A young woman came into the office with a diagnosis from her MD of Fibromyalgia. She had, for the past two years gone through extensive treatments and tests, but nothing helped. In fact, she brought and gave me a copy of all the treatments she had gone through. There were so many pages she stapled them together. She had pain all over her body which kept her from being the very active and athletic person she once was. I said to her “let’s start with the pain issues that’s giving you the most problem.” Using shiatsu anma I treated her upper back, neck and shoulders. The next week she came back and said she felt a little better and was hopeful. After her third session she was feeling so much better, she decided to go with friends, white water rafting. She was very apprehensive and nervous because anytime she did any physical activity, the following day she was in excruciating pain. But the day after white water rafting, very little pain! She continued for close to ten treatement session with me and at the end of that time she left pain free.

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.
