About Masako Takahashi

imageI am a massage therapist licensed by the state of Arizona. I have also received further massage training in Australia and Japan. I have over twelve years of experience in reflexology and have developed an expansive knowledge of the whole body and understand the importance of connecting one's mind to its body's response. 

My approach to massage focuses on the individual, listening to their voice while utilizing Eastern and Western modalities. My style is helpful for clients who want to relieve stress, reduce anxiety, and reduce common physical problems such as low back pain, shoulder pain, and tight muscles brought on by one’s lifestyle. Reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of our body's systems. I offer Chi Nei Tsang, Shiatsu, Deep Tissue Massage, Connective Tissue Massage, Swedish Massage, Sports Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Myofascial Release, Perinatal Massage, Facial Lifting Massage and Reflexology. I am looking forward to seeing you soon.
