Licensed Shiatsu Therapist
Bruce Cary has been practicing the Namikoshi style of Shiatsu Therapy since 1985 after graduating from the Aisen Shiatsu School where he received his training from his Sensei, Fumihiko Indei. Under his watchful eye, Bruce developed a sensitivity and strength that has allowed him to treat a variety of conditions with knowledge and compassion. After training with his Sensei in Honolulu, Hawaii for two years, he was called upon to establish a Shiatsu clinic on the Island of Maui. He was given the opportunity to work in many different settings including a Chiropractic office for 10 years. This then led him to become the owner and Spa Director of Makena Massage at a large resort facility in South Maui while maintaining his practice in Wailuku, where he is currently located.
Along with extensive training in Shiatsu Therapy, Bruce brings to each session an ability to draw upon other modalities such as Somatic Movement Education, Thai Medical Massage, Foot Reflexology and Hawaiian Lomi Lomi. While each session is different, the Namikoshi style of Shiatsu treats the entire body while concentrating on the client’s specific complaint.
How Shiatsu Works
Shiatsu translated means “finger pressure.” It is a form of deep pressure point therapy involving the application of thumb pressure to specific acupuncture points throughout the body. Fundamentally Shiatsu is quite simple.
It relies on the proper application of carefully judged pressure to specific points throughout the entire body to eliminate fatigue and stimulate the body’s own natural self – curative abilities. Pressure is applied primarily with the thumb.
