What is Zen-Touch™ Shiatsu ?
Zen-Touch™ is an innovative hybrid of shiatsu, acupressure, and Asian/Eastern bodywork created by Seymour Koblin.
Practitioners apply pressure while stretching limbs gradually. The attitude of compassion, respect and “energetic empathy” that accompanies the work, serves to stimulate “chi” flow, circulation and vitality.
Every touch combines health assessment and therapy as the practitioner sensitively responds to the unique condition of each client…… A dual journey in healing for both client and practitioner.
The versatility of light energy balancing, deep holding, stretching, elbow, foot and knee techniques or stimulating hand movements provide the practitioner with a vast repertoire of methods to affect profound changes with clients.
“Seymour’s modernized insight into the behavioral associations of the traditional energy meridians combined with his improvisational approach breathes new life into bodywork”
-Jeff St. Onge HHP, Instructor

Why do people enjoy practicing Zen-Touch™?
“This bodywork style is a pleasure to do. I feel tremendous health benefits from practicing it and my clients get profound results.”
K. R. Ridge-Practitioner
Zen-Touch™ demystifies the traditional eastern philosophical models of yin/yang, five elements, body reading, and lifestyle recommendations by incorporating them into an easy to understand modern-day perspective.
While the philosophies and techniques of Zen-Touch™ provide the student with an abundant source of motivating studies, Seymour emphasizes that compassion, reverence and the expression of one’s innate natural wisdom lie at the heart of healing.
“Zen-Touch™ has introduced me to my most valuable ally… Intuition”
