Why study Shiatsu?
Shiatsu offers an antidote to our stress-filled  lives. Touch is essential to life! The faster the pace of living, the more exhausted we become. We live on adrenaline,
Our fast paced society has immediate access to all forms of communications, yet people find their lives empty, their careers unfulfilling. They seek more from life, not sure how to find it. There is an overwhelming need for bodyworkers who are the catalyst for change. By bringing the receiver's attention to their bodies, people begin to seek a healthier lifestyle.  


Who studies Shiatsu?
Anyone interested in energy work, seeking change may be attracted to shiatsu.
Students, ages 18 to 73, from  many varied backgrounds find shiatsu a powerful protocol for transformation. In the Beginner's Weekend, Intro to Shiatsu, students learn to apply palm and thumb pressure following the sequence called Whole Body.

Students of Martial Arts, who are already familiar with the concept of energy, seek to learn the healing qualities of energy. Yoga instructors, nurses, physical therapists, and teachers are attracted to Shiatsu and find many ways to integrate the material to enhance their current career path.

Continuing education hours are available for those who need NCBTMB hours for renewal of licenses. Contact the school for available courses. Check with your association to be sure they'll accept our CE hours.

Open House:
Come to visit Shiatsu Center and the Doylestown.  Observe the students and feel the energy in the classroom. You can observe shiatsu sessions and see how each session is customized to the client's condition. Ask questions and share some time with the current students.

Time commitment:

The Shiatsu Foundation and Practitioner Programs are more than 700 hours. Students may take one course at a time or take several courses in one semester.
