Our next Holistic Acupressure Certificate and Professional Shiatsu Practitioner Diploma courses start in October 2021 and the planning for these dates are underway, so if you are interested in these studies please make contact to express your interest and we will keep you updated for registration.

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 encourage students to connect out with the wider community. Experience that is so beneficial for becoming a professional practitioner.
