In summer of 2019 I completed my three years of study in Zen Shiatsu  Shiatsu College London

In the first year, I achieved my Holistic Acupressure Certificate, I’m qualified to practice with this alone; however I wanted to delve in much deeper into the world of Zen Shiatsu - I continued on with my studies for a further two years, and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

 For the first two years of my studies, I was required to record 50 treatments per year! In the third year, I am required to record 85!!

I travelled to London every month to study with my peers (33 weekends in total), learn more techniques and get valuable class time. 

Whilst studying in the 2nd & 3rd year as students, I joined in the Friday clinic sessions the college run for the public to attend, this is a great experience; we get to work in a professional setting, with our experienced tutors on hand for guidance and hopefully great feedback! If you’re interested to know more about this fantastic opportunity have a look at Shiatsu College London website.
