The European Shiatsu Federation
The European Shiatsu Federation the "ESF" is non-party, nondenominational and non profit-making.
The main objective of the ESF is to advance Shiatsu as a healing therapy throughout Europe and to promote high standards of professional practice.
It aims to establish throughout Europe the legal right to practice Shiatsu as an independent, self-regulating health-care method, legally available as a first choice treatment option to the public. Also to establish, and to revise from time to time, procedures for the mutual recognition of professional practitioners, teachers and schools between member associations.
