"Why do people so often complain of pain in their back and neck? This is probably the symptom we encounter most commonly in shiatsu simply because there are so many different possible causes for it.
In shiatsu we lay importance on finding the cause of a problem. We are not happy merely to treat symptoms – we want to find the root cause and address that so that the problem will not only be alleviated but have no need to reappear. When it comes to pain in the neck and back, it is very often the case that the pain itself is not the root but the effect of a deeper-lying problem.
Perhaps the pain is located in the soft tissue, perhaps nearer the spine. Maybe it is situated in the lower back, perhaps higher, maybe both. Usaully by asking a few key questions we can find a clearly delineated area to look at and our standard diagnosis leads us into an initial phase of treatment.
What we then find is that if we simply do our treatment with an eye to following up on diagnostic clues, pain in these areas very often disappears ”by itself”. Using our standard ideas of meridian flow we can treat these problems almost regardless of what the cause turns out to be.
In this workshop I would like to explore a range of approaches and techniques which routinely assist me in the clinic when helping clients manage, reduce and get rid of their pain.
We will also look at a series of relaxation techniques which you can teach your clients so that they can train at home and keep their backs and necks pain-free."
