After a decade working in the PR industry, Maki’s interest in aromatherapy was aroused when she fell in love with the scent of Ylang Ylang on a honeymoon trip to Bali. After the unhealthy lifestyle of stress, she found renewal in the power of aromatherapy, leading to her questioning the balance of work and relaxation. She graduated from the Holistic School Neal’s Yard Remedies IFA course and became a member of IFA. Upon moving from Tokyo to the coast village of Akiya, an hour southwest of the city, she now enjoys a life that is closer to the natural surroundings. Her salon, Stella Maris, opened in 2010, featuring her style of dynamic massage - fluid, soft and deep.
