In 1996, Ms. Visconti assisted in the initiation process of regulating shiatsu in Toronto with her teacher Kensen Saito by strategizing as well as preparing a binder of articles and promotional pieces she designed to educate the Toronto City Council as part of the pitch. Clients, other supporters of shiatsu, and students from the school participated as well, giving their testimonies to Toronto City Council regarding the many benefits of shiatsu. The pitch was successful and shiatsu was regulated shortly thereafter.
From 2001-2010 in Calgary, AB, she worked at the Holy Cross Centre as a Shiatsu Practitioner, sharing her knowledge of traditional shiatsu techniques with the people of Calgary. Presently, she practices Mobile Shiatsu in Calgary.
