One to One Online sessions can take two forms:

  1. Online in person session which involves a personalised consultation to suit your needs. Techniques used draw from – guided self Shiatsu or Thai Massage techniques incorporating Acupoints, Meridian stretching, Mindfulness, breathwork or guided visualisation PLUS further self care care recommendations, which can be emailed to you with any useful links etc. Please book as normal and select the option “Online Consututation”. We use Zoom platform but can also use other platforms if necessary.
  2. Distance Shiatsu Healing Session. For this you make the appointment as usual but we won’t have phone or video contact during the session because you are resting and receiving and the therapist is doing the Shiatsu diagnosis, and treatment, followed by assessment. You will be contacted for a brief consultation beforehand, where you receive instructions and will give a summary of your needs for the session. Afterwards the therapist will send observations from the session and any useful recommendations and information for you. Please book as normal and select the option “Online Consultation”.

Emerging into Spring

At last spring has come and across all our different cultures and traditions similar themes arise as it brings hope. We celebrate renewal of the green, and re-emergence of all creatures great and small after the winter of lockdown and hibernation. From worms and frogs to caterpillars and……massage therapists!

In Impossible Darkness

Do you know how the caterpillar turns?

Do you remember what happens inside a cocoon?

You liquefy.

There in the thick black of your self-spun womb, void as the moon before waxing, you melt (as Christ did for three days in the tomb) conceiving in impossible darkness the sheer inevitability of wings

by Kim Rosen

We have plenty of reason to celebrate spring here at Shiatsu and Thai Massage Training Scotland (STMTS). Firstly, we therapists sharing the space are able to return to close contact services and THE DIARY IS OPEN! Also Ruth, Lesley and I are pleased to welcome our colleague Freya of Rowan Therapies to the team of therapists in residence, she will be working on Thursdays.

Secondly – just like schools throughout the world, STMTS has adapted to change and our students have responded with incredible resilience. This year’s TYM Diploma cohort had only two weekends in person training before transferring to Zoom but all through

the winter they have hung on with open hearts and determination, and with the generosity of their family members giving themselves up for endless massages (!) the students have made it through! I am so delighted and amazed at their professionalism. Watch this space there is a group of amazing therapists just about to hit the market!

…even our school mascot Frankie was on duty for the observed assessments! Along with tutors Lesley and me, and our dedicated assistant who has nipped out for a second….

FHT Accreditation

Last year we gave ourselves a big pat on the back for becoming an accredited training provider with Federation of Holistic Therapists. This year I am pleased to be invited to represent STMTS and Well Mother with a specialist Pregnancy Massage workshop at the Virtual Congress. I had a blast making the video during lockdown and my past history as a performer and digital film maker came in handy! You can see the end product (edited in iMovie with great sophistication) in June at FHT Virtual Congress

And finally, we have something to ask from you…. Thanks to you all for your support and interest, we celebrated reaching 100 subscribers on Youtube thanks to you!

Here’s wishing you renewed strength and vitality this spring season, and asking for two more things from you, if you are able:
1. Be kind to each other
2. Be part of the Solution.
