Back to Presenters

The foundation of my work, Shiatsu-Anma, is a particular style of Japanese medical acupressure developed by DoAnn T. Kaneko, L.Ac, PhD. Dr Kaneko learned Anma from his parents and was formally trained in shiatsu and acupuncture at Toyo Acupuncture College in Japan. I served as assistant instructor with Dr. Kaneko in Santa Monica, California, prior to becoming a Certified Instructor in Shiatsu-Anma. I subsequently taught his style of Shiatsu-Anma at CenterPoint in Minneapolis, under the direction of Cari-Pelava Johnson.

While in Minneapolis, I joined a small study group in the kitchen of Duc Kieu, a Vietnamese physician and Buddhist. Dr. Duc was trained traditionally, apprenticing with his father, who apprenticed with his father, and so on, through several generations. Our group of five met every Friday with Dr. Duc for 3 years.

My formal training and advanced degree was taken at The American Academy of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AAAOM) in Roseville, Minnesota. I was a member of the inaugural class, and had the privilege of studying under some of China's brightest exports.
