Heart of Zen


Heart of Zen is the premier Zen shiatsu practice in Leelanau County, MI. Located in downtown Suttons Bay, Heart of Zen offers various therapeutic treatments including Zen shiatsu (acupressure) treatment, foot tuina (Chinese reflexology), zazen (meditation), qigong (gentle movement) and Seiki-soho (Kishi-style treatment) to bring about a true wellness experience.


Feeling healthy and strong? Heart of Zen recommends monthly shiatsu treatments to continue to support the wellness habits you have incorporated into your life.

Experiencing a recent injury that has left you with a sprain, strain, or ache? Heart of Zen recommends shiatsu and/or tuina as soon as possible to support quick and complete healing.

Dealing with a mental or physical stress that leaves you in pain or feeling unable to enjoy your day the way you want to? Heart of Zen recommends weekly shiatsu treatments until you notice a positive change, daily zazen, and appropriate qigong.

Expressions of health include appropriate breath, diet, movement, and rest so that you can function to your fullest. Our goal is to help you achieve and maintain these expressions of health in your life, even when confronted with stress or injury, through Zen shiatsu therapy and by incorporating the principles of Chinese medicine. We have found that with regular shiatsu, proper nutrition and appropriate movement, many ailments such as chronic back and neck pain, stress, digestive, and sleep issues can be resolved.
