received so there as a better flow to the 3 days. Clearly the CC was working! So having 3 of us guiding the class was perfect. Kindy led some of the proprio exercises which the class  really enjoyed. After Stage 5 the class did a short treatment in 2s on their own and that helped their confidence.

Alot of their questions were useful in clarifying information. When I was demonstrating Stage 2 and 3 they didn't come up in the person I was treating but stage 4 appeared so they saw how non linear the process was. So I showed them on the spine where to contact and then reviewed it after the practice session when the stages did come up. With Stage 5 it was right there at the beginning of the demo! There was more phase 3 motion in the second weekend while I demoed and when the class practiced which gave them heart that it was working. Lots more proprio suggestion from givers and priopro sensations from receivers in second weekend too.

After all the writing on the board the first weekend, it was suggested to me to organise a powerpoint presentation of the stages for the second weekend so didn't have to spend so long writing them up. This was a major logistical challenge for me as I'm not great with computers. So I got some help from a friend and I did it, only to find that I didn't have  any powerpoint technology at the centre. So I printed out my powerpoint notes for the class for stages 4-6 (just the basic info) which they said was very helpful and it gave us more time to go into the finer details of stage 5 in particular.

I had an hilarious moment when I was showing on the spine the anatomical difference between C1 and C2 and had turned the spine anteriorly and forgot to turn it over to show the spinous processes on the back but gamely tried to show them the processes on the front. Kindy's face was a picture of horror. When I realised  a few seconds later we had a good laugh! So always good to admit mistakes immediately!!

So I'm trying to organise a review weekend in September so follow up their progress. They all have buddys to practice with and go over the material and notes. I feel it was a great success and can't wait to teach the next one.

I hope all your plans and teaching are going well.  Love and hugs to you all,

Liz (Arundel)
