What We Do

Shiatsu training at Tao Shiatsu Toronto involves the whole person and is seen as a growth process rather than a mere technical training. It is currently the only dedicated English language Shiatsu school in Toronto accredited by the FQM.

The size of the learning groups are small so that personal attention is given to each student and the teacher can foster the individual characteristics of each trainee. Students learn to develop their sensitivity to others as well as discovering and respecting their own limits. The core of the training involves lots of hands-on work leaving you feeling relaxed and replenished as you practice giving and receiving.


Tao Shiatsu Therapy is a treatment that you can accept and understand from the bottom of your heart.

Alex Pereklita

Alex, or ‘Tao-n,” the head monk of Wada Ji Temple in Toronto, was born in Toronto, Canada, and was interested in Asian culture and martial arts from childhood. After graduating from University of Toronto and working as a research engineer in the nuclear industry, he journeyed to Japan with the intent to study the Japanese arts of Aikido, Iaido, and Chado (tea ceremony). After injuring his knee and not having much success in treating it with other forms of therapy, he discovered Master Endo and Tao Shiatsu. From then on he focused his studies on the healing arts of Tao Shiatsu & Tao Sangha. Currently he lives and works as a Tao Shiatsu Instructor and Therapist, giving workshops and classes in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and abroad, and practices Buddhist chanting regularly for the benefit of all beings. Alex’s serious dedication to making the world a better place is gently combined with his creative spirit and playful heart.
Kenchi Mogi

Kenchi Mogi

Kenchi Mogi was born and raised in Japan. When he was young, he struggled with Asthma, and later at school, he played hockey for a National champion team. These experiences made him curious about health and the systems of the body. His journey led him to Canada, where in 2006 he encountered Tao Shiatsu, which explained his questions and opened a path. For more than a decade since he has practised Shiatsu and Nembutsu. In 2016 he received the ceremony to become a monk, shaved his ponytail of 20 years, and took the vow to “be responsible to all beings.” He has a geeky side though enjoying computers and video-editing and loves manga.

Study Tao Shiatsu

The Tao Shiatsu Toronto program is based on the International Tao Shiatsu Society training that is following the teaching of Ryokyu Endo, founder of Tao Shiatsu. Complimentary courses are provided by Tao Shiatsu Toronto’s experienced teachers and resource staff.

Tao Shiatsu is energy medicine. Vital life energy or “KI” is in constant movement. Pain and disease result from blockages in the movement of Ki. Tao Shiatsu stimulates your body’s internal healing power by releasing stagnant and toxic Ki, and the restored flow allows for stress, pain and disease to be relieved.
