An initial consultation will normally last about an hour and will involve questions about your medical history, symptoms and sleep patterns. A treatment plan will also be devised and the number of sessions required will depend upon the nature of the symptoms.

Shiatsu is currently unregulated within the UK. This means there are no laws which stipulate what, if any, qualifications and experience are required in order to practice. Practitioners can join a professional association and they do require members to provide proof of qualifications, as well as adhering to a Code of Ethics and Conduct.

The main Shiatsu professional association is the Shiatsu Society.

All Shiatsu practitioners on the site have indicated they are members of a professional body, however it advised you also make the necessary checks.

Our Shiatsu description was kindly supplied by Alice Hartley.
