Route for student membership
Free Guest Membership
All new students (from both Ratified and non Ratified Schools) may contact the Shiatsu Society and gain FREE Guest Student Member status stating the school you are to be registered with. This free Guest Student Membership is available from when you enrol on the first year of your Shiatsu training course (at any point after 1st August), and will be valid until the following January.
Student Beginner membership runs from 1st January until you have completed your Year 1 course. Current cost £24, payable by DD £2 per month. Please note that Student Beginner membership does not include insurance to practise Shiatsu.
When you enter the 2nd Year of Shiatsu training your School will notify the Shiatsu Society that you are now a Student Advanced member, which includes insurance provided by the Shiatsu Society.
The Shiatsu Society will contact you to provide additional information required for insurance purposes, and to increase your DD to £6.50 per month. If you practise other low risk therapies you can contact Balens directly via your member dashboard to include these in your policy (additional charge £17). Student Advanced membership continues through your 3rd year of training.
Advanced Students graduating from a Ratified School are eligible to go automatically onto the MrSS Register. Your Shiatsu School will notify the Shiatsu Society of your graduation.
