School of Five Element Shiatsu and Tai Chi Qigong

The School of Five Element Shiatsu was founded to teach the fundamentals of Traditional Eastern healing arts and to increase awareness of Shiatsu and Acupressure, Tai Chi (TaiJi) Qigong Shibashi and Reiki.

Covid-19 Update:

Our teaching venues are opening again from September and so we will be starting to teach again. We are not yet sure about shiatsu classes but will begin with a Tai Chi Shibashi set 3 workshop on Sunday 29th November in Salisbury.

Hopefully everything will be back to normal soon

In the meantime we are working hard to update our courses and develop an online teaching platform.

TaiJi Qigong is a beautiful, gentle and flowing style of Qigong that is both a delight to do and extremely relaxing. Sets one and two complement one another and can be studied independently. Set three takes you to a deeper level of understanding and its necessary to have learned the previous two sets before studying this level.


Shiatsu is a physical therapy developed in the early part of the 20th century in Japan, it uses a range of techniques including acupressure along meridian lines to stimulate a healing response in the body, it also involves gentle stretches and joint mobilisationsShiatsu_side_position.

Shiatsu is a powerful healing art, it is not only a deeply relaxing experience but also a truly holistic therapy and lifestyle medicine. It works on both the physical and energetic level to stimulate harmony in body, mind and spirit. Regular sessions help to prevent the build up of stress in our daily lives.

Qigong is an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and millions of people practice Qigong
in China and around the world each day to successfully treat diseases ranging from arthritis to psychological problems to cancer and of course to improve their overall health.

Qigong is not simply an exercise, it is a dynamic meditation that combines slow graceful movements with mental concentration and breathing to increase and balance a person’s vital energy.
