SAM Bursary long banner

Join us this June in celebrating Shiatsu Awareness Month

Our SAM bursary has been successfully delivered for a second year. Designed to support members in running their own activities in June - #ShiatsuAwarenessMonth - the bursary funds have been fully allocated. 

The response has been enormously positive, our bursary closed early as we received a fantastic response from our practitioners. Shiatsu awareness month in June is a brilliant opportunity for us to work with Shiatsu practitioners across the UK to raise awareness of the wonderful benefits of Shiatsu. There are so many incredible activities happening, we are delighted to support these and show how Shiatsu can support everyone, young or old, in body and mind. 

Here are some examples of how the bursary will be put to good use:

Who we are

Established in 1981, the Shiatsu Society is the UK's leading professional association for Shiatsu practitioners. We also act as an information hub for the public; providing information on the benefits of Shiatsu, how to contact a Registered Practitioner and where to train in Shiatsu.

Our mission is to establish Shiatsu as an officially recognised therapy and to have our members acknowledged as essential healthcare workers in the promotion of positive health and well-being. Our Shiatsu Awareness Month bursary is one of the ways we support our members and promote the many benefits of Shiatsu. 

June is #ShiatsuAwarenessMonth
