Because Shiatsu treatments have not been possible to safely administer in the standard format, I have introduced two offerings that can be done remotely. 

1. Remote Shiatsu - this is essentially like a standard treatment, except the contact is maintained with consciousness instead of physical contact. Click here to learn more.

2. Self Healing Sessions - we meet on a video call, and based on your complaints and my assessment, I will guide you through self healing techniques from my diverse toolkit. Self Healing Sessions may include breathing techniques, meditation, stretches, and strength training. 

Shiatsu's unique healing power is that it puts you deeply in touch with yourself. This is "a healing" in-and-of-itself -- but it is also the very thing that makes Shiatsu effective for relieving your symptoms. For when we are at home in mind, body, and spirit, our healing potential is maximized.

My practice is grounded in the principles of asian medicine and western anatomy. Shiatsu treatments are 

energetic in nature while also directly addressing the physical body.

If you are looking for caring, attentive, and skilled help, you have come to the right place.

Shiatsu's scope of benefits includes:


  • Mobility

  • Postural Alignment

  • Comfort


  • Sleep

  • Digestion

  • Resistance to stress


  • Ability to get through difficult feelings

  • Concentration and clarity

  • Relief from anxiety and depression

Because Shiatsu has such a wide scope of benefits, it is excellent for treating  people suffering from complex problems, such as physical pain that causes emotional pain (or vice versa), "mystery" pain, and people who have not found relief through standard treatment measures.

Shiatsu is also a great adjunct therapy for many other therapies and practices, such as psychotherapy, physical therapy, yoga, and pilates.

A Shiatsu treatment is about you -- not your symptoms or your problems. ​I work with you, as a whole person, to help you get relief from your symptoms and problems. Read more about the healing partnership here.
