What is ShinTai?

ShinTai is an innovative and deeply transformative healing bodywork developed by Saul Goodman – an evolution of traditional shiatsu and a fusion of ancient and contemporary bodywork practices such as structural alignment, fascia release, energy healing, chakra  and meditation practices.

The aim of ShinTai is to clear deeply held energetic patterns and to increase the flow of life force in the body.  This approach taps into the body’s own intelligence and touches the core healing potential of the person.  The effects are felt in the physical body, the emotional and mental condition,  spiritually and in the person’s life.

Governing Vessel and Conception Vessel

The governing vessel and conception vessel energy channels begin to flow at the time of conception and form the deepest part of the energy system. Together they form the Central Channel, the focus of ancient energy healing practices.

The flow of life force through this system can become compressed over time, resulting in symptoms of dis-ease. The aim of ShinTai is to restore this flow through a variety of approaches working with the spine, fascia & meninges, soft tissue structural alignment, Hara treatment, cranial-meningeal releases, chakras and meditation.

Energetic Stress Patterns

When we encounter stress/trauma we often experience tension in the muscles, organs and glands in the body. If unresolved the energetic pattern or memory of this stress becomes held in the body tissues and a person’s energy or life force literally becomes locked into the stress pattern, as though the original stress was still happening, causing physical, emotional and psychological problems.
