My introduction to Shiatsu started in 1985, with classes by Robert Jaruslawski and Shizuko Yamamoto. They offered me my talents for energetic bodywork an showed me a new way to communicate.
In 1991 I started a professional Shiatsu training in Kiental in the Swiss Alps. These events a new way of my life, that is still present and ongoing today. I taught Shiatsu courses within the Germany Adult education system. Later I developed and taught private lectures and classes about various energetic bodywork techniques. In conjunction with the workshops, I offered individual treatments. Inspired by continued education seminars, I began to combine Shiatsu with other methods of bodywork and to create my own style.
In 2000 I opened the school for TAO Footreflexology Massage.
In 2005 I founded the practice for AI CHI Japanese Art of massage and the school for AI CHI body- and energy work.
”My practice is a combination of knowledge, which I have received from many teachers and my own acquired personal experiences.”
