In this class, you will have the opportunity to explore Dr. Kaneko’s comprehensive approach to healing, encompassing both the DoAnn Long Form of Anma and the Short Form of Shiatsu. Our goal is to balance energy blockages and alleviate a wide range of issues including common complaints like sports injuries, occupational injuries, the effects of aging, internal organ malfunctions, and stress-related factors. We also focus on addressing back and hip stiffness stemming from poor postural management, often associated with activities such as prolonged computer use. Our approach is entirely non-invasive, avoiding the need for medications or injections. Instead, we harness the body’s natural healing abilities through precise pressure point techniques and meridian therapy, effectively reducing pain and enhancing your range of motion (R.O.M).

Throughout the course, you will acquire a diverse set of techniques and methods tailored to various body areas. Our structured curriculum unfolds in a sequence that maximizes the potential of major pressure points and meridians. These techniques can be effectively applied in four different postures, offering a versatile toolkit for holistic healing.

It’s important to note that the improvement in muscle tone is a direct result of your dedication to regular practice of the prescribed exercises. Your active involvement in this process is key to achieving the best results.

Advanced Shiatsu Anma – Immune Boosting

This class will cover Dr. Kaneko’s DoAnn Long Form of Anma and Short Form of Shiatsu and is a way to balance the energy blockages. You will learn various techniques and effective methods for different areas of the body following a structured sequence that utilizes major pressure points and meridians, all within 2 different postures.

Abdominal pressure and manipulative massage techniques enhance the immune system by activating the small intestine’s defense mechanisms and spleen as well as the lymphatic system and solar plexus. Furthermore, it’s essential to nurture and maintain two primary energy sources: the prenatal energy associated with the Kidney and the postnatal energy of the Stomach and Spleen. These energy reservoirs are integral to overall well-being and vitality. Additionally, pressure therapy applied along the spine combined with deep breathing techniques, is essential for regulating the autonomic nervous system, promoting deep relaxation and enhancing the immune system.

Advanced Shiatsu Anma
Stress Related Issues, Anxiety & Insomnia

Stress, a widespread challenge, can be toxic when it transforms into a severe, chronic condition. It can often lead to insomnia and anxiety, affecting many individuals. To navigate this universal challenge, it’s crucial to establish powerful stress management techniques.

Our long and short form approach offers one of the most natural, safe, and effective methods. During the application of Shiatsu Anma therapy for stress management pressure points, we combine therapeutic abdominal breathing instead of chest breathing focusing on the activation of three of the seven chakras to awaken their essence or vital force, mental power and, spirit.

This technique efficiently tackles stress by harmonizing the connection between the body and mind. This harmonization empowers individuals to rediscover their equilibrium. This approach serves as a gateway to unlocking the body’s inner pharmacy, granting access to essential brain chemistry elements, including natural tranquilizers like serotonin as well as regulating hormones such as melatonin and oxytocin.

Advanced Shiatsu Anma – Head, Neck & Shoulders

You will learn techniques and methods to effectively address and alleviate common headaches, pain and stiffness of the shoulders and neck due to poor postural management such as computer related issues, sports injuries, occupational injuries, aging, internal organ malfunction and stress related factors. This healing method uses one’s natural healing power though pressure points and meridians in 4 different position utilizing major pressure points and meridians in 3 different postures. Shiatsu and anma therapy is an excellent, alternative, safe and natural healing method which can improve pain and R.O.M.

We have 4 goals which are improving proper alignment, increasing muscle flexibility, increasing circulation and strengthening muscle tone. Improvement in muscle tone can only occur through the consistent practice of the exercises recommended for home use by the patient.

 

Shoten Shiatsu Advanced Classes

This form of therapy concentrates on shiatsu points and anma techniques to specific areas effectively treating pain conditions and is called Shoten Shiatsu Anma which means “Focused Finger Pressure.” Unlike many other forms of shiatsu, Shoten Shiatsu Anma focuses on and stays within very small areas for an extended amount of time before possibly moving to other areas. This concentrated effort is part of the key to its success.

Shoten Shiatsu Anma was developed through decades of practice providing tens of thousands of treatments. It is a branch of Kaneko Shiatsu Anma based upon the teaching of Dr. DoAnn Tsuneo Kaneko. The techniques have been developed to reach some specific objectives and ultimately the goal of helping the individuals heal. These objectives include:

*  Spending adequate time in areas to release blockages at tsubo (points)

*  Get ki and blood to flow thus increasing healing

*  Decrease and eliminate pain

*  Release tension in muscle/tendon and soft tissue

*  Relieve the problem in the fewest therapy sessions possible

It is important to note that Shoten Shiatsu Anma has no kata (form). The long form and short taught in our foundational classes are vital to understand how to learn and perform shiatsu anma and to balance the whole body energetically. Here we must begin moving away from the cognitive level and move towards feeling. In doing so, Shoten is a freer flowing shiatsu anma and will change according to each treatment provided with no two being the same. The points that will be shown are more of a guidance that and a rule to follow.  It is a method that is ever changing, never mastered and an ever-learning experience.
