Following three days of intensive training with other qualified Shiatsu therapists, I’ve become a Samurai Shiatsu Practitioner. It was inspirationally led by Karin Kalbantner-Wernicke, founder of the Samurai Shiatsu Programme, and Svenja Schaper, translator and UK co-ordinator. We left feeling confident to deliver the School Samurai Programme to children and older adults. This well-structured programme has been delivered extensively in Germany and Austria and is also available in France, Switzerland, Hungary and the Netherlands. This training was offered for the first time in the UK and if you would like information see the Samurai Shiatsu website or contact me.
