Revitalize Energy Levels at All Things Spleen Class

Participants can learn about “all things spleen” in a fun jin shin jyutsu self-help class led by instructor and practitioner Michelle Giambra, licensed massage therapist and owner of Suncoast Jin Shin Jyutsu, in Sarasota, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., January 27, in Naples. The unique healing modality, widely practiced in ancient times, that enhances the body-mind-spirit connection by providing tools to maintain and restore the harmonious flow of life energy, was revived by Japanese Master Jiro Murai in 1912, after he cleared himself of a terminal illness.  

Attendees will connect with the spleen, an important organ for physical, mental and emotional vitality, the immune system, breast health and more on many levels, with an informal lecture, in-class worksheets, handouts and practical experience that increases awareness of the body’s innate healing wisdom. They will discover how to support their spleen function with hands-on energy harmonizing holds and sequences, and learn insights and tools that can be used for the rest of their lives.

Cost: $108 by Jan. 15; $120 after. Six CEUs available to massage therapists. Location: 5600 Tamiami Tr. N., Pine Ridge Plaza, Ste. 15. For more information and to register (required by Jan. 24), call Gabriela Goertz at 239-682-3992, email or visit
