Healing Arts Profile

Terry Niedzialek is an accomplished Shiatsu massage therapist, dancer, artist and teacher. As an approach to healing, she blends fitness with creative expression. Terry received certification in advanced Shiatsu courses and in Shiatsu teacher training at the International School of Shiatsu, and in Reiki 1 & 2. In addition, Terry has shared her performance art, dance and sculpture internationally from New York to Paris. This 20-year mind-body expression and healing journey has made Terry a massage therapist who is exceptionally sensitive to client energies and their healing process. Potent results with shiatsu alone includes: saving her 82-year-old father’s life in three minutes when he was suddenly unconscious, and hospice patients discharged from hospice care due to improvement.

In collaboration with the New Arts Program, Terry co-hosts a cable TV series that investigates spirituality and healing in the arts.
