Ai Tauber, IFPA, LMT, developer and founder of Essence dot


Trained in Japan, I have been practicing massage in Japan and the USA for the past 25 years. My training is from the Clare Maxwell-Hudson School of Massage (London, UK) and IFPA (International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists) Clinical Aromatherapy.


I have worked at the Swissotel in Osaka, as well as in several clinical settings, salons, and as a massage instructor. My core is, and always will be, Japanese. I believe that everyone needs personalized treatment and that I can help you with the healing power of touch. My name is Ai,  which in Japanese means "Love".
