Welcome to the Devon School of Shiatsu

Established in 1985, the Devon School of Shiatsu was one of the first schools offering in depth training in shiatsu in the UK. It has the ideal setting for study, based in its own rooms in a converted barn and stable in peaceful Devonshire countryside.

Shiatsu is a very versatile therapy. Its core is hands on bodywork, working with the Ki flow through the meridian and chakra systems to bring about physical and emotional healing, but it also encompasses giving dietary, exercise and life style recommendations to aid clients’ healing, and simple emotional counselling.

Shiatsu is now becoming widely recognised as a valuable therapy for a wide range of physical and emotional health problems. As well as being used in private practice, it is being increasingly used within the NHS in areas like pain management, support for people with HIV, AIDS and autism.

Our students and graduates often say that studying to become a shiatsu practitioner was a life changing experience, and the best thing they have done in their lives. As a practitioner the journey of discovery, self-healing and growth continues, along with the satisfaction of helping many people in their healing journey....
