Shinohara is a warm, caring, and
compassionate mother and therapist. She has been working closely with children and their parents throughout
her life as a teacher, mother, volunteer, and CBP. Throughout her life, Shizuka
was always looking for something that fulfills her but never found it until
BodyTalk. BodyTalk enabled her to accept and love herself, and become ready to
fully give herself to help others.
Shizuka graduated from Ehime University
with an elementary education degree in 1982. After she graduated, she worked as
an elementary school teacher for three years until she married and became a
mother of her daughter and son. As her children entered elementary school, she
started to be involved with volunteer storytelling groups and read stories for
children at public libraries, kindergartens, and elementary schools for 11
years. She also taught Japanese tea ceremony and flower arrangement to children
and adults in the community. Through many of those activities, she found her
passion in working with children.
For 21 years she was primarily a
mother, therefore when her children were gone to college, she had to discover
who she is as a person. Then, she was introduced to BodyTalk. She immediately
fell in love with BodyTalk, and she became CBP in 2009. Since then she has
taken Module 3, BodyTalk Access for Animals, Module 4/7, Module 6, Mindscape,
and Chinese Medicine for BodyTalkers.
BodyTalk provided the missing
piece in her life. Through BodyTalk she was able to develop better
mother-daughter relationships with her mother, and with her daughter. She feels
that it has helped her grow not only as a mother but also as a daughter (in her
relationship with her mother). As a part of health care for her mother who is
over 90 years old, she applies BodyTalk. She is learning how BodyTalk can be
effective not only for children, but also in nursing home settings.
She is fascinated by the
effectiveness of BodyTalk, and enjoys learning about the human body, mind, and
spirit, and its innate ability to heal itself. BodyTalk made her life more
lively and cheerful than ever. From her own experiences she values importance
of children and caregiver’s relationships. She strongly feels that an ideal
environment for children to be raised is the environment where the caregiver is
in balance. She feels blessed to be able to support parents and children
through BodyTalk in creating such environments for children.
