Body Wisdom School Faculty
Shinzo was born in Japan and has practiced the art of oriental healing, Shiatsu, since he was a child. In addition to extensive Shiatsu training with some of the world’s foremost teachers, Shinzo has attained a black belt in the Japanese martial art of Aikido and numerous awards for Japanese calligraphy. He brings the spirit of the Japanese arts to his teaching style and his classes are famous for their emphasis on individualized high-quality instruction in an atmosphere of openness and trust.
He has taught Shiatsu internationally on land (Shiatsu & Shiatsu Yoga) and in water (Watsu & Energetic Aquatic Shiatsu) for more than 20 years.
Shinzo integrates the discipline, training and philosophy of Aikido with the practice of Shiatsu to create a full, rich healing experience in the massage context. He believes that every person is a perfect creation and therefore already the best healer and teacher for themselves and others.
Taking a class with Shinzo puts students into another world and gives them a completely different perspective on wellness and life at large.
Shinzo is also a certified continuing educator for NCBTMB, ATRI and AEA.
