 May I be the doctor and the medicine, 

And may I be the nurse, 

For all sick beings in the world, 

Until everyone is healed



BASIC LEARNING  Learning the Ropes - start anytime!

Learn how to move around, how to give a good shiatsu treatment, how to protect yourself from needless backpain, and from energy depletion or contamination; to develop sensitivity to your participant; learn what conditions are best left alone until you have more experience, and which ones are contra-indicated anyway. Learn the art of gentle healing. Learn something about yourself, too, and of the gift Nature has given you for this work. 

By the end of the Practical Certificate course you should be confident enough to give enjoyable treatments. After completing 20 practice-treatment notes (in your own time, on family, friends or fellow-students) you can take the assessment to qualify for your

Certificate in Practical Shiatsu (CPS) 


You can complete the 12 Learning-Modules of the Starter Course in any of the following ways:

 over six months on the Third Saturday of each month 10am to 1 pm and 2-5pm (Saturdays have two class-sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon) 

OR   over 12 weeks on Tuesday evenings 6.30-9.30 pm, throughout the year, start any time

OR  12 weeks on Thursday afternoons 2.30-5.30 pm, throughout the year, start any time

OR    5-day INTENSIVES 10 am to 5 pm Monday to Friday, five times a year.

GETTING STARTED Just turn up and register 15 minutes before start-time (altho' we do suggest you register in advance for the 5-Day Intensive)


The Practical Certificate Course fee is just 397 in advance, pay when you register, or pay-as-you-go at 39 per class (except Intensives). We accept  cash, cheque (not post-dated, sorry!) and most credit cards.

If you combine any Starter Course with an Intermediate Course you pay only the Intermediate Course fee.
