Japanese Massage 2Day Certification Course

What is Japanese Massage?

Japanese Massage is called "Anma" relaxation massage in Japanese with thumb pressure and kneading techniques. This is similar to Chinese Anmo Tuina and Shiatsu, but the details are different; for example, practiced on a massage table or a massage chair, more hands and thumbs are used rather than elbows. To accommodate with Australian society, this Japanese Massage can be provided with quality Japan-produced Tsubaki (Camellia) oil, but normally is applied on a client with clothe-on.


We will teach rhythmic techniques following meridians, which are energy channels covering whole body.  

Who should learn this course?

This 2 day certification course of Japanese Massage is aimed to assist people to reduce stress from every day life and can be used as an introductory course for students who have not experienced to give massage to other people. On the other hand, this course content is based on Yoshie, the trainer’s 20 years of experience and that's why, any experienced massage practitioners will gain new knowledge and techniques.


Super small class up to 4 students at a class


Because a class only accepts 4 students, you can learn Japanese Massage until you get ready to provide it to other people with confidence and professionally in just 2 days.

In case you are not enough confident (even if competent), you can request follow-up training session/s after consultation with Yoshie, the instructor.

Also, Chudo will offer internship training for graduates who have suitable visa for work.
