My name is Massimo Martino and I am 45. I spent my first 20 years between Canton Solothurn and Ticino. Then I moved to Fribourg, where I studied Economics before returning to Ticino, where I started my working experience. Then, in 2010, I moved to Zürich, where an exciting new life has begun.

So far as Economist I felt happy and well, despite that I realized that I could have more from life: my body and my soul were asking for more care. The imperative need to “feel” and “hear” my body took place and, keeping active and calm, I had the chance to take distance from everyday routine and feel my potentialities and opportunities.

The Shiatsu method caught immediately my attention because is a practical method that brings the life energy (Ki in Japanese) to freely flow into our body showing the way to the balance.
This was the beginning of my new journey, which continued choosing the school: the Ko Schule in Zürich. The life of Master Hiroshi Nozaki, the founder of the school, inspired me with his open, simple and generous approach, wisely applied by the teachers, caught immediately my attention.
This commitment I employ every day with joy and an open heart to those people I can accompany as shiatsu therapist.
