‘This was a fantastic course, covering all the essentials for giving a Japanese Rejuvenating Facial. The course was well paced and Doe taught with clarity in a relaxed manner. I will definitely add this into my shiatsu practice and offer it as a standalone treatment too. Really enjoyable to both give and receive, and noticed the difference in my complexion as well. Highly recommended.’K. A. London
