What is it that I do?
Work: As an energetic healing practitioner, I help you
rediscover areas in your body that remember your wholeness,
joy, peace. Such a journey enables one to release areas
of holding lovingly.
sessions are about one hour long, on a massage table fully
clothed, and the work is noninvasive. I have witnessed amazing
experiences with this work because it creates a space that
helps the receiver feel safe enough to let go. Experiences
can range from a sense of well being at the end of a session
to an emotional catharsis. Clients have told me that this
work helps with the side effects of chemotherapy such as
nausea and other flu-like symptoms, as well as working through
emotional/spiritual issues. See testimonials below.
Work: Are You Abusing Yourself? Check in with yourself
for a moment. Do you feel rushed all day? Do you sacrifice
meals, or sleep, on a regular basis? Do you drink too much
coffee? Feel stressed? Body always hurts? Too many people
demanding too much? Experiencing emotional upheaval but
don't have time to be with it?
kind to yourself. Take the time to unwind your body and
mind. Release muscle tension and toxins, improve joint mobility
and restore energy reserves with a massage. The nervous
system relaxes and circulation increases, which in turn
enhances immune function. Sleep quality is improved and
incorporate a variety of energetic and body modalities to
provide a therapeutic experience for your body, mind and
spirit in a traditionally draped session. I find that energy
work combined with massage is most effective for overall
sense of well being. See testimonials below.

interested in Reiki classes, energy medicine classes or
workshops on self care and spirit/heart/body explorations.
We can create together a ceremony to honor and mark beginnings,
endings, and auspicious occasions. For example, I have had
requests for ceremonies to mark farewells--the passing of
beloveds (human and animals), loss of a home, a marriage,
a childhood memory. And I have had requests for celebratory
ceremonies for new homes, new relationships, new jobs, new
life paths and birthdays. Any moment is sacred if it is
meaningful to you.
Healing: I am also available for distant healing work
and guided meditations/life path envisioning by phone (805-708-5164).

I customize the certificates for special occasions.

"My husband, Kim, was placed on hospice care and that
is when we had the great good fortune to meet Lillian Kurosaka.
Her peaceful demeanor and spiritual outlook was a wonderful
match for Kim. He used to tell me that he didn't know how
Reiki worked, but that he felt so peaceful and calm after
the sessions. I have to admit that Kim was not always open
to alternative treatment methods; but, he trusted Lillian
and himself and opened up to whatever came. When a person
is faced with a life-threatening illness, as Kim was, it
is wonderful to have a competent, loving person willing
to share their knowledge and expertise to help alleviate
one's suffering. Lillian did this."
am a psychotherapist and part of my work is to deal with
issues of family crises, including the consequences of litigous
divorce situations. I have always benefited from massage,
and found Lillian several years ago. My seeking Lillian's
talents far exceeded what I sought to accomplish. In addition
to the physical relief gained from the massage, I found
that Lillian's attunement to the energy quotient in my body,
mind and spirit, provided an invaluable balance. Every time
I have a session with her, I leave feeling powerful, serene
and grounded. I have the opportunity to work with many talented
professionals in all disciplines, and consider Lillian to
be at the top of the list of valuable resources. She is
a treasure, gifted in her art and a catalyst to healthy

the time she came to visit me in the hospital in 2001 after
radical surgery for cancer through subsequent years of healing
and transformation, Lillian has been a powerful force of
regeneration and restoration in my life. She knows a wide
range of healing arts, from energy work and guided meditation
to hands-on massage. Over the years, I have needed different
types of help from her, and Lillian always instinctively
knows what my body, mind and spirit require. As an amputee,
the profound asymmetry of my body often requires physical
intervention in order to restore balance and sooth overworked
muscles. I am deeply grateful to Lillian for her gifted
hands, fingers, elbows, forearms and voice, all of which
bring me to center and wholeness."
was important for me during chemotherapy to conduct my own
healing process while my body was compromised and under
assault. My sessions with Lillian were invaluable. The palpable
exchange of healing energy boosted my health immeasurably.
I could feel currents of energy flow into me from her. She
could "see" injurious bacteria and pull them from
my body. She's an extraordinary, powerful intuitive healer."
known Lillian Kurosaka for over fifteen years. I've received
energy work from her for about the last nine years. Lillian
has an innate talent, hers is a gift that cannot be learned.
She is able to work as a pure channel, with no ego involved,
to allow healing energy to pass through her and directly
into the client, where it is needed the most. She is the
best kind of therapist, someone who offers her services
not because she wants the attention, but simply because
it is her gift and she is willing to share it. The healing
that comes from that place, of course, is powerful. I have
turned to Lillian for help with both emotional and physical
problems, and been astounded at the results. When the chips
are down, as they sometimes are, I call Lillian."

to help open you to yourself with both love and wonder;
what better gift can there be? I recommend her without reservation."
