What is Shiatsu?
Iokai Shiatsu is a manual therapy that complements regular medicine well. Using the thumb, fingers and palms of the hands, the therapist applies pressure on the meridians to enable a free flow of vital life energy through the body. Where needed, he or she will also mobilise and stretch certain joints. By doing this the body’s self-healing ability is strengthened.

The professional Shiatsu training is a part-time program. The curriculum is composed in such a way that the shiatsu course can be easily combined if you have a job or other obligations in addition to your studies. Characteristic of the course is the emphasis on the practice in which you practice the teaching material under supervision of your fellow students. You give shiatsu and receive shiatsu.
Lessons are supported by videos and other material made available through our online learning environment. The theory of eastern medicine is given online via webinars that you can repeat in your own time.
