Welcome to the Devon School of Shiatsu website The school was established by Oliver Cowmeadow in 1985 and was one of the very first schools in the UK offering in-depth shiatsu training. It has the ideal setting for study, based in its own rooms in a converted barn a few miles from Totnes, a mainline railway station, in peaceful Devonshire countryside.
The school has gained an excellent reputation for its in-depth teaching on how to approach a wide variety of health problems with shiatsu, fully preparing students for a busy clinical practice. It has trained many successful graduates, with established practices across the UK and the world.
We have a strong and dedicated teaching faculty who are all engaged in clinical practice and our students regularly express what a life changing, enjoyable time training in shiatsu has been - making new friends, finding a new vocation in life, learning about themselves and healing others along the way.
