One-Year Shiatsu Certification Program Begins this September




Travel to beautiful Vermont for one four-day weekend each month, beginning September 29, to become a certified Shiatsu practitioner. The year-long program will end September 23, 2018.

Zen Shiatsu is a form of Asian bodywork therapy from Japan, a meditative physical practice that brings healing to the practitioner as well as the client. The Shiatsu School of Vermont is one of two Zen Shiatsu schools in the country that is certified as a professional program by the American Organization for Bodywork Therapies of Asia.

Students learn qigong and other meditative techniques to cultivate a strong internal presence that allows them to receive healing while simultaneously empowering their clients to restore health and balance. Shiatsu assesses and treats the same meridians as acupuncture using healing touch, stretches and joint rotations. Zen Shiatsu is characterized by graceful, rhythmic movements choreographed by the practitioner.

Graduates of the certification program at the Shiatsu School of Vermont enables students to practice in many states in the U.S. For students that wish to practice Shiatsu in a state that requires a massage therapy license, the Shiatsu School of Vermont offers additional courses to prepare and qualify students to take the massage and bodywork licensing examination (MBLEx).

Location: 24 High Street, Brattleboro, VT. For more information and pricing, call 802-246-0877 or visit ShiatsuVT.org.
