"​I have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a rare connective tissue disorder that causes joint dislocations and chronic pain. it also negatively affects a person’s proprioception: I can’t tell where my body is in space. After seeing so many doctors and specialists who told me nothing could be done to ease my pain, or suggested I try heavy pain killers or sever my nerves altogether, I decided to try shiatsu at Shiatsu School of Vermont. What did I have to lose? After just one session I noticed a difference in my knee pain, which I’d been dealing with for four years. I had severe nerve damage in my knee from an accident so even light touch was very painful. I’d tried topical pain killers, physical therapy, multiple knee braces, all with no improvement. Shiatsu was the only thing that helped, because Shiatsu works WITH the body and helps the body use its own healing system effectively. Please, if you live with chronic pain, don’t keep seeking help from people who do not believe you can heal. Shiatsu is non invasive. You don’t have to deal with insurance companies, and you will discover the empowerment that comes with realizing your body has its own fantastic healing system. Shiatsu helps your body do what it is meant to do. Your body WANTS to heal. Let it." -- Paula Marie, Jan 8, 2017

"The Shiatsu School of Vermont is an excellent resource to the community and I feel privileged that I got to experience it. I would say to anyone considering wonderful bodywork or a career that it is a class act for sure." -- Renee L Vondle, June 24, 2017.

"That was the best neck and shoulder work ever! I feel there is a total connection from my head into my torso and into my pelvis. My neck is the most relaxed it’s been since I can remember. I have a range of motion that I haven’t felt for years. The rolling arm technique released my tennis elbow. Thank you!" -- Michael Jaro, June 26, 2017

"The students seemed to employ a number of methods that were tailored to my areas and types of pain. The whole experience felt unified and natural. The rotation and stretching of my hips really felt like it took pressure off my lower back and allowed me movement that I normally cannot do myself. Thank you!" -- AW, June 25, 2017.​

Arlette Greer, teacher at our sister school in Chicago, explains why she chose Shiatsu after earning a PhD in Psychology.

​​Zen Shiatsu is a form of Asian Medicine from Japan, a living tradition that is still evolving.

It is a powerful therapy that brings healing to the practitioner as well as the client. It uses diagnostic and treatment strategies similar to Acupuncture but is achieved through a cultivated touch and centered, improvised bodywork techniques.  Zen Shiatsu restores the natural cycles of the body to correct internal and external disease patterns
