After moving to Australia, while Kaori juggled caring for her young family and working as an optical dispenser, she started studying to become a remedial massage therapist. She was small but had strong arms and hands so she thought she could be a good therapist. She could have also become a good jockey if she wasn’t allergic to horses!
It didn’t take long until she became interested in treating people with cancer after becoming a qualified Remedial Massage therapist, so then she started training to become an Oncology Massage Therapist. Around this time, Kaori started realising how effective the gentle massage treatment can be and continued training with Craniosacral therapy.
In 2017 Kaori completed training of Lymphoedema treatment at the Dr Vodder School International to become a qualified Lymphoedema practitioner so that she can look after clients more clinically. And now she has been training with Physiokey the Non-Invasive Interactive Neurostimulation device to manage clients’ pain from neural aspect.
Kaori has a thirst for knowledge and she continuously throws new knowledge and techniques into the mix to take out suitable and effective techniques to treat clients’ issues.
Outside of therapist work Kaori enjoys recreational running. Every year she runs Mother’s day classic and Bridge to Brisbane with her daughters. Kaori loves the family involvement and thinks of her clients as extended family. That’s how closely she cares for each client.
