Biography


 

Miyako moved to Canada from Japan when she was 20 years old. She has always had a strong interest in healing processes. She was raised by her mother, an artistic and spiritual woman, and her father, a successful eye surgeon in Japan. Together, her parents inspired her interests greatly. Miyako constantly strives to learn to be a better osteopathic manual practitioner. She travels around the world to further her studies in osteopathy, bringing that knowledge back to Toronto. Her treatment is gentle and light, yet precise and to the point. It brings the gravity force, which runs through our body, to the center as much as possible, to reduce its burden on our structures and systems. It also helps to coordinate and balance the autonomic nervous system and is essential for improving our digestion, respiration, bowel movement, menstrual cycle, hormones, sleeping pattern, and even our emotional and psychological states.
