The Belgian Shiatsu Federation

We aim to make Shiatsu known to a wide audience
and to train practitioners in this art or profession 

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



Training centres

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



We have a special price for students or sympathising members who have completed an exam and want to become an active practicing member within the year following their exam. Please note  -  this advantage can only be obtained once!

The Belgian Shiatsu Federation was founded in 1990. We are a professional association, recognized by the Ministry of Economic Affairs 2010. Our organisation connects Shiatsu practitioners, schools, training centers and sympathisers. We aim to make Shiatsu known to a wide audience and to train practitioners in this art and profession. We strive for full recognition of the profession and protection of the professional title in Belgium.

We hold close ties with the European Shiatsu Federation (ESF). The ESF has branches all across Europe, including Austria, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Sweden, the UK and of course Belgium.

We welcome every individual who is interested in eastern or complementary health 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.
