Advanced Students (students in year 2 and 3 of their Shiatsu training) receive insurance within the membership fee, provided you are using techniques and protocols taught by your Shiatsu School. Beginner Students (Year 1) do not have insurance included, they are deemed to be working on family and friends in Yr1 and therefore insurance cover is not required.
Students going into Y2 and above have student insurance cover included in their membership fee as a Student Advanced (£6.50 per month) provided they are using techniques and protocols taught by their Shiatsu School, and under these conditions:
i) students do not practice outside the scope of what they have been taught, and that regular supervision and/or ongoing case consultation and review for such case studies is in place
ii) Students are to declare to any recipient in advance that they are not qualified
iii) students may charge a fee if appropriate, provided this is allowed by the tutor or school in question and that it is a modest amount and evidently lower than an experienced and qualified professional would normally charge
