Meredith Sands Keator is an honors graduate in both Shiatsu and Acupuncture from the Shiatsu School of Canada, one of only two North American schools that offer the most comprehensive training available outside of Japan.
For almost twenty years she has been an instructor of Somatic Stretch, a deep conditioning and realignment program created by her mother, Lilian Jarvis, who was a principal dancer with the National Ballet of Canada. Meredith teaches this technique to bodywork students and educators, as well as offering ongoing classes to the general public. Somatic Stretch® is an essential component to all her workshops, particularly in the area of self-care.
She has been a teacher of Eastern medical Theory, Shiatsu and western sciences at various schools in both Canada and the U.S., and has created and taught many programs in California and Canada.
From 1996 until she moved to California in 2002, Meredith ran a successful private practice in the Annex area of Toronto, Canada, catering largely to the film and television industry.
Her focus now is in Neural Resonance Therapy®, the weaving of Western Sciences with Eastern energy systems to present the same geometric precision and harmony as physicists are finding in the universe today.
Before following her families footsteps in the Healing Arts, Meredith was a Paris trained Chef, working on yachts, in chalets and restaurants throughout Europe and North America. Her focus on nutrition she now brings to clients wanting to work with their health in empowering, time tested ways that were always used in medicine prior to the advent of our current Western systems.
