Andrew Scott FwSS, MCSP.
I trained for 3 years in shiatsu & macrobiotics with British School of Shiatsu-Do under Ray Ridolfi at the The East West Centre in London and qualified 1990 with a Diploma in Shiatsu. This included training with Wataru Ohashi, one of early pioneers of shiatsu in the West and with Saul Goodman, a well known international teacher based in USA & Switzerland.
After further training at British School of Shiatsu-Do as a shiatsu teacher and in Traditional Chinese Medicine, I set up British School of Shiatsu-Do Liverpool in 1992. This later became the School Of Shiatsu Liverpool. I was a regular guest teacher at schools in Sheffield, Bedford & Nottingham. I closed my school in 2007 after I began my training as a physiotherapist.
I have been a member of Shiatsu Society UK from 1987 and was a member of Assessment panel and numerous subcommittees. Recently the Shiatsu Society has changed its membership categories and introduced a new category of Fellow (Fw) denoting a senior practitioner with more than 10 years experience. I qualified in On Site Massage with the Academy of On Site Massage in 2005.
I trained in physiotherapy at the University of Salford and qualified with a first class degree in 2010. I am a Chartered Physiotherapist registered with the Health & Care Professions Council. I have since completed further training in acupuncture.
In 2001 I published ‘Mind Your Body: Health, Vitality & Relaxation’, a book of Do-In exercises & meridian stretches which I co-wrote with Sarah Wale. This has now been republished (ISBN no.9780948603075) by Cornish Connection, which is linked to the Devon School of Shiatsu.

I am an ordained Zen Buddhist monk and a trainee teacher in the StoneWater Zen Sangha in Liverpool and have nearly twenty years experience in Zen meditation and in teaching meditation to beginners.
Zen has played a central role in my own wellbeing in recent years, particularly because of its compassionate approach and its emphasis on accepting what is rather than what we imagine we want.
For some clients it is appropriate to include meditation and mindfulness techniques as part of the treatment.
