Jenny Dorrington

Jenny began her journey into Oriental Therapies in 1980 with a trip to China, visiting hospitals where acupuncture and herbal medicine were used extensively.

Since that experience Jenny has continued to study shiatsu, acupuncture and related Oriental Therpies, and continues today in private practice.

Jenny is as passionate today about Shiatsu as she was over 40 years ago, when she began her journey, still enjoying running workshops, and is committed to enhancing her knowledge, skills and understanding the needs of her patients.

For 30 years Jenny was co-director of the Australian Shiatsu College, an Educator, and has travelled to Japan to study on many occasions and studied with many international teachers.
