Shiatsu & Massage Therapy Studio

About Me

Yumi Asakura, LMT

I graduated from Finger Lakes School Massage in the summer of 2000 and have been practicing professionally since 2001. After graduating from FLSM, I continued studying with various Shiatsu teachers and schools mostly in Japan as well as in UK and USA. I completed the certification program at Iokai in Tokyo (Zen Shiatsu founder, Master Masunaga's school) in 2003, and most recently have received training in pelvic alignment at BCT School in Tokyo. I have a private practice in downtown Ithaca, and enjoy teaching Shiatsu at Finger Lakes School of Massage and offering continuing education classes at my studio.

"Yumi Asakura is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a continuing education Approved Provider and is also sponsored by NCBTMB to teach New York LMT's continuing education that is accepted by the state of New York for license renewal."image
