Discover a more balanced, energetically sustainable life through self-care shiatsu practices with Kumiko Kanayama.

Grand Master Kumiko Kanayama demonstrates a shiatsu practice as a way to come back to a more balanced, sustainable life in mind, body, and spirit.

Discover how shiatsu can help you maintain a more balanced, energetically sustainable life in mind, body, and spirit. Guided by Grand Master Kumiko Kanayama, founder of The Five Light Center of Shiatsu, we learn and practice self-care shiatsu together.

Kumiko's philosophy is deeply entrenched in her commitment to spiritual serenity and human-touch communication as a means to harmony. Through hands-on experience coupled with insightful lectures, we gain understanding of how to use shiatsu as a way to come back to a more balanced state.

We learn techniques of 5 Elements method stretching, Makko Ho, tapping and acupressure for self-care, Do-in, and intuitive shiatsu. Kumiko shares a guided practice of self-shiatsu techniques for addressing issues such as headaches, fatigue, poor sleep, menopause, digestive issues, hair loss, and more.

This workshop is open to all levels; no prior experience is necessary.
