The AOBTA® Lunch & Learn Webinar Series
What's So Special About Hara Diagnosis in Zen Shiatsu?
Presented by Winter Jade Forest, AOBTA®-CI
Join Winter Jade Forest, AOBTA®-CI for an exploration of Hara diagnosis in Zen Shiatsu.
There is more than one way to diagnose the hara. So, what are the features that distinguish the Zen Shiatsu method from the classical?
For one thing, there can be 14-18 locations on the abdomen, depending on your method of palpation. Other characteristics include the difference between Kyo/Jitsu and Excess/Deficient, as well as the emphasis on strengthening antipathogenic ki rather than addressing symptoms directly.
But in my opinion, the best thing about this system is the ever-increasing sensitivity of hands and heart that is built into it.

"This class was great! I would definitely get Grandmother Winter Jade back to do another Lunch&Learn! I would also enjoy her teaching at the Conference!"
"Thank you for this informative webinar. The one thing that really stuck out to me was the idea of when we are looking for kyo we can tend to think of deficiency, weakness etc. Grandmother presented it in a way to say that this is what's healthy and needs more attention, love that! I want to carry that with me next time I do a hara diagnosis."
"I really enjoyed this. It made me commit to the Convention!"
"I did learn some about the Masunaga hara diagnosis from the visuals. This "taster" really made me want more info and hands-on experience though. I'm hoping to make the convention next year!"
