The International School of Shiatsu has moved from its Doylestown location to make a new home at Plumstead Crossings, in Pipersville.
The newly renovated center features a 2,200-square-foot classroom that is furnished with Swedish maple wood flooring. The large, modern space will allow for expanded classes in Nia dance, yoga, meditation, tai chi and qigong. In true Japanese tradition, no shoes will be worn on the floor; participants are encouraged to bring socks or floor slippers.
The International School of Shiatsu was founded in 1977. Its mission is to train, nurture and support students while developing their skills to become practitioners of shiatsu, shin tai, lymph drainage and traditional Thai massage, as well as to provide the experience of advanced bodywork modalities to the general public—Zen Day Community Shiatsu Clinic is offered on the first and third Saturdays of each month.
“We are excited for what the next chapter of our story will be, and the possibilities that present themselves with this new space,” says Shirley Scranta, owner and director. Scranta graduated from the Practitioner Program in 1996.
