Izzy Shafey, Therapist and facilitator 


With a natural attraction towards all things physical mixed with years of meditation experience, Izzy balances his innate inclination to keep moving with the serenity of stillness and finds these qualities at their peak while practicing Zenthai Shiatsu . 

With a diverse background in mixed martial arts, sports, and Yoga, firsthand experience has shaped Izzy’s understanding of the amazing feats the human body is capable of as well as how it feels when things are out of balance and need healing attention. Bringing full awareness to every session and every touch, he aims to bring vitality and tranquillity to every treatment.

After graduating as a qualified Zenthai Shiatsu Therapist in Australia, Izzy returned to Canada and brought with him his new found skill, art and passion. 


Izzy currently works out of the Cormorant Street Holistic health center where he offers one on one treatments as well as creates and organizes community events, classes and workshops.
