Jill Ayn Schneider, Director of Revolutionary Healer Publishing, LLC
Diagnosed with Malignant Cervical Cancer in February 1975, Jill refused a Hysterectomy and all Allopathic Medicine. Instead, she opted for a natural approach to Oriental Medicine, seeing significant improvement in just one month. Then, she followed up with a 6-month journey through Venezuela and Peru, consulting with shamans, living in a jungle, and hiking in the Andes.
Jill never told her family or owned this diagnosis. The cancer went into remission in August 1975. Jill’s miracle son, Aaron, put a daily focus on the reality of motherhood in 1977. Today, she is Nanny Ninja to her two grandgirls.
In 1981, Jill trained in Barefoot Shiatsu with Shizuko Yamamoto, the Japanese woman who brought this art to the West. Mr. Bo Diddley, the rock n’ roll legend, was her first Barefoot Shiatsu client.
In the 1990’s Jill went on to treat Robin Williams and Nathan Lane while filming The Bird Cage in Miami Beach. Sarah Vaughn, Horace Grant “Chicago Bulls,” and hundreds of others also appreciated Jill’s table massage and her unique Barefoot Shiatsu massage. She is only 5’2″ and has a 9.5 shoe size. At the age of 76, she is still practicing her art of Barefoot Shiatsu.
