About Me

About me and Shiatsu (Qualifications and training)


I began to study Shiatsu in 1994 with one of the UK's leading schools, The British School of Shiatsu-Do. For the next four years I was guided and supervised through many of the wide ranging aspects of Shiatsu by talented and enthusiastic teachers/practitioners, before being examined and assessed, and qualifying in 1998.

Following this I passed the Shiatsu Society Assessment to achieve Member of the Register of the Shiatsu Society (MRSS) status. This registration is the full qualification of a Shiatsu practitioner in the UK. To maintain it, I have to be bound by the Society's code of ethics and hold full professional indemnity and public liability insurance.
