BUT… THE Recordings are available HERE.

I loved the Shiatsu Congress
in Vienna 4 years ago.
It’s a pity I cannot come to Amsterdam due to Covid, so it’s amazing that I can be there whilst being in my own living room.
Thank you! – Caroline

A special Congress

Coming Friday, we expect that two years of preparations will reach its culmination with a beautiful shiatsu congress. We are all in a roller coaster ride with unprecedented situations full of setbacks. Nevertheless, we have decided to push through. We hope to kick off a special ESC 2020 with an amazing programme.

Big screens

These times ask for exeptional precautions however. For example: Due to the local corona distancing measures, we will need to have video registration and big screen projectors in our (large) rooms to accomodate a proper view for everyone.

A livestream for you

It’s a pity that not everyone of the shiatsu community could make it to Amsterdam. But here is the good news : since we’re bringing in costly cameras and specialists anyway, we are going to provide a livestream to allow you watching from you own home, dojo or wherever you are.

3 days of unique content

Yes, it’s 3 full days. Just pick one or two sessions, or block your whole weekend. You can reserve your ticket here. Only for 47 EUR, or 37 EUR if you are really quick, or even for free when you have a ticket for ESC2020 (see Event FAQ). Enjoy shiatsu with us.
