A. Daoyin / Standing stances

The standing stances of Daoyin detoxifies the essential healing system and upgrades the body’s defense mechanism.  Daoyin is an excellent self-healing technique to activate the chi energy and blood flow (clarify blood). Daoyin utilizes pressure points and meridians through pressing, tapping, stretching, and twisting with abdominal breath control. It will help to cleanse the energy flow, release blockages,  maximize unlimited chi, and unleash innate powers for healing.

B. Daoyin / Self treatment

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), all toxicities such as retention of blood including bruises and hormonal stagnation, retention of fluid like mucus, edema, retention of gas, fermented food and stagnant feces cause 10,000 kinds of diseases. You need to keep your G.I, urinary bladder, kidney, liver, gall bladder, prostate, uterus, ovaries and other sexual organs as clean as possible. This is a detox program focusing on abdominal manipulation. This includes abdominal pressure and massaging of organs, meridians and pressure points. Simpler but effective energy work are also included.

C. Qigong / Baduanjin: The oriental elixir

E. Foot and calf pressure and massage therapy

According to foot reflexology and energetic medicine, which connects internal organs to the lower extremities, the condition of every organ in the body is evaluated and treated in the feet. For example, bodily toxins are often developed then stored in the abdomen and spread to the legs and feet. Consequently, certain pressure points on the feet that are associated to the toxic organs in the abdomen become very tight. It is also reported that foot and calf massage is an excellent practice to empower the immune system and slow down aging. You can apply it on yourself as well as on others.

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.
