Mission Statement

To teach parents and communities how to cultivate an individual’s innate healing abilities for health, happiness, peace, family unity, and the improvement of children’s lives.

At Shindo Spirit we integrate Eastern healing modalities such as energetic medicine and Lotus Faith Healing Medicine, with Western health modalities, for all ages and for optimal health.

Our goal

Our goal is to educate people of all ages on alternative and natural ways to prevent disease, to heal naturally, and to age gracefully. We also aim to build a compassionate community and society whose individuals take care of each other.


Kids and Healing


Cause and effect is the principle of Lotus Faith Healing Medicine and underlies the law of the universe. When we want to heal ourselves we need to be able to serve the needs of  others. Healing ourselves works better when we can help those around us. Most importantly we need to help children who need care and love.

Shindo Spirit aims to promote the concept of healing and healing education at home. We also want to help the healthy development of children under safe and loving learning environments. Because of the benefits of the healing arts, it is important to help children cultivate kindness, gentleness, politeness and compassion for others as early as possible. The following are some of the benefits of children who learn to cultivate their own healing modalities.

  • Kids are empowered to take their health into their own hands when growing up into adulthood.
  • They can help provide healing for their parents and family members.
  • Practicing on parents can help children develop compassion and build stronger bonds with their parents

“Skinship” in Japan and Korea, which is closeness between mother and child, is one of the basic but fundamental communications in the family. We support skinship with children and for this reason have incorporated activities that children can practice with their parents. These methods are very natural, safe and fun to practice together. They can also be a simple but meaningful addition to family activities.

Tapping like musicians, laughing like monkeys,  shaking the body like goldfish, rubbing the skin like washing, easy stances of Chigong like the tree, sunflower, and apple, are powerful healing tools for children and parents. These practices are below:

  • Music hands
  • Monkey business
  • the Goldfish
  • Sole to Sole
  • Chigong

Eastern Healing Arts – Healing Paradigm

As we develop into a modern high-tech lifestyle we face a greater need for the holistic healing arts and a healthy lifestyle. Eastern healing arts uses a subtle but powerful energetic life force which not only treats a person’s weaknesses or missing element, but also integrates a person’s physical, mental and spiritual aspects for wellbeing. Taichi, ChiGong, Daoyin, Shiatsu-Anma, meditation and many other traditional practices including medicinal foods and herbs can benefit the whole family, both young and old.

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.

Join us and learn from his expertise these unique healing methods to benefit you clients, family, friends and yourself. Kaneko Shiatsu Anma  has proven to be a powerful therapy that can compliment and enhance many other healing modalities.
