For me it is very much the power of two. What we see in each other is a reflection of ourselves. What we know is both more and less than we perceive.
In 1993 I became certified as a Human Factors Engineer obtaining Shiatsu certification in 1999. I have spent most of my life as a Human Factors Engineer in Nuclear Power, Telecom and Health Care.
I was introduced to shiatsu through dance. I began dancing at the age of 4, starting with ballet and ending with ballroom. After dancing competitively for years, I became injured and had stopped dancing. A friend insisted that I try shiatsu and gave me a gift certificate for a session with a local practitioner.
Boy, was I skeptical!!! To my surprise, it worked. I went on to dance professionally.
Years later, a minor injury and less than perfect surgeries, led to bi-lateral hip replacements. Shiatsu, muscle activation therapy, physical therapy and structural integration enabled me to walk, and later to return to competitive dance.
Shiatsu has been an important part of my life for almost 20 years, and I hope to share what I have learned to help you on your journey. I incorporate my training in anatomy/physiology, neuromuscular massage, muscle activation therapy, and digital frictioning in my practice, though I only offer shiatsu, soma-energetics, and dance training/conditioning in my client sessions.
Shiatsu and Sound Therapy*--The Theory Behind the Practice
"Both modern physics and the philosophy of the ancient mystics come to the same conclusions, that the world is in constant dynamic change and transformation, and all the phenomena of the world are interconnected and interdependent.
The fact that science today, at least at a subatomic level, confirms that it is impossible to separate the observer from the observed phenomenon, takes us back to one of the fundamental principles of Oriental Philosophy, where the structure and the phenomena observed in nature are nothing other than the creation of our mind which measures and classifies."
