Why study shiatsu with Wellmother?

We support women to be more connected to their maternity experience and believe that shiatsu is a powerful tool to support you in your work with women. On completing 6 days study with us, you receive the Wellmother Diploma which allows you to integrate a different form of touch based support into your work.

You can find out more about shiatsu from reading about how midwives have used it in their work

Suzanne’s course for midwives enabled me in 6 days to have a good knowledge of the main ways in which to balance energy with shiatsu. I was able to use it immediately in my work.

Shiatsu touch enables a quick and profound connection with a labouring woman. Almost immediately she can relax and go with the process. My connections with my clients have been enriched.
