The Shiatsu School, Edinburgh was set up in 2000 by Audicia Lynne Morley, Cynthia Shuken and Tamsin Grainger, all graduates of The Glasgow School of Shiatsu, taught by Elaine Liechti.
In the summer of 2015, Tamsin and Elaine created the East West Shiatsu School Scotland, the advanced training facility of The Shiatsu School Edinburgh and the Glasgow School of Shiatsu. This new school runs years 2 and 3 of the Shiatsu Practitioner Training, offering students the combined skills and facilities of both entities. Each individual school also continues to offer introductory, year 1, graduate and other courses.
All courses follow the Core Curriculum laid down by The Shiatsu Society (UK).
The vision of The Shiatsu School Edinburgh is to teach with creativity, embracing in its work the fundamentals of care and self-development inherent in Shiatsu itself.
Principal teachers are Members of the professional Register of The Shiatsu Society (UK), (MRSS*), and Shiatsu Society Qualified Teachers.
