What We Do

Tao Shiatsu training involves the whole person and is seen as a growth process rather than a mere technical training. It is currently the only dedicated English language Shiatsu school in Toronto accredited by the FQM.

The size of the learning groups are small so that personal attention is given to each student and the teacher can foster the individual characteristics of each trainee. Students learn to develop their sensitivity to others as well as discovering and respecting their own limits. The core of the training involves lots of hands-on work leaving you feeling relaxed and replenished as you practice giving and receiving.


Tao Shiatsu Therapy is a treatment that you can accept and understand from the bottom of your heart.

Lawrence Lefcort

Lawrence is a certified Tao Shiatsu teacher and practitioner. Born and raised in Montreal, Québec, he spent much of his twenties living and traveling around south and southeast Asia, studying yoga and meditation with teachers in India, Burma, Sri Lanka and China. Although never drawn to Japan, he developed a passion for Shiatsu, and by some good fortune encountered Ryokyu Endo, founder of the International Tao Shiatsu Society, at a workshop in Montreal.As an unwavering seeker of truth, Lawrence felt an immediate resonance and connection with the teachings of Master Endo and Mahayana Buddhism. He’s never looked back after that. A long-time Buddhist practitioner, Lawrence incorporates a deep heart and strong meditative foundation into his therapeutic practice. He is an accredited member of the Fédération Québecoise des Massothérapeutes (F.Q.M.).

Study Tao Shiatsu

The Tao Shiatsu Toronto program is based on the International Tao Shiatsu Society training that is following the teaching of Ryokyu Endo, founder of Tao Shiatsu. Complimentary courses are provided by Tao Shiatsu Toronto’s experienced teachers and resource staff.

Tao Shiatsu is energy medicine. Vital life energy or “KI” is in constant movement. Pain and disease result from blockages in the movement of Ki. Tao Shiatsu stimulates your body’s internal healing power by releasing stagnant and toxic Ki, and the restored flow allows for stress, pain and disease to be relieved.
