What are the benefits of taking the course as the Distance Combined Intensive?

As an Intensive Student, your Diploma is completed in 12 months and you are ready to start your new career!

The assignments have deadlines. You are required to study at a set pace and attend Online Seminars twice weekly. This ensures that you are on track, keeping up, and that any questions you have are answered quickly. Your Online is Instructor Led!

If you are prone to procrastination or need assistance with your study habits, the Distance Combined forces you to keep up with your assignments. Remember consistent Instructor support is provided even when you are not in  classroom.

You will become familiar with the students taking the course before you get practical/onsite studies. Many already forge friendships before meeting in person.

As an Intensive Student, you are onsite for your practical training skills labs and required hours of Supervised Shiatsu Practical student clinic onsite in our Student Clinic Spa. You will enter your Case Studies confident that your skills are current and fresh.
