Hello, My name is Hisako Oba. I was born and raised in Japan. As I was growing up, my mother used to give me shiatsu massage for various health conditions. So, it was natural thing to do when I had my children. And I've been so grateful for this family tradition.
After working with preschool children for 20 years, I became more serious about taking care of myself and studied holistic approach to health at the Acupressure Institute in Berkeley. It was an invaluable transforming experience and helped me in all aspects of my life.
During the training, I worked as a volunteer acupressurist at the Pain Management Clinic in Berkeley. There, I had such a rewarding experience of making people feel better and happy.
Since then, I have been drawn to this field of bodywork and eager to share this ancient method of health care. I believe in the benefits of massage and bodywork therapy to promote individual well being and, in a bigger scale, creating a better world.
When I am not working, I exercise yoga, qigong and meditation. I also love cooking, walking, playing music, listening and watching birds, plants and all other things in the natural environment.
