You can follow our Shiatsu Training Course out of personal interest, to stimulate your own personal development, or as the foundation for your own Shiatsu Professional Career.
After completing the course and the requirements to pass the exams, you receive the accredited Certificate ” Shiatsu Relaxation Practitioner ” issued by the Belgian Shiatsu Federation, recognised by the European Shiatsu Federation.

Our vision: We invite you to reflect on the question ‘what is health and how can we improve it’. How does a healthy body feels like? Is health just the exclusion of sickness or do we long for more?
In modern life, we are so indulged in mind activity that most of us are not aware of the physical nor the energetic body.  We only notice the body when something goes wrong er when we feel pain. During this course, you learn to feel and to sense the physical and energetic body at all times. This way, we can remain in touch with our physical reality, nurture a complete sense of well-being, and we can be ready to develop ourselves as professional Shiatsu practitioners.

What will we do?  The first thing we learn is to be able to relax our self. Our own level of well-being determines the sense of well-being of the person we’ll treat.
We reflect on the true meaning of health. We learn to be attentive to our resources, and how to use them to enlarge our base for our well-being. We learn to be present in the here and now, in your physical manifestation.

The O-KI Shiatsu Style is characterized by a respectful approach towards the person, his-her energy state and with a complete respect of his-hers integrity.
We take the time to listen before we offer the treatment.

O-KI Shiatsu is performed by gentle pressure and slow movements, which – contradictionary to some belief – trigger deep action in the energy flow of the meridians. We respect the order of nature, by working on the harmonization of the interconnectedness of the five elements of which the body is constituted from.

Our Shiatsu follows therefore not a linear approach, but a unifying approach; that is to say that we seek to understand the play of creation through the five elements.

Through the Holistic approach you become part of the solution. So we establish an environment favorable to healing by discovering a new balance in the perpetual movement of the five elements. This happens on a physical, mental/emotional and spiritual level.

This is the base for the Shiatsu Training. We develop our own energetic faculties, which we use as then as the base to develop the specific Shiatsu techniques and practice.

We are dedicated to offer you:

  • Quality education and professional education techniques
  • The price includes all charges – no unpleasant surprises
  • Dedicated staff and teachers
  • Integration of KI in all aspects of the training
  • Respect for each other’s integrity
  • Connection with nature and with the natural seasonal cycles
  • The vision of the complete healthy state, as the reference in every observation and every treatment
  • First the body, then the mind
  • Union of Eastern and Western values and ways of perception
  • Honoring our basic idea : don’t fight against disease but strenghten the energy and the vitality of the person
  • Address yourself to the potential of cellular consciousness, the intelligence inherent in every physical cell
  • Relaxed attention directs the flow of energy
  • O-KI Shiatsu School was established in 1998 by Bart Dierick. We gladly share 25 years of Shiatsu Training & Coaching with you!

The way of O-KI Shiatsu:

What is good for me ? What is good for my physical, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being today ?

To support our health we apply the five pillars:

  • Personalised diet (every person is different in his-her needs)
  • Conscious breathing discipline (pranayama as the base for conscious growth)
  • Correct body awareness and exercise & receiving regular body treatments
  • Harmony in thoughts & emotions (alignment heart and mind)
  • Practical spirituality (becoming aware and enlarging the presence of one’s soul in daily life)

If you find yourself in the above, we welcome you heartly to become a professional Shiatsu practitioner!
