About Richard Lee

I had suffered from anxiety ever since I was in elementary school and the condition worsened during middle school. However, I was fortunate to have made a very sympathetic friend during junior high school and he would relieve my anxiety with some massage. The simple gestures made a very strong impression. As a result, massage has always been part of my life on the periphery. In my quest to pursue shiatsu massage, I found one of the most important things to be the intention of providing a humble service.

I have been working as a certified massage therapist in California since 2011. I am a trained shiatsu anma specialist, where I extensively learned about acupuncture points, traditional Chinese medicine theory, reflexology, and many protocols for various ailments. I learned Thomas Myer’s meridian train technique for sports massage/deep tissue massage. Another part of my training was dealing with trauma using a gentle Japanese acupressure technique. I also learned reflexology and essential oil massage. I always try to find effective and comfortable therapy for all my patients.
