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.

Tai Chi Shibashi Workshops:

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.

Covid-19 Update:

Due to the virus many venues have closed in-line with Government advice to prevent the further spread of the virus so we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the Set 2 Tai Chi Shibashi workshop planned for Sunday 29th March and will try to reschedule as soon as possible.

We are leaving the planned set 3 day in the diary for the time being in the hope things have cleared up by then.

Set 3: Sunday 24th May 2020

All workshops run from 10.30 to 4.30 and cost £50.00

Shiatsu Courses:

Shiatsu for Wellbeing – Japanese Acupressure Massage course.

Our next shiatsu for wellbeing course will begin Saturday 3rd October 2020 and run for 12 weekends. This is a standalone course and is also the first year of our practitioner diploma. for full details click here.

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.
