Masako Doi is a certified and experienced practitioner of shiatsu massage, acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Masako was born in Osaka, Japan and completed her Fine Arts degree at Kyoto University of Arts and Design. After arriving in Canada in 2004, it wasn't long before Masako fell in love with the landscape and people of the B.C. coast and knew that she had found her new home.
While living on Salt Spring Island, Masako discovered the benefits of yoga and mediation. Her experiences there started her on a lifelong journey exploring the divine connections between the mind and body. This path has led her to Japanese shiatsu massage, which after two years of full time study, she has practiced for six years in the Vancouver area. Eventually, Masako began to experience a debilitating neck pain caused by the physical nature of being a full time shiatsu practitioner. She was amazed at how effective acupuncture was for healing her neck and shoulder pain and knew that she must learn more about its healing potential. Today, she is a fully trained and experienced acupuncturist and has found her experience with acupuncture to compliment her approach to shiatsu.
As she has deepened her understanding of the relationship between mind and body, Masako has come to favour a holistic approach to healing. This concept of the human body as an interconnected whole - instead of a series of separate systems - is at the centre of traditional Chinese medicine.
TCM is a system of treatment utilizing the healing effects of herbs and Masako's own experience with its healing power led her to formally study it and integrate it into her own healing practice. The ability to utilize her knowledge and skills in shiatsu, acupuncture and TCM, means that Masako is able to provide many healing solutions to her clients.Now with her own clinic hours, the exploration of the connection between the mind and body continues as she uses her skills and experience to help people on their journey to better health and well-being.
