Hi my name is Ehud Borovoy and I am a Shiatsu practitioner, licensed massage therapist, and personal trainer. I was born and raised in Israel and moved to the U.S. in 2007. My desire has always been to help others and is what has led me to pursue a profession that will allow me to assist those with a desire to improve their health and fitness and better understand how to manage their lifestyles in a positive manner. I have been a trainer since 1999, starting in my military service as a trainer for the police academy and eventually moving into a personal training role. I received my training in Shiatsu in 2003, adding my massage therapy licensure in 2013. I have a very extensive knowledge in anatomy and physiology coupled with a deep understanding of the human psyche due to my education in psychology.
Shiatsu is a method of bodywork art that goes back to 1912. This method originated in Japan and it is based on both western anatomy and physiology as well as the principles of Chinese medicine. Shiatsu is a Japanese word meaning "finger pressure". It is a "hands-on" therapy used both as a compliment to conventional medicine and as a preventative holistic therapy. Shiatsu practionioners perform Shiatsu tecniques by pressing with their thumbs, fingers, palms, elbows, knees, and feet on pressue points throughout the body to enhance the body's natural healing ability. This assists in correcting the imbalances of the body, maintainig and promoting health, and preventing the progression of disease. Pressure points are called "Tsubo" in Japanese and their location and the effect of Shiatsu on them is based on an understanding of modern Anatomy and Physiology. These points are effective in treating all body systems including the Integumentary, Muscular, Nervous, Circulatory, Skeletal, Endocrine, and Digestive.
