The School of Equine Shiatsu
Over the past 12 years we have established the School as THE School of Equine Shiatsu with over 200 students attending our Equine Shiatsu Courses from throughout the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe. For a limited period of time we are including with our 2013 Prospectus a free DVD which will tell you all about the School. It was filmed over a 2-day period during an actual course with input from second year students. Just click the ‘Order a Prospectus’ tab on any page and we will send you a copy of the Prospectus and DVD.
For more information on “What’s New” click here, we have details on the Diploma Course in Equine Shiatsu and a 2-day Equine Shiatsu Foundation Workshop. As part of the Diploma Course we are offering students new to the School a rare opportunity to sit in on the second module for a couple of days. We are calling it a Foundation Workshop and you will of course meet Jill and her team plus members of the course just as they set out on their 2½ year journey. If you are interested in any of these courses don’t hesitate to contact us by telephone or e-mail. We can discuss your specific situation and if appropriate put you in contact with existing students from your part of the World.
We will be running a second 3-day Foundation Course in Croatia at a new centre in Istria on 30/31st May & 1st June 2014 and a 3-day Foundation Course in West Sussex on 29/30/31 August 2014. One of our students, who we have known for some time now, Vedrana Ivcevic, is launching an equine therapy partnership in Croatia and Jill has promised to assist with the equine shiatsu part of this. She and Nick Goody took a team of current students to run a 3-day Foundation Course, which Vedrana organised in

Now is a good time to start planning your equine shiatsu journey. The Foundation Course is just what it says, an intensive introduction to the art of shiatsu and we find that 50% of people who attend this course go on to enrol on the Diploma Course. It gives you a chance to get to know us, and us to know you, and we can keep in contact over the period leading up the start of your course in October.
We now have a new page on our web-site which enables you to pay by PayPal or Credit Card thus enabling you to pay for your tuition according to your own budget. While you’re on our web-site please take some time to look around, hopefully you will find enough information to help you start your own equine shiatsu journey. We have found that most visitors spend on average 5 minutes with us on-line and we do try to keep the site up-to-date with information on the gentle art of shiatsu for horses.We have links to past students who now run their own practice, and encourage comments from everyone and anyone so please give it a go! Shiatsu for horses is a serious therapy but it’s fun to learn and fun to do.
It’s always good to report success especially where our past students are concerned. Jane Clifford was a member of our Silver Group from 2006 through to completing Post Grad in 2009. Jane then undertook a course in human shiatsu with Markus Grasser at the European Shiatsu School (ESS) in Brighton. She now has her own human and equine practice based in Ashington, West Sussex and has also worked with Jill at a day centre for clients with special needs. You can visit Jane at her brand new web-site:
Jane Horsman was one of our first group of students back in 2003 and she says: “I love the new look website and especially the photos of all the students. It brought back fond memories of the days we spent together learning shiatsu. What a great time we all had!” One of our students is practicing equine shiatsu in Spain, another in Hungary, and I have visited Latvia to demonstrate shiatsu at a major equine conference in Riga.
As part of the redesign we’ve come up with a new contact form which will enable you to request information on our courses easily and automatically. If you want to have a chat please give us a call on +44 (0)1903 814 860.That’s all for now, we look forward to hearing from you soon
