AIM Holistic Practitioners
Jyun Shimizu – D.Ac , EAMP
Jyun was born and raised in Osaka, Japan in a family devoted to achieving optimal health through natural remedies. Natural healing is truly in his blood! He has learned a great deal about natural health from his family, who adopted a healthy lifestyle to reverse his grandfather’s high blood pressure. Dr. Shimizu learned the healing powers of nature at a very young age, creating his own remedies from plants and nourishing his body with whole organic foods.
He received a bachelor’s of science degree in engineering from Kansai University in Japan, and then came to the United States to pursue a master’s degree in architectural engineering from University of Washington. During this time, his young daughter was having severe issues with food allergies, with no solutions coming from western medicine. This is when he redirected his focus and realized his true path was to help others achieve true wellness using natural methods. He graduated from Bastyr University in 1997 with a master’s degree in Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture. He also received a doctorate in acupuncture from Japan. Since then he has also earned numerous certificates in other healing modalities including homeopathy, Autonomic Response Testing (ART), Allergy Elimination (NAET), Natural Healing System (NHS) and Bioenergetic Medicine.
After receiving his degrees, he started his own successful acupuncture clinic that soon grew into four clinics that he managed in the Pierce County area. It was during this time that Dr. Shimizu realized he had lost direct contact with patients and did not wish to be solely in a managerial role. He wanted to directly impact his patients, form relationships, and be a formative part in their journey to complete health. He closed the clinics and opened his “golden temple” of healing. Aim Center for Natural Healing was opened in 2014 and has grown into a sacred space for those to come heal their bodies, minds, and souls using both the ancient healing knowledge of our ancestors as well as the latest techniques in modern natural medicine. Working through layers of toxicity, chemical and hormonal imbalances, and using your body’s innate wisdom, Dr. Shimizu will restore you to your best health in a gentle, natural way.
Susan Adamson – RN, Certified BodyTalk Practitioner
Susan has worked for 27 years as a Registered Nurse with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. Her varied nursing career has spanned from the University of Washington Hospital’s NICU, to Seattle King County Public Health Department as a Public Health Nurse, to Overlake Hospital as an outpatient Lactation Nurse, and most recently to the Renton School District as a School Nurse. Although she enjoyed and learned from all of her nursing jobs, she began to realize that the traditional nursing role was creating an imbalance in her energetic body and taking a toll on her health. She became extremely fatigued and developed chronic severe low back pain. Susan’s “free-time” became her health-care-appointment-time. Over a 6-8 year period she visited numerous doctors, naturopaths, massage therapists, physical therapists, acupuncturists and many other specialized health care providers. She spent thousands of dollars on treatments and supplements each year, with little relief.
After being introduced to energy healing in the form of QiGong, she began to see some hope of regaining her life back. She began to slow down and listen to her body. She learned to “welcome her symptoms” as a window into her healing journey. She logged at least 60 hours of QiGong class time that first year as well as weekly yoga classes, and became a Reiki practitioner, offering Reiki treatments to friends and family as well as treating herself. A few months later, she heard about BodyTalk through a good friend, and at first was curious and skeptical. At her first session she was amazed at the depth and scope of the practice – she became hooked! Within a year she fulfilled all her training (80+ hours) and 50 practice sessions, and became a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner. Susan’s background as a Registered Nurse is a perfect foundation for this energy work. The beauty and power in BodyTalk is that we are the gatekeepers of our own health. We just need to relearn how to listen to what our body is really telling us.

Nancy Tung – RN
Nancy has been in the health profession for almost 40 years, ranging from medical/surgical nursing, neonatal/pediatric Intensive Care nursing, to Anesthesia and Outpatient Surgery nursing. Not able to find solutions for her 10 long years of chronic fatigue, anxiety, brain fog, and unrelenting neck and back pain in her mid-40s, she decided to take her health into her own hands.
She immersed herself in energy healing modalities and received extensive certifications such as Jin Shin Do Body-Mind Acupressure, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Mental Field Therapy (MFT), Autonomic Response Testing (ART), Yiren Medical Qigong, Visualization and Meditation, Family and Medical Constellation and Brainspotting.
Nancy’s Holistic Wellness Coaching Programs are rooted in her own personal journey of full recovery and much beyond- becoming the happiest and healthiest person she knows. Life is too short to be wasted, so she has dedicated herself to helping others to achieve their highest potential of wellness!
If living a life being happy and healthy is important to you,
If you desire to transform chronic illnesses and pain to letting your life blossom,
If you have tried everything and nothing has worked to your satisfaction,
Give yourself a treat by scheduling a “Comprehensive Assessment and Strategy” session with Nancy.
Remember, just one simple decision can change the trajectory of your life!

Satomi Norris – LMP
In June of 2012, Satomi graduated from Renton Technical College’s Massage Therapy Practitioner program, a course which included over 1,000 hours of didactic and practical hands on training. In school she studied numerous massage modalities, including Swedish Massage, Myofascial Release, Reflexology, Trigger Point Therapy, and Acupressure, as well as Hot Stone Massage. Since graduating, she has worked for a massage clinic, a spa, and a chiropractor’s clinic. Additionally, in the summer of 2013, she visited Japan and completed the beginner and intermediate level courses of a style of Japanese massage called Zen Shiatsu. This was taught by a very well-known practitioner and teacher named Kimura. Satomi was both humbled and honored upon receiving from Mr. Kimura the certificates for his Zen Shiatsu courses. She has had and continue to have unique opportunities to improve her ability to help people through massage. She has learned that each patient is unique, and provides an opportunity for her to discover the most effective massage modalities for them. Satomi also realizes that a patient’s physical condition is sometimes affected by what troubles the mind, heart and soul. In realizing this, her goal of finding and releasing tight muscles, reducing pain, and improving range of motion, is complimented by her desire to calm a troubled mind, to soothe an aching heart, and to heal a distressed soul with her hands.
