The London College of Shiatsu was established in 1987. Our purpose is to teach the style of Shiatsu studied by its main teachers in Japan at the Iokai Centre and under Takeo Suzuki.

The College offers various classes and workshops including a three-year Shiatsu practitioner course. This consists of weekly practical Shiatsu classes as well as theory classes in western sciences and oriental medical theory. The College also offers final year students the opportunity to enter a supervised student clinic.

The London College of Shiatsu teaches and promotes meridian and zone therapy as a gentle yet effective therapeutic style of Shiatsu. Our practical and down to earth approach is accessible to anyone, whatever their previous experience.
