Prior to enrolling at the New England School of Acupuncture, Naomi has accrued more than ten years of training and experience in Asian bodywork as a practitioner of the Japanese form of Shiatsu. Although classically trained, in the past decade of her practice, her treatments have evolved to form a distinctive style by incorporating skills learned in gymnastics, Thai and Amma massage styles, and reflexology.
