     Dip. Holistic Massage Therapy and Reflexology
     Certified Meridian Therapy and Myofascial Release Practitioner
     Small Animal Acupressure specialist


I was born in Japan, where holistic therapies have been practiced for many centuries, and those philosophies became a natural part of my life as I grew up.

After having lived in, traveled to, and explored many different parts of the world for more than 10 years, I decided to go deeper into the world of healing arts.

I am so grateful to have met masters of various fields through my interest and education; many of them had a major influence on me and opened the door to beginning my own practice. I earned a Dip. Holistic Massage Therapy and Reflexology, while also studying other complementary forms of energy and meridian balancing.

In addition to offering holistic therapies for people, I am a Certified Small Animal Acupressure specialist.  I have a life-long bond with animals, especially dogs, and my client list includes quite a few four-legged friends as well. Wonderful friends call me Dog woman :-)


Seeing my clients’ relaxed smiles during/after treatments means so much to me. I enjoy using various theories and techniques to create a unique modality suited to each person’s individual needs.

I look forward to welcoming you into the world of well-being
