K's Shiatsu & Bodywork
About this pro
I have a background in chiropractic. I practiced shiatsu and chiropractic during my years living in Japan. Many describe my therapeutic approach as "chiropractic massage" or "doctor's massage". (I will NOT perform "cracking" adjustments). My strength is in knowledge of Anatomy, physiology, body mechanics and medical studies through 4200 hours of chiropractic training from Australian University. I provide deep tissue, sports massage, relaxation, and rehabilitation with a shiatsu approach. I use oil sometimes but very minimal. Shiatsu is very versatile form of therapy from other oil based massages. Shiatsu allow me to provide a multi-directional approach to each individual muscle and joints. Where as with oil based massage, you are pretty much fixed in a position with face-down, or laying on your back. You do not have to worry about any draping, undressing. Shiatsu is the most casual way to get a massage. Applying a "good pressure, good pain" to your tissues. Helping people from pain. Educating clients that you don't need all the oil to feel better!
