Hi my name is Sal (short for Salvatore.) I am from Italy, many years ago someone gave me a book about Shiatsu, this is how I got involved in this ancient healing art.
I am a fully qualified Shiatsu Therapist, I studied Shiatsu in London with internationally reknowned teachers such as: Soul Goodman, Chris Jarmey, Ray Ridolfi, Wataru Ohashi. I strongly believe that “Energy is everything and Everything is Energy!“
Touching is healing and deep inside each one of us there is a little child that needs to be loved, cared for, nourished and touched, for this I consider touching a very serious and responsible task, through touching I can reach the very inner, spiritual, emotional side of people and where true healing can take place.
Shiatsu is a Japanese word meaning finger pressure. The theoretical foundations of Shiatsu are rooted in Chinese medicine. Shiatsu is a holistic therapy, based on the same principles as acupuncture, but using the hands instead of needles. However very few people know that Shiatsu is not only finger pressure, it feeds the Nervous system, as well as rebalancing the flow of Energy (Ki) - drawing more of it into the needy parts of the body, or dispersing stagnation so that Ki can flow freely.

“To Whom It May Concern:
I have been touring for about 22 years with many different bands (Dave Matthews, Tracy Chapman, Primus, etc etc...)
The masseuse I had today for The Weepies show at The State Room in SLC, Danielle, was perhaps one of the best I have ever had.
Everything from her disposition to her skills. My entire band and crew adored her.
I felt it was important to tell how amazing this woman was, and how she brightened our day.
