Shiatsu Therapy, originating in Japan and having roots in China, has had a considerable surge of popularity in the West. Shiatsu, Japanese for "finger pressure" involves applying pressure to areas (meridians and points, tsubos), located all over the body. Shiatsu offers a safe, natural, drug-free way of facilitating change and is a viable therapeutic modality and branch of complimentary medicine. The ability to reach out and touch someone, to make a difference and to take health in your own hands is at risk of becoming a lost art in our fast paced modern world.
Karate meaning "empty hand" or "Chinese hand" is a centuries old style of self defence and martial arts originating in Okinawa and then migrating to mainland Japan. Karate trains the mind and body and cultivates discipline, focus, awareness and confidence. Karate practice consists of Kihon (Basics), Kumite (Sparring) and Kata (Forms) as well as the study of Bunkai (Application) of the Katas. At Living Earth we offer attentive detailed instruction in a positive training environment. Living Earth Karate Club is a small dojo offering high quality, traditional Karate instruction.
