Australian Shiatsu College

The Australian Shiatsu College was founded in Melbourne in 1985 and has a unique place in the world of complementary healing practices by integrating the Japanese-developed harmonising therapy, Shiatsu, with the Chinese medical theory from which it originated.

The College's main academic focus is the national accredited Diploma of Shiatsu and Oriental Therapies (HLT52215). In 2016 the College commenced the new qualification, Diploma of Shiatsu and Oriental Therapies HLT52215 from the HLT- Health (Release 2.0) training package.

The Diploma of Shiatsu and Oriental Therapies is delivered onsite at the Australian Shiatsu College. The College is fully equipped with educational spaces, clinical treatment space and spaces for students to come together informally on site. The journey to becoming a shiatsu practitioner involves a complex discovery of self-awareness and a working knowledge of and attunement to the human condition. Shiatsu is energetic work; as such, it is much more than a process of acquiring then applying clinical knowledge and skills. Shiatsu practitioners require a mindful grounded presence, and the development of personal responsiveness to the flow of Qi/Ki. Effective shiatsu requires the practitioner to come to know, appreciate and care for their own Qi/Ki in order to appreciate the human condition in its many presentations. A competent Shiatsu practitioner is able to identify, respond to, and support the correction of energy/Qi/Ki imbalances.

The Australian Shiatsu College remains committed to the promotion of Shiatsu and Oriental healing arts
