Zen Shiatsu Certification Comes to Watertown Center for Healing Arts




At last, a certified Shiatsu practitioner program will be available once more in Boston at the Watertown Center for Healing Arts. Even more exciting is that students will have the rare opportunity to study with WinterJade Lindy Ferrigno, one of the original students of the originator of Zen Shiatsu, the late Master Shizuto Masunaga as well as his top student, the late Kishi Sensei. Ferrigno Sensei will pass on these advanced teachings to Boston-area students. The Watertown program is a satellite school of the Shiatsu School of Vermont.

Applications will be accepted starting January 1, 2018. This year-long, 500-hour program will begin September, 2018. “This is an amazing opportunity to become certified in an up-and-coming profession,” says Sarah West, assistant director of Shiatsu School of Vermont. Shiatsu is a form of traditional medicine from Japan that supports the body to relieve pain and control internal and external disease patterns.

Location: Watertown Center for Healing Arts, 22 Mt. Auburn St., Watertown. For more information, call 802-246-0877 or visit ZenShiatsuBoston.org.
