About Me
My name is Mala John Aeto.  I am a Certified Hanna Somatics Educator (CHSE) and was one of the participants trained by Thomas Hanna, Ph.D., in the first HSE training in 1990.   I was also trained and certified by William 'Dub' Leigh in Bodytherapy and by Anat Baniel in the Anat Baniel Method and in ABM for Children with Special Needs.
I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development from the University of Hawaii at Manoa where I also attended graduate school on a National Institutes of Health (NIH) fellowship in cross-cultural psychology.
I have been practicing HSE since 1990, primarily in Hawaii and  Portland, Oregon and more recently in Austin, Texas. My work focuses on chronic muscular pain, post-surgery trauma, balance and gait issues, and children with special needs. 
I currently reside in Portland, Oregon and may be reached for appointments at (808) 371-6540 or via email at [email protected]
