Melbourne Shiatsu Space Hire         

43 Rose St, Fitzroy 3065

2 room practice offering room hire for bodyworkers and healthcare practitioners. There is also the possibility to use one, both or the entire space for workshops or group events.

Melbourne Shiatsu was established by Dan Frankel in Fitzroy in 2013. The community of Melbourne Shiatsu is a very special one.  People from all walks of life come to Melbourne Shiatsu so they can receive therapeutic experiences that can range from pain relief, a good cry, somewhere to feel safe to speak openly and without judgment or just to relax and reset.  It is very important that this space continues to provide a safe and inclusive culture. 



Can I have time before and after to set up?

The space hire time is inclusive of any time you require to set up and pack up before and after your session. You are responsible for cleaning up any spills or mess, and we require the room to be returned to the same condition as when you arrived. Please consider this when making your booking.


How much does it cost?

Full day (8:30am-9:30pm) $150 incl GST 

Half day  (8am-2:30pm or 2:30pm-10pm) $90 incl GST

For regular and or multi-day options please email to discuss.

Do I get to use the Melbourne Shiatsu point of sale?

Unless otherwise agreed it is expected that each practitioner bring their own point of sale device or at least have a Square Up account to log into as well as their own online Gift cards link if the practitioner wants people to be able to redeem gift cards. For the new practitioner that doesn't have their own POS here is a link that will give $1000 in free processing through Square up.

Can I rent it out long term or on a regular basis?

Yes,  availability dependent, the rooms can be hired on a regular basis.  Please feel free to discuss this with Dan. 

Do I have to be GST registered?

No, since each practitioner is dealing with their own point of sale, then GST registration is dependent on individual circumstances.

Is there HICAPS for use available?

No, at the point of writing this list there is not. Demand may change this so please feel free to discuss. Until then each practitioner will be expected to provide receipts to their clients with their provider numbers so the client can claim online.

What is your cancellation policy?

A minimum of 48 hours notice is required if you wish to cancel a casual room hire, otherwise the full hire fee applies.  Long term agreements will be done by contract.  They will work as regular deductions and it is the responsibility of the renter to pay their regular instalments to keep the space.

What about covid?

Practitioners are expected to have their own Covid safe plan and abide by the buildings covid safe practices. It is also expected that all practitioners who use Melbourne Shiatsu follow what is mandated by the state around their circumstances and make an active effort not to cause a covid outbreak at Melbourne Shiatsu. Rules may vary based on registration and or qualifications of each practitioner but at the point of writing this, as far as is understood, practitioners considered clinical who don't have mask exemptions are expected to wear masks and must be vaccinated, clients are not expected to wear masks or be vaccinated unless the practitioner is considered personal care but then the practitioner is only suggested to where a mask but must be vaccinated.  The rules change regularly and can be confusing.  It is the responsibility of the practitioner to know what the rules are for them.
