The Hungarian Shiatsu Foundation (MASA) is a public benefit organization which was established in 1999. Its main aim is to make shiatsu well known in Hungary as well as providing high-level training in the International Shiatsu School Budapest (NSI).

Achieved results

In the past 15 years the foundation successfully established and provided the conditions for an effective shiatsu education in Hungary. More than 1500 participants completed our basic training and several hundreds attended the upper level courses of whom 70 up to the degree level. Several certified professionals have since become teachers. All of our courses are certified by GYEMSZI (National Institute for Quality- and Organizational Development in Healthcare and Medicines).

We regularly provide financial grant for our students in need, we organise supportive shiatsu courses for parents and grandparents.

To support the promotion of shiatsu and the related healing methods in Hungary we funded the publication of two books with DVD annexes, training materials and regular articles in the printed and online media.

We maintain good relationship with respected foreign shiatsu professionals who are returning guest teachers of our courses.

This year we participated the annual European Shiatsu Congress in Kiental for the third time.
