Winter 2022

In these 8 week classes Dr. Kaneko will be teaching two Qigong styles: Baduanjin with 8 silk movements that stretch the extremities, spine, and meridians, and Tree Qigong stances, which are gentle but transformational with vigorous abdominal breathing.

Daoyin is another exercise he will teach to generate the qi energy and blood flow to vital organs. Daoyin stimulates the vital points and meridians in order to clean the stagnation of the various systems, vitalize the tissues and improve the circulation on a cellular level. Dr. Kaneko also incorporates a focus on building a strong faith in the body’s own healing process. For Daoyin, 15 movements that utilize the pressure points and abdominal breath will be taught.

Handouts will be supplied, and additional teaching material is available upon request.
Face mask is required. Bring yoga mat, or something to comfortably sit or lie on, and wear clothing for exercise.

Have you always been interested in learning about pressure points and meridian lines or do you want to brush up on your Shiatsu-Anma? Join us for this uniqe opportunity to learn from a Grandmaster and second generation Shiatsu-Anma therapist, shiatsu pioneer in the U.S. and in the field for more than 50 years!

Kaneko Shiatsu Anma therapy is an effective combination of kneading and pressure therapy using meridian lines and acupuncture points. Shiatsu, which means  finger pressure, came from Japan over 100 years ago. Anma, which is “pressure soothing” and in practice includes kneading, came from China a few thousand years ago. Meridian lines are energy channels that circulate qi and blood throughout the body. Pressure points, or tsubo, in Japanese are line tuning points that assess energy flow, and will tell you whether energy is flowing or blocked, as well as in excess or deficiency. When there is a blockage of energy flow it can lead to health imbalances. In releasing blockages you regulate the body’s metabolism and homeostasis which benefit the tissue and cells. The benefit of Kaneko Shiatsu Anma is that it treats the person as a whole, integrating body, mind and spirit. It provides therapy for chronic, degenerative, and constitutional conditions, as well as stress management, anti-aging and immune boosting purposes. Treatments also are provided at the local areas for pain conditions. 

We are offering a 7 class series that will be held on the every other Saturday starting on July 23, 2022. Kaneko Shiatsu Anma is beneficial for professionals and laymen alike. This series of classes will cover Dr. Kaneko’s DoAnn Long Form, a way to balance the whole body in a one hour treatment session. Each class will cover different parts of the body in order. There will be a review from the previous classes as each area is covered and at the end participants will understand the entire form.  

Grandmaster Dr. DoAnn Kaneko and Alan Saruwatari, a former graduate Dr. Kaneko’s Shiatsu Massage School of California will be teaching these classes. Dr. Kaneko has taught thousands of students since the founding of his former school and healed a variety of ailments with this powerful therapy.
