Masako Doi is proud to provide her patients with a diverse array of healing solutions. She is a certified practitioner of shiatsu massage, acupuncture, and Traditional Chinese Medicine. A member of the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine of BC (CTCMA), Masako holds a diploma from the International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Vancouver (ICTCMV) and Canadian College of Shiatsu Therapy.
Born in Japan, Masako completed a bachelor’s in Fine Arts at the Kyoto University of Arts and Design. She came to Canada in 2004 and instantly fell in love with the landscape and people of the West Coast. While living on Salt Spring Island, Masako discovered the benefits of yoga and meditation. This sparked her journey to explore the divine connections between the mind and body. Her path eventually led her to Japanese shiatsu massage, which she has been practicing for the past six years.
Unfortunately, Masako developed debilitating neck pain caused by the physical nature of being a full-time shiatsu practitioner. She tried acupuncture and was amazed at how effective it was at curing her neck and shoulder pain. She knew she had to learn more about its healing abilities. Today, she is a Registered Acupuncturist and Registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner, and uses acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to complement her shiatsu approach.
Masako loves using her skills to help people on their journey to better health and wellbeing. She also believes in a holistic approach to healing and enjoys sharing her experiences and vast knowledge with her patients. She is fluent in English and Japanese.
Masako is currently working alongside a midwife and using acupuncture to help patients with issues regarding pregnancy, fertility, irregular menstruation, polycystic ovary syndrome, and more. She is also a firm believer in continuing education and has recently completed courses on facial acupuncture and human anatomy.
In her free time, she enjoys yoga, hiking, travelling, and creating culinary delights in the kitchen.
