I have been practicing Zen Shiatsu for more than 15 years and continue to be inspired to support my clients’ health and well-being. 

Shiatsu is based on Chinese Medicine, a complete system based on energy channels in the body. Shiatsu is a Japanese healing art that combines touch with this 5,000 year old year old medicine.

In 1998 I completed my 3 year Shiatsu training in Bristol, England and in 2000 I became a Licensed Massage Therapist in Seattle , Washington. In Seattle I had a private practice and taught Shiatsu at the Northwest Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and at Bastyr University.  In 2008 I started my Shiatsu private practice in downtown  Portland and have been at The Good Life Medicine Center since July 2015.

I have had advanced Shiatsu training with Pauline Sasaki and Clifford Andrews and have completed a 2 year Post Graduate course and a 2 year Shiatsu Teacher Training with The Shiatsu College of the UK.  Since 2011 I have been a Shiatsu Teaching Assistant and Shiatsu Clinic Supervisor at The Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. Since 2008 I have been a Shiatsu Practitioner at the Immune Enhancement Project, a research clinic where Shiatsu provides supportive therapy for clients withHIV/AIDS, Cancer, Diabetes, Multiple Sclerosis, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Hepatitis C and other immune related disorders. 

At the Good Life Medicine Center I enjoy working with a diverse group of clients. 

With compassion, skill and a love of the healing arts I create a treatment program for you that is enjoyable, beneficial and sustainable. Shiatsu treatments are given on a thick futon mat and clients wear loose comfortable clothing. 

I look forward to supporting your health with Shiatsu !
