I have been a massage therapist since 2000, and am certified as a Structural Integration Therapist in Kinesis Myofascial Integration (KMI). I have advanced therapeutic training in a variety of techniques including myofascial release, visceral manipulation, trigger point, neuromuscular therapy, Seitai Shiatsu, Tuina, and Thai massage. In 2014, I completed a 135-hour training program in Complete Decongestive Therapy through the Norton School of Lymphatic Therapy providing lymphedema patients with lymphedema management through manual lymph drainage and complete decongestive therapy.
With this wide range of training and experience, I am able to tailor integrated approaches to clients seeking life long physical health and emotional well-being.
I enjoy combining Eastern and Western techniques to relieve pain, optimize range of motion, and create a sense of well-being and deep relaxation.
I am committed to enhancing the quality of life for all through an open mind, deep compassion, and directed touch.
I am bilingual in Japanese and English and have been able to provide interpretation/translation services in a wide variety of subjects ranging from anatomy/bodywork to wildlife biology and conservation to children's theater. I hope to see you soon!
