Shiatsu & Massage Therapy Studio The Way of Wellness and Balance

 About Me

Yumi Asakura, LMT

I graduated from Finger Lakes School of Massage in Ithaca, NY in 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 have received a specialized training in pelvic alignment at BCT School in Tokyo.

I have a private practice in downtown Ithaca, and enjoy teaching Shiatsu, offering continuing education classes at my studio and other places.

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