Workshops for Midwives and Doulas

These Shiatsu workshops are suitable for professionals working in the maternity field (midwife, doula, pregnancy yoga teacher, pregnancy massage therapist). They are part of a program developed by Wellmother (

During this training you will be learn the principles of ‘Shiatsu touch’ and get some understanding of the theory behind Shiatsu including Chinese Medicine Theory. You will learn some simple Shiatsu techniques, which you can integrate straight away into your current maternity work. Giving Shiatsu can relieve physical conditions, as well as support a pregnant woman or mother to connect with herself and her baby, in a way that supports her own healing. Shiatsu is a two way process for both giver and receiver, it is very relaxing to give Shiatsu and so benefits are for both. Nicola is running one day Introduction days; these workshops give you a ‘taste’ of Shiatsu and it’s potential for supporting women in Labour and/or Postnatally. 

There are also two day foundation workshops, during which you can deepen your understanding of Shiatsu and build your confidence in using your Shiatsu skills. Dates for these will be available soon.

You can also do the Wellmother full 6 day training, which can be made up of three 2 day workshops.
