After studying the traditional techniques of shiatsu that closely adhered to the original form conceived by Tokujiro Namikoshi, Ms. Visconti then worked at the school clinic for 6 months to practice this healing art form. Following this practicum in Toronto, she went on to work with chronic pain patients at The Krispin Centre, a company that was associated with the Canadian Chronic Pain Association at the time.
In 1995, she participated in the 12th International Shiatsu Congress held in Toronto where the founder of shiatsu Tokujiro Namikoshi was honored. He was 92 years old when he traveled to Toronto for the special event. She designed and wrote the promotional material for the Congress.
When she was a member of the Shiatsu Diffusion Society (Ontario), Ms. Visconti designed, edited, wrote, conducted interviews, and produced the Thumbs Up for Shiatsu newsletter twice a year.
