Aya Itakura

Sports & Remedial Massage Therapist / Muscle Therapist

Hi I’m Aya. I’m a passionate remedial massage and dry needling therapist with a particular interest in treating neck and shoulder pain and am skilled at treating all musculoskeletal injuries. 

 

I have over 15 years of teaching yoga and 5 years of remedial massage experience. 

 

During the process of recovery from my injuries as a competitive rower I discovered a number of bodywork methods and deepened my personal interest in anatomy, biomechanics, and individual varieties (both physical and mental). 

 

I believe our bodies have the power to heal themselves 

 

I am interested in finding the root cause of your pain and reintroducing whole body balance and function to experience joy in movement.

 

 

My legs can no longer take high impact exercise from old injuries but I enjoy weekly reformer pilates as well as my Yoga.
