Veronica W. Robinson, LMBT, AOBTA®-CP
Hi, there! I’m Veronica and I am the owner and founder of the Shiatsu Wellness Center. My business is located on West Vliet Street in the heart of Milwaukee. I am a certified and licensed wellness practitioner who helps people manage chronic pain and other conditions through alternative health and wellness practices. I am an advocate of complementing alternative healthcare practices with conventional healthcare when needed, as this combination offers the most robust opportunities for overall good health and positive well-being. As primary means of connecting with my client’s wellness goals, I offer health coaching, shiatsu, massage, and energy work. I also offer a variety of other supplemental services. Importantly, my focus is working with people who suffer from post-stroke and other chronic neurological conditions, such as the pervasive pain and debilitating fatigue of fibromyalgia and ME-CFS. My practice is woman-centric and I offer services for women throughout every stage of their lifecycle, including the prenatal period. Although there is no indisputable way to measure a person’s perception of pain or feelings of fatigue, nor to fully comprehend how a chronic condition or neurological disorder impacts them, person’s feeling of pain, I offer services that will support your overall healing goals.
As a 100% client-centered practitioner, I honor and dignify the people I work with by providing a restful, non-judgmental space to receive beneficial and therapeutic complementary or alternative care. Decision making around health and wellness is unique and personal. For some conditions, such as with fibromyalgia, lasting and permanent relief is not easily had and might not be achieved. At the Shiatsu Wellness Center, I do not “fix” people because I don’t see them as damaged. Instead, I intend that each person I work with feels heard, understood, safe, and respected in relation to the wellness goals they want to pursue. Although I work primarily with women, I also work with care takers and support partners of people suffering with fibromyalgia, regardless of their gender. Below are a few relevant facts about my training and background:
- Licensed bodywork therapist/massage therapist in the States of Wisconsin and the States of Illinois.
- AOBTA(TM)-certified practitioner of Zen Shiatsu
- Graduate of Zen Shiatsu Chicago
- Health coach trained through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition
- Reiki master (Usui)
- Trained in Ohashi/Ohashiatsu method
- NGH-certified consulting hypnotist

In my spare time, I enjoy a host of creative activities both inside my home and out and can often be found taking photographs of nature or sitting in the park listening to the birds. However, I have a special love for all things food and culinary arts. If I’m not in yard, you’ll probably find me in a moving meditation, singing and cooking in my warm kitchen.
