Student Massage Therapist
I am a certified massage therapist and also a 2nd year student at Southern Alberta Institute of Massage (SAIM), where I have learned a variety of techniques such as General Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Lymphatic Drainage, Myofascial Release Techniques, Trigger Point, TMJ and Prenatal Massage.
I was born and grew up in Japan until I moved to Canada in 2013. I decided to pursue massage therapy as a choice to have an unique and rewarding career.
My career interests include the role of massage in stress management, finding balance through therapeutic touch and integrating components of health and wellness for a variety of body types, individuals, and situations.
I am eager to meet you and to help you to design the treatment that you need to attain your goals.
