Her teaching is laced with a mischievous sense of humour and she is thrilled when her students also experience the possibility of the universe as a harmonious whole. She is an Editor for the Shiatsu Society Journal, former Chair of Shiatsu Society and her Acupuncture MSc Dissertation was on Shiatsu for people with shoulder pain.

Originally an Art College graduate, Mandy is also a potter.
Hannah Mackay PhD BA FwSS
Hannah is a creative person and expresses her curiosity of life through the writing of poetry. She also enjoys exploring energy and embodiment through movement and dance. Hannah has a very inquisitive nature which comes across in her exploration of how best to facilitate her students in gaining their own understanding of Shiatsu and Chinese Medicine. She has a background in academic research (psychotherapy and complementary medicine) which really supports her role as a Shiatsu teacher. Hannah has also completed a specialist training in using shiatsu to support mothers during pregnancy and childbirth.
Karey Taylor MA, Acupuncture Dip. FWSS
Karey was drawn to Shiatsu as an antidote to a stressful career in managing hostels for homeless people. Having known little about Shiatsu at the time, she felt compelled to study it and changed jobs so to give space for it in her life. She has continued to develop as a practitioner, studying Acupuncture to broaden her understanding of Traditional Chinese Medicine and moving into Sei Ki practice as a way to deepen her Shiatsu and connection with people and the universe. Karey has always been driven by a desire for social justice and equality and continues to work as an advocate for children in care.
