Holistic Acupressure online taster session @ Online
Sep 6 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am

Exploring our energies through movement & acupoints

Our monthly Sunday sessions through the Summer have been a great success, and September’s date is the last chance to get an online flavour of our classes before the beginning of our courses on 26/27 September.

We’re repeating the format but with different content – this time getting in touch with our own channels through gentle stretching and then working a major acupoint on each: so you will have some useful points to practices on yourself and others!

If you’ve attended any of the previous online sessions you are welcome again, to build your knowledge and experience.  Those new to the College and curious about our work are encouraged to give it a try.  And if you have a friend who might be interested or who could benefit from this work please forward this newsletter to them.

If you are considering studying Holistic Acupressure this is a great way to get a direct experience of what you can learn and achieve.

To sum up – all are welcome to join!

The hour will be followed by time to ask questions about The Shiatsu College, the 1 year Holistic Acupressure Certificate course and our 3 year Shiatsu Diploma course.

To register for this event please email the Shiatsu College.

The session is free but if you would like, please make a donation via
