Shiho Horikoshi | Tokyo | JAPAN

Philippines Volunteer Outreach | Volunteer Ambassador

Shiho Horikoshi | Liddle Kidz Foundation Global AmbassadorShiho Horikoshi is a Certified Infant Massage Teacher with specialized training in pediatric massage therapy, massage for pediatric autism spectrum disorders, massage for pediatric trauma, and Kidz in Contact - Healthy Touch Initiative for Children, and is currently completing her masters degree in Health Psychology in Tokyo, Japan.

She is currently working with the Liddle Kidz Foundation Japan as volunteer coordinator and outreach event organizer.

Shiho Horikoshi | Liddle Kidz Foundation Global AmbassadorEver since she was an adolescent, Shiho has been aware of the present condition of women and children in developing countries around the globe, and has had the desire to bring care to them.  She has taken the initiative to learn the Khmer language, and spent time volunteering with orphaned and abandoned children throughout Cambodia.

During her time in Cambodia she used a variety of play therapy and development activities to help provide much needed stimulation for the children in the orphanage.

During her studies at J.F Oberlin University her professor Dr. Hajime Yamaguchi introduced her to Tina Allen and the Liddle Kidz Foundation.  Through her studies with the Liddle kIdz Foundation she has learned the importance of touch therapy and has changed her focus to study touch therapy, mindfulness and has begun conducting research as to touch therapy effectiveness in improving bonding between parents and children.

Shiho Horikoshi | Liddle Kidz Foundation Global AmbassadorIn Japan, Shiho has taken notice of the lack of physical contact between the Japanese people.  With this in mind, she has taken her educational background with the Liddle Kidz Foundation to provide parental workshops and lectures so that parents can learn the many benefits of nurturing touch.

Her parental workshop include benefits of touch therapy, evidence to support the benefits, hands on techniques and approaches to help families with the child's care.

Shiho is passionate about children's health, promotes ethical fashion, fair trade, and organic farming.  In her free time she enjoys spending time with friends eating at cool restaurants, listening to music and volunteering to make a difference in the world.

Why do you feel you would be an asset to the Liddle Kidz Foundation volunteer team?

This is a very big step for me to join the Liddle Kidz Foundation Global Outreach Team.  It is my first big step in recognizing my dream of participating in such an event.  I see the value in touch therapy and believe all chidlren should have this type of care.   I want to do my part to bring happiness to the children of the world.

Why would you like to participate in this outreach event?

It is my dream to bring nurturing touch to children and staff throughout the world. As the first Japanese representative to join the Liddle Kidz Foundation Global Ambassador outreach team, I am honored and excited to share our work with fellow Japanese health care therapist so they can learn more about the possibilities of using touch therapy in healthcare settings abroad.
