Born and raised in Japan, Ai has been living in Ashland since 2001 and is the mother of two children. She is a violinist and a member of the Rogue Valley Symphony. Graduating from the Ashland Institute of Massage, Ai became a licensed massage therapist in 2013. Having a mother with Alzheimer's disease who became incapacitated at a fairly young age influenced her new path into the manual touch therapy. Firmly believing in the healing power of touch and massage therapy, Ai was motivated her to start a volunteer massage therapy program with SART (Sexual Assault Response Teams) in 2014.
Ai specializes in deep-tissue massage and is also a certified Myoskeletal Therapist. She is primarily interested in bringing balance and alignment to the body through careful observation and communication with a client. She has been employed at Southern Oregon Sports & Spine since April 2014 as a chiropractor's assistant, helping patients with a wide range of injuries, pains, and rehabilitation challenges.
