Mariko’s interest in natural healing methods and reflexology was set when she was a little girl by receiving therapeutic massages from her grandmother and by meeting Japanese Chi Masters. Ever since, she has been witnessing the healing power of Traditional Chinese Medicines, Chi Gong, Acupuncture, Acupressure, Ayurveda, Reflexology and other natural healing methods through her own experiences.
Mariko always wished to work with her hands for people as she became more aware of the meaning behind of a Japanese word of “Treating/Healing People”. She is grateful to have found her life-work as a Facial Reflexologist. For the past 5 years, she has worked with a awards-received wellness facility in Europe and also served many guests from all over the world. She is currently working as an in-house Facial Reflexologist at one of the most respected alternative medicine centers in Hong Kong, Integrated Medicine Institute (IMI). She is also running her own private therapy studio in the heart of Hong Kong.
Mariko holds certificates of Sorensensistem™ Facial Re ex Therapy for Dementia, Alzheimer and Parkinson Patients as well as for Diabetes Patients. Between her works as a Facial Reflexologist, Mariko leads various Yoga classes as an instructor. Her daily ritual is practicing Qi Gong and playing crystal-singing bowls as moving meditations. She also enjoys heart-warming food, music, arts and traveling. She holds BA in Economics and Master in Entrepreneurship & Innovation. She has worked in the banking & insurance industry across Asia and Europe.
