Certificate in Japanese Acupressure Weekends

Certificate in Japanese Acupressure (180 IMTA CPD points)

(Level one of Shiatsu Diploma Course)

This is a stand-alone Certificate course in Shiatsu. It is the first stage of a three year programme that will allow you to become a fully qualified Shiatsu Practitioner. This year focuses on developing your awareness of the client’s body with emphasis on using the traditional methods of the Japanese acupressure therapy called Shiatsu. It is a unique opportunity to achieve a qualification in Japanese acupressure techniques.

The basis of this training comes from the teachings of Shiatsu and Japanese bodywork and an understanding of anatomy. Experiential Shiatsu – giving and receiving- is the core of the course. Each module has a distinct emphasis and theme. They are designed so that some modules can be taken individually. for a deeper, more integrated learning, we strongly advise you to consider several or all modules. Students must complete all modules and assessments in order to receive their certificate.

By the end of this certificate year you will be:

  • competent in offering a relaxing, rejuvenating shiatsu treatment to clients for optimum health.
  • proficient in a range of Ki enhancing exercises that provide energy and body awareness and that support health and stamina.
  • familiar with the theories of Yin & Yang, Ki energy and the classical meridian system.

Weekend classes take place monthly over 7 months starting Jan 2023 (Chair Module Optional extra)
