About Takami

I am delighted to introduce myself as a devoted body worker.  

There have been many lucky encounters in my life and Rolfing was absolutely one of the most important and luckiest.  It changed my life.  Rolfing is my vocation, has never been boring but always home to return where I can integrate what I create and explore.


I am living in Germany since 2002 including several back and forth between Germany and Japan.  Bitte verzeihen Sie mir, dass ich immer noch auf Englisch schreibe.  Das Leben ist zu kurz um Deutsch zu lernen. 


I am a yoga teacher (2007), Rolfer and Rolf Movement Practitioner (2011), Jikiden Reiki teacher (2012), Advanced Rolfer (2017), Somatic Experiencing practitioner and homeopath (2019).


Throughout my life, alternative medicines have been always my interests.  As a result, my daughter--my dear guinea pig--is as fit and sound as a fiddle and has never needed to see a single doctor for ill-health since she was born in 2000.

The founder Dr. Ida Rolf (1896-1979), one of the first female Ph.D as a biochemist in our history, stood firm in her position as a scientist and called Rolfing as pure science.  It was the time when homeopathic remedies or herbs were replaced with modern medicines and homeopathy departments in universities disappeared accordingly.  In such circumstances Dr. Rolf was enthusiastically reading homeopathic Materia Medica for her clients and for her own. When I knew Dr. Rolf's "hobby" was similar to mine, I was delighted by such a coincidence.


Once Dr. Rolf said Rolfing was similar to shamanism. This is my position as a Rolfer; I accompany and witness your journey to return to your own nature.  I am just praying.  You were born as a perfect life and are still perfect after all these years.  

Rolfing is not my treatment. This is your awakening process by cultivating your bodily sentience to integrate yourself as life. Improvement happens when you awaken and release the old pattern you are attached to unnecessarily.  I will assist you so that you will meet your blueprint as a perfect form of yours often forgotten and put aside. 


During the ten series, some of you might experience emotional catastrophe or trauma release.  These are the outburst of repressed energy embedded in connective tissues.  When the repressed and frozen energy is going to find a way out, we can just let it happen in a safe and sound container I provide. In such cases Somatic Experiencing, SSP, or energy work can alter the session.  


My intention is always how to support you—with varieties of soft, deep, intensive, subtle or even hands-off touch—according to your needs. Respecting your edge, I choose what seems to be most appropriate to you; some of you may need intensive anatomical adjustments and others may need removal of visceral tension, nervous settlement. trauma release or energetic flow, etc.  


I’m looking forward to working with you.
