Message from Michiko

“I feel tired.”, “I can’t sleep.”, “I don’t have any appetite.”, “My hands and feet are cold”… You’re not sick, but you don’t feel healthy either. In Oriental medicine, we call this state mi-byo (pre-disease.) We believe it is very important to treat people before they get sick. As well as offering pain relief, Shiatsu massage and acupuncture treat mi-byo by releasing body tension, fixing misalignments, balancing the nervous system and strengthening the immune system. I hope more people will turn to Shiatsu massage and acupuncture to help them lead healthier and happier lives.

Our clients say…


Michiko is a highly skilled and conscientious shiatsu therapist. She is a caring and sensitive person who focuses on the health and well-being of her clients. She has excellent technique and I would highly recommend her to anyone who desires a harmonious and balanced life.
