​​"Shiatsu, massage and acupuncture have changed my life in so many ways and after years of being a skeptic, I am proud to be a part of the revival of ancient alternative medicines.  Massage and Asian Bodywork have so much to offer in preventative medicine and pain management. I find Shiatsu just as relaxing as conventional massage, yet it's the most grounding and therapeutic massage modality I have come across.  I also offer East/West Massage for those who may be interested in something on the table that incorporates both the acupressure points and Swedish/Deep Tissue massage.  Hope you'll take the journey to empower your body's natural wisdom of self-healing."

Tom MacIntosh

Mindful Leadership Coach Tom MacIntosh brings over 30 years of experience leading and developing teams, as well as extensive training in psychology, together with a commitment to calling on every individual’s highest potential, or as he calls it, their inner light.
His mission is to restore places and people to a state of clarity and calm so that they can approach uncertainty and volatility with more compassion, precision and creativity. Tom’s personal experience with depression brought on by a toxic workplace culture initiated him into a lifelong practice of mindfulness, meditation and relationship to self. 

​It is this merging of the inner world of self-awareness with the outer world of business and organizational success that he has found to be the tipping point for better relationships and high-performance. He believes that our capacity to stay curious about ourselves and others is directly correlated to the degree to which we can ignite meaningful transformation.

This one-hour community meditation includes a 20 - 30 minute meditation, followed by a discussion about the week’s theme and then closes with a brief metta meditation. This is for all experience levels and spiritual beliefs.

You can also book an individual meditation session with Tom by selecting the Book Now button, above.
