Satomi graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy here in Victoria in 2017, though she had an interest in massage therapy long before starting the program. Satomi is very aware of how physical and emotional stress can affect a person’s wellbeing, whether the root cause be due to injury, postural dysfunction, trauma, or anxiety. One of the main reasons why she is so dedicated to practicing massage therapy is because it gives her the ability to reduce a client’s daily stressors by creating a safe, relaxing treatment space and using a therapeutic touch to decrease pain and anxiety, increase body awareness, and promote restful sleep.
Satomi uses a variety of treatment techniques including general Swedish, myofascial release, isolytic release, trigger point therapy, and passive range of motion and stretching. She is very compassionate, and listens attentively to the needs of her clients so that she can plan her treatments to achieve the greatest benefit for each individual.
