Naoko developed a special interest in holistic therapies while working for a major credit card company in Japan. Receiving aromatherapy massage or Shiatsu after a busy schedule helped her greatly to relieve physical tension and stress.
Since moving to England in 1999, Naoko has had extensive training in both western and eastern therapies such as Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Japanese Shiatsu, Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. She regularly attends courses and workshops to satisfy her never-ending interest as well as to deepen her knowledge and skills.
Naoko integrates eastern and western therapy disciplines in her sessions, tailor making the best treatment for each individual client. She always treats the person as a whole, looking at all the possible aspects 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.
