Presently, there are no London courses available

The Colchester school has been running since 1997 in an idyllic rural setting just outside Colchester, with easy rail and road links from London, East Anglia and the UK in general.

We are dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of teaching and practise. Since our establishment in 1983, we have been reviewing and developing our syllabus to incorporate the most effective treatment methods. This brings us a rich healing therapy based in ancient roots, and meeting the ever-changing demands of modern life.

Our commitment to excellence brings us the First Year training in Shiatsu-Shin Tai. At the end of this year, students can obtain insurance and practise professionally, while they continue with the full Shiatsu-Do Diploma if they wish.

The school in Essex offers a full 3-year training.  All our courses are fully ratified by the Shiatsu Society UK, and insured through Balens Ltd.

With a dedicated team of teachers, we are able to offer a caring support structure for our students and graduates including, practice classes, mentors, teaching assistants, and an approachable teaching team.
