Sky Blue Shiatsu  3947 Excelsior Blvd. St. Louis Park, MN 55416 phone: 612-929-5583

Shiatsu is a clothes-on Japanese style of Asian Bodywork Therapy based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Western Anatomy and Physiology. Techniques include pressing with palms and fingers, kneading, tapping, stretching, and range of motion exercises. The goal is to promote the flow of "Chi" or energy in the body, relax the muscles, and restore a feeling of well being.

Jill Alleyne, B.A., M.A., AOBTA Certified Asian Bodywork Therapist of Shiatsu since 1997. ACE and SS&C Cert. Personal Trainer and Post-rehab Exercise Specialist since 2004. My theoretical approach is to help people find the best way to deal with stress, physical pain and weakness, and limited mobility. I draw on my varied 25 year background and training in internal martial arts, movement and dance training, Qi Gong, Reiki, personal training, group exercise and post-rehab exercise therapy.  

Kelly Sanches, B.A., Diplomate of Asian Bodywork Therapy NCCAOM, AOBTA Certified Practitioner since 1997. My theoretical  approach is to help clients to be more present in their bodies.  I provide a safe and nurturing environment.  I use gentle techniques, along with a traditional Asian medical approach to help clients with choices regarding diet, exercise and relaxation, along with meridian stretching.

 We both attended the Minnesota Center for Shiatsu Study's 500 hour program in 1996, and are current AOBTA (American Organization of Bodywork Therapies of Asia) members. We carry professional and liability insurance, and have current CPR training. Jill and Kelly both have continuing training in Therapeutic Bodywork Techniques, and Jill for Personal Training, and Post-rehab Exercise.
