About Naoko

Naoko 2

Having worked for a major credit card company in Japan, Naoko experienced the impact of work stress and its negative influence on the physical and emotional health.
She developed a special interest in holistic therapies and began her study for various diplomas since moving to England in 1999.

Her initial interest was Aromatherapy and Reflexology. Then the rediscovery of Eastern therapies also led her to study Japanese Shiatsu & Oriental medicine for 3 years. By learning and practicing the oriental philosophy and bodywork she experienced the true sense of healing herself.

The fascination towards holistic therapies has never faded since, and she is continuously attending workshops and developing various styles of advanced therapy techniques.
She integrates eastern and western therapy techniques in her session, tailor making the best treatment for each individual client. Her discipline is always treating the person as a whole, looking at all the possible aspects -whether it’s physical or emotional -which might have caused the unwanted symptoms. Whatever the needs, Naoko will make sure her client feels relaxed, revitalized and well balanced after the treatment.
