Professional Training in O-KI Chair-Shiatsu (Sitting Massage) : Level 2 


After having followed Level 1, you can reach a truly professional standard with Level 2.  

The first part of this level is dedicated in reaching perfection in every detail and every technique. After that, we then train you in giving the complete treatment, which in the beginning takes even more then 30 minutes,  in maximum 15 minutes. This gives you a very deep confidence, which gives you a solid base to give professional treatments. 

You also learn Ki-exercices and you learn how to be able to give several treatments at a glow, without exhausting your own energy but to be connected to the flow itself, in other words without mind-stress.


We continue then with the exam (not compulsory). To receive the certifcate, you need to pass the theoretical and practical exam, and establish minimum 15 treatments which you document with a written report. This way you learn to work on different people and are able to ask us for any advice.
