Ki Kai Shiatsu School offers professional training in Shiatsu & Movement Shiatsu.
This is offered as a one year Certificate in Movement Shiatsu followed by a two year Diploma in Movement Shiatsu. We also offer a Diploma in Shiatsu Completion Year, which supports students who have done two or more years in Shiatsu but who are looking to complete assignments, case studies etc.   These courses are supported by an on-line virtual school, workshops and residential courses and are in the process of being ratified by the Shiatsu Society UK In the event that the school is successfully ratified by the Shiatsu Society UK, students who have fulfilled all course requirements will automatically attain professional status, qualifying as Members of the Register of the Shiatsu Society UK (MRSS).

The training is equally suitable for those wishing to become professional Shiatsu therapists and those seeking self-development and personal growth. Learning to become sensitive and responsive to the physical and personal changes in our clients inevitably brings about profound changes in us; this work can genuinely be described as life changing.

Preceded by a stand alone introductory weekend workshop: The Six Forms of Touch lead by Bill Palmer and Teresa Hadland on 26th & 27th January 2019.

The next 1st Year Certificate in Movement Shiatsu Course and the next Diploma in Shiatsu Completion Year Course start on the weekend of 23rd & 24th February 2019. These courses run over 10 weekends approximately monthly on both Saturday and Sunday. Even if you have missed our first weekend you are still welcome, as all material covered will be revisited in more detail during the course. The Ki Kai teaching style is informal and supportive, our emphasis is on experiential learning and exploratory approaches to working more interactively with clients as the essence of Movement Shiatsu.
