A passionate and dedicated shiatsu practitioner, teacher and advocate, Dorothy has worked as a volunteer for STAA since it began in 1987.
Dorothy is one of the founders of shiatsu in Melbourne. She first experienced shiatsu while studying dance in New York in the early 80s.
Dorothy trained at the Ohashi School in New York before returning to Melbourne and setting up practice.
In 1985 she set up the Australian Shiatsu College in partnership with Adrian Donkers.
Dorothy left the college in 1987 to create more time for herself and her family. Since 1995 she has practised in Croydon, Victoria, and for several years taught as a senior instructor at Shiatsu Australia.
Over the years Dorothy has worked on setting up STAA's Code of Standards & Ethics, the Continuing Professional Education program (as well as much more), and is currently focussed on the Mentoring Program and Research projects.
