There are two routes to obtain the Professional Certificate. It can be done in two years
following the most common route or in one year with our fast track programme.
Both routes give access to supervised practice outside the minimum required class
and practice hours.
After obtaining the certificate, students can access our Postgraduate Diploma Course
where students will treat real patients under the teacher's supervision.
Students in the postgraduate year can choose to work at the same time towards
the Postgraduate Diploma in Oncological & Palliative Care Shiatsu. The training in
oncological shiatsu takes place in an NHS hospital where students will treat cancer
and palliative care patients.
Students will also be issued with an NHS Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Practice.
All our professional courses include training in the treatment of specific conditions
in sotai ho to a very advanced level, so you won't need to do any extra courses.

The Professional Shiatsu School was created with the aim of training shiatsu
and sotai professional practitioners. With this aim in mind, we follow the core
curriculum of Japanese shiatsu schools, and our training includes working
on a table as well as on the futon, and a clinical year in which students treat
real patients under the teacher's supervision.
