More about Yoshi
Yoshi is originally from Japan. She used to be a national level athletic runner and started getting and giving sport massage through her elite athletic training at the age of 15. Unfortunately she had delicate legs and got various stress injuries due to hard training and retired early. At university, she studied Human Health Sciences because she wanted to know various human's aspects such as psychological, behavioural, environmental and physioanatomical. Although she was away from the study, she decided to come back to it at mid 20. She chose to be an acupuncturist and become an athletic trainer in Japan at first. But the world of traditional acupuncture made her eyes open because that is not just Chinese/Eastern medicine but Chinese/Eastern philosophy including Yin-Yang & Five Elements which does not have the end.
In private, she is mother of teenage and tween boys. They love their mum's massage and want acupuncture (tailored for children) when they are sick because they know it helps a lot. Not just her own children, she has worked for children from babies to the young sport elites.
