Meet Your Rolfer™

Kay Akahane

*Certified Rolfing® Practitioner

*Board Certified Structural Integrator (BCSI)

*Licensed Massage therapist (NYS)

Hello, my name is Kay.  I am a Licensed Massage Therapist (NYS), certified in Rolfing® Structural integration and also the first member of Board Certified Structural Integrator (BCSI) in Tokyo.   

 

I have been a healthcare provider in Tokyo since 2000.  I began my career as a relaxation therapist (Body and Facial Aromatherapist & Reflexologist), then became a Licensed Massage Therapist (NYS) after graduating from The Swedish Institute in NYC.

 

As a massage therapist, I have attempted to improve postural alignment and release chronic patterns of tension through conventional healing massage and issue-focused treatment.  I believe that the next step to achieve my clients' goals for permanent change is through Rolfing® Structural Integration, which is a form of holistic bodywork that helps the client realize their full human potential. I became a Rolfer™ in September 2018.

Training in Rolfing in Boulder, Colorado has shown me that new possibilities can emerge when mindful intentionality is combined with giving the body the unconditional permission,  space, and freedom it needs to re-align itself.
