I was born in Japan and hold a bachelor degree in Pharmacy with a national pharmaceutical license. Upon moving to New Zealand in 1998, I found that Kiwi’s often look for more natural therapies. Already having knowledge of orthodox medicine, I subsequently undertook a Diploma in Aromatherapy and a Diploma in Therapeutic Massage. Knowledge gained through these initial qualifications lead me to pursue a Diploma in Clinical Neuromuscular Therapy, which I completed at New Zealand College of Massage. I have been working as a therapist since 2004. During this period, I decided to obtain an additional skill in Traditional Chinese Acupuncture. I completed a Post graduate Diploma of Health Science in Acupuncture at Auckland University of Technology. I have developed a special interest in treating infertility and fertility (pregnancy) with acupuncture. I am also interested in treatment of sports injury with acupuncture and neuromuscular treatment.
I am the mother of two sons. When I had my first son, I was 37 years old, so I understand fertility issues related to age. Furthermore, my first son was born prematurely and spent some time in a special care unit. My passion is to help people who have infertility and fertility issues and to support their goals.
I enjoy sports such as running, swimming and cycling. This helps me to understand sports peoples’ issues and I enjoy supporting them towards their goals.
My clinic vision revolves around respecting and understanding each client’s situation and creating personalised treatments for each client.
