Shiatsu College Brighton

Welcome to the Brighton Branch of The Shiatsu College.

The next Holistic Acupressure Certificate and Professional Shiatsu Practitioner Diploma courses start in September 2020 and we are taking registrations now.  We are also offering the 1st weekend as an Introduction to Holistic Acupressure, so if you want to know what a full weekend of studying is like before committing to the full year, or just want some simple techniques to practice of family and friends, this is a great option.

The Brighton College branch is based at the Sussex MS Centre, a beacon of integrated healthcare in the South East area. Our students come from all over the region and over the years, together we have built a supportive, effective network of clinics and events that offer students abundant practical experience that is so beneficial for becoming a professional practitioner.

Our plans for the coming year are flexible to ensure for any uncertainties regarding  Coronavirus measures.  So, once the year has started, we will provide you with a minimum of 9 full face to face weekends by extending the year as necessary, the other 2 being online.  Fingers crossed we won’t have to and all the weekends can be at the lovely MS Centre!
