Self-Shiatsu and Do-in
The Japanese word shiatsu refers to the typical manual therapy of “finger pressure’’ and Japanese medicine calls this oriental osteopathy. The aim of shiatsu is to restore the correct circulation of the vital energy in the body as well as to reduce stress and stimulate the immune system. Do-in means “the introduction of external life forces into one’s own physical and spiritual being’’. The aim of Do-in is self-healing through self-awareness and the stimulation of the body’s circulation though acupressure, massage, breathing, meditation, and stretching.
Every Friday afternoon from 6 to 6.45 p.m., you can participate in the Self-Shiatsu and Do-in classes in the pool area free of charge. Comfortable clothing is recommended (i.e., T-shirts and shorts).
