What is Shiatsu?

Shi-atsu, Japanese for 'finger-pressure', can briefly be described as the Japanese style of acupressure. In reality it is much more than that!


The yearly membership fee for Shiatsu officially recognised practitioners is €120. There is a possibility to get a liability insurance via our association.



Training centers

Membership fee for centers that organise one or more cycles is €250. Study centers (i.e. only organising introductory courses or postgraduate education) will enjoy a price reduction of 50%.



For students or sympathising members that have completed an exam and that want to become a practitioning member within the next year after that exam. Watch out, this benefit can only be used once.

The Belgian Shiatsu Federation was founded in 1990. We are a professional association, recognized by the ministry of the middle class since 2010. Our organization connects Shiatsu practitioners, schools, training centers and sympathizers. We aim to make Shiatsu known to a wide audience and to train practitioners in this art or profession. We strive for full recognition of the profession and protection of the profession title in Belgium.

We hold close ties with the European Shiatsu Federation (ESF). They have branches all over Europe, including the UK, Italy, Germany, Austria, Switserland, Spain, France, The Netherlands and Belgium.

We welcome any individual that has any form of interest towards eastern or complementary medicinal techniques, and the unique and powerful benefits of Shiatsu. YOU can become a member of the Belgian Shiatsu Federation. You can find all necessary information on this website.
