Excellent course with a very compassionate tutor who has over 40 years of experience in Shiatsu and other massage therapies. The course covered Shiatsu/acupressure points for the face plus oil based massage for shoulders , neck, face and head . Class size was good (9) any larger and the group would have been too large . The course is hands on throughout and not a moment was wasted . Plenty of practise time .
