Zen Shiatsu Chicago Faculty: Olga Chwa

Zen Shiatsu Massage School In Chicago

Olga Chwa


Olga Chwa has been passionate about the body and natural health practices for decades, teaching yoga since 2000. She graduated from the massage therapy program at the Arizona School for Integrative Studies in 2008. She then spent several months studying at an Ayurvedic Clinic in Upper Dharamshala, India and by 2014, wound up in Ohio and became licensed by the State Medical Board to practice massage therapy, growing a successful business for many years.

In the last few years, she has officially evolved to be a massage educator, helping folks across the country pass the MBLEx® exam and become licensed therapists (massageexamtutor.com). She pairs her knowledge of the human body with lifelong international experience and earlier work as an ESL teacher, translator, writer, editor and corporate marketer to fast-track people’s learning and test-taking strategy.

Olga also teaches self-care classes for therapists and others, serves clients one-on-one, as well as leads workshops (olgachwa.com) and continuing education for LMTS on one of her favorite topics: unwinding the jaw!
