Kai was born and raised in Japan and came to California to pursue her passion for surfing and physical therapy. Throughout childhood, she watched her father, who is a physical therapist, help heal patients, and thus yearned to become a therapist herself.
She obtained her Master’s degree in physical therapy from California State University, Northridge, and Doctorate degree from Western University of Health Sciences. Since graduation, she has taken numerous continuing education courses in orthopedic physical therapy. She is a certified Graston provider and has been training to get her certification in Pilates. She completed a year-long manual therapy course to perfect her hands-on techniques. She is currently studying for her Orthopedic Clinical Specialist exam. She teaches physical therapy students from Japan and also mentors physical therapist assistant students as a clinical instructor. Kai is a compassionate clinician and is constantly on the path of self-improvement.
In her free time, she enjoys surfing with her husband and playing with her cat.
