Shiatsu College London

Welcome to the London Branch of The Shiatsu College

Due to the ongoing and changing situation with the Coronavirus pandemic we have had to cancel our Holistic Acupressure Certificate  and Professional Shiatsu Diploma courses for 2020-21. However we will be running Introductory Days and Practice Sessions from June 2021 onwards, see “Workshop & Classes” further down on this page or get in touch if you would like any more details. The planned dates for our Practitioner Courses for 2021-22 are shown below.

The London branch of The Shiatsu College is conveniently located only a 12 min walk from Brixton tube station and it’s famous Brixton market, at the light and airy EffraSpace, a workshop, event and therapy centre. Just around the corner you’ll find the wide open spaces of Brockwell Park and the Lido. We attract students from many different countries and backgrounds, all coming together to experience the personal and enriching art of learning Shiatsu in a welcoming and supportive atmosphere. We offer a 1 year accredited Acupressure course and a 3 year Level 4 Diploma in Shiatsu (RQF).
