> Can you present yourself to our CoRiders?

Hello to all the CoRiders !

My name is Didier Freche, I’m 53 years old, I’m a Zen Shiatsu practitioner since decade.

Manager of 25 employees in a telecommunication company, I had the feeling that it was time for me to change direction to take advantage of my knowledge and of my practice in the service of people in search of physical and mental well-being.

> How did you get the urge to become a practitioner of Zen Shiatsu?

Fascinated by the Martial arts, I had the opportunity to go into the international shorinji-tyu school  managed by Lee professor and to practice the karate, Kobudo and the Tai-chi chen.

It was during these trainings, long and intense, that the teacher makes us discover the Zen Shiatsu to relax us the body and the spirit for a better physical recovery.

This was a revelation to me, it is a technique that I felt immediately and that I wanted to learn absolutely.

It is much later that I found the teacher who practiced this school that is the Zen Shiatsu.



> What’s the Zen Shiatsu ?

Zen Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese art that harmonizes the energy and revitalizes the body. This technique, simple and powerful, applied by finger pressure along the meridians.

Its aim is to rebalance the flow of energy in the body, stimulate the functioning of internal organs, increase defense capabilities and self-healing.
