About Birute

I am a Iokai Shiatsu therapist and acupuncturist living and practicing in Amsterdam Noord.

In 2004 I moved to Amsterdam from my hometown Vilnius (Lithuania). Here I was fortunate to meet shiatsu masters Eloise Sewell and Kazunori Sasaki. I graduated in 2012 at the Iokai Shiatsu school in Amsterdam and have been actively practising Shiatsu  since, In 2016 I started teaching at the school as well.

My passion for Oriental Medicine continued and desiring to deepen my knowledge and understanding of holistic healing I completed HBO Western Medicine basics and TCM/Acupuncture training in Shenzhou Open University, Amsterdam. I am currently undertaking a year long specialisation in Toyohari Japanese acupuncture.
