The College of Classical Chinese Medicine is seeking adjunct faculty to teach the following elective course in its Classical Chinese Medicine programs beginning spring quarter (April 8-June 28).

Course Description:

CM15E/CM25E/CM35E/CM45E/CM55E/CM65E – Shiatsu I-VI

(1.5 credits – Three hours per week of instruction for 12 weeks)

The shiatsu series presents a thorough grounding in the principles and style of Asian bodywork, the energetic anatomy upon which it is based, and the fundamentals of touching with quality. Students learn a variety of techniques and maneuvers in the context of a complete, full-body massage. This style of shiatsu is highly effective and enjoyable to give as well as receive. Though shiatsu is a Japanese word and massage tradition, it derives from Chinese sources and is based on the same theories and principles that have influenced the entire pan-Asian approach to medicine. These courses present shiatsu as a holistic massage focusing on wellness, and do not require the ability to diagnose in order to be effective. Shiatsu is a complete modality on its own, but also trains the student in the art of palpation and general sensitivity, which is useful in all aspects of a medical practice.



Eligible applicants for this position must have graduated with at least a master’s degree from an accredited institution in China or North America and/or be a licensed massage therapist specializing in Shiatsu. They must hold expertise in the content area of the course.



This position will be based at our campus in Portland, Oregon.
