Shiatsu Course

Shiatsu is a form of Oriental Massage. The name comes from the “shi” meaning “finger” and “atsu” meaning “pressure”. Shiatsu is a Japanese healing art, deeply rooted in the philosophy and practices of traditional Chinese medicine. The techniques are easily learned and are extremely effective.

This course complements our course in Acupressure.

Shiatsu Course Feedback

Brenda Windram

How can I thank you enough for this marvellous course in Shiatsu? Thank you, thank you and thank you!

I deliberately delayed finishing it because I wanted it to sink in well, especially since I continue to learn so much from it. The link up with Acupressure and some of the other courses I have taken has made the learning experience so rich and beneficial and I use it ALL the time.

As you can see from the progression of the practical sessions, I am learning more all the time and increasing in my effectiveness as a practitioner.

In the last month I have been working 3 times a week with a stroke patient and have been delighted with his progress.
