Japanese Shiatsu Therapist

Yuki Murata

Yuki Murata was born in Hokkaido, Japan. After volunteering with Mother Theresa in Calcutta during the mid 1990′s, Yuki was inspired to learn a technique for healing and improving wellbeing through physical contact. She returned to Japan to study Shiatsu Therapy and Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Ogihara Shiatsu School in Hokkaido. After completing her qualification Yuki worked at the Ogihara Clinic to develop her skills.

Later Yuki continued her studies in Australia where she completed a diploma of Shiatsu and Oriental Therapies at the Australian Shiatsu College, Melbourne. Yuki founded Bridge Road Shiatsu Clinic in 1998 which later evolved into Four Seasons Wellness Centre in 2005.

Yuki believes mental and physical stress can create physical blockages leading to illness, discomfort and pain. Shiatsu stimulates energy flow in the body, releasing blockages and improving wellbeing.

Those who receive treatment on a regular bases will not only experience a sense of wellness on a physical level, but also benefit from a deep sense of calmness and mental clarity. Being a holistic therapy, it aims to address ones physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
