Biography
After receiving an incredible esalen massage and the therapist suggested visiting the esalen institute in California to learn the massage technique. Rie felt the sheer joy of giving massage and knew this was what she wanted to do. Her journey to explore the wonders of therapies started then and she has been enjoying being a therapist since 2009. Rie originally trained in esalen bodywork, which is a meditative oil massage using wave-like long strokes & sensitive quality of touch. Rie can adjust the massage pressure from light to deep according to client’s needs, and is aware that deep tissue massage is not just about breaking up the knots. It is important to “listen” to the body as well, connecting deep with the body’s tissue to unwind the physical and emotional tension from within. As her enthusiasm expanded she also learned facial reflexology, Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Craniosacral therapy biodynamics. She enjoys supporting and witnessing the intelligence of healing power within us.
