Does anyone here practice the healing art of shiatsu, or accupressure along side their fighting arts?
The jujitsu style I'm learning first aid and the Japanese healing arts are required in their basic forms and encouraged in their more advanced forms.
I have a general interest in helath and well being anyway, I work as a paramedic and therefore know quite a lot about western medicine but very little about eastern. Due to this I enrolled on a shiatsu course. Not only have I gained an excellent insight to body mechanics but learning how various pressure points can be both the beneficial and debilitating has helped improve my jujitsu techniques no end.
I would love to hear about anyone elses experiences of the various eastern medicine techinques.
