At Aberdeen Shiatsu we teach a comprehensive Practitioner Training Course in Shiatsu. The course meets the guidelines of The Shiatsu Society, the UK’s Governing Body for Shiatsu.
The full course lasts three years. This is a long training to commit to, that’s why we split the 1st Year into two parts, the Shiatsu-Acupressure for Health course (seven weekends), followed by the First Year Completion (six weekends). The Shiatsu-Acupressure for Health course gives you a clear insight into this Healing Art. You will learn the major meridians and points as well as the special qualities of Shiatsu touch. The First Year Completion Course is where we start to apply the information learned so far and deepen the practice of Shiatsu, our understanding of energy work and Chinese Medicine.
The focus of the teaching places great emphasis on the quality of touch and the energy work surrounding Shiatsu. This supports the theory and makes the practical aspects feel truly relevant.
Shiatsu is not just a treatment which is done to others. It is very much about the self. Growth work and self-exploration are essential parts of the training of a good Shiatsu Practitioner. Within the Training we aim to provide support teachers and practice classes to help students in the Shiatsu and in their self development.
All teachers are long standing practitioners. We all delight in seeing the change and self-empowerment that Shiatsu brings to our clients and find this a very fulfilling career.
