Happy New Year!

The year of the rat will not be missed. Many people are looking forward to this new year of the Metal Ox whose characteristic is an honest nature, diligence, dependability, strength, and determination.  Ox people attach importance to family and work. These reflect traditional conservative characteristics. The ox sign is shared by the birth years of 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021. Lucky Color is white, yellow, and green. This year of yin energy reflects a slower and softer state compared to last year’s yang energy of fast, hard active state. May the new year 2021 keep you strong and determined to live your life to the fullest and achieve all of your goals. Wishing you love, peace, and unconditional happiness!

Free Online Orientation

If you didn’t get a chance to make it to the last online orientation, we hope you’ll join us for the next FREE Online Orientation, Sunday, February 7, 2021, 10AM-11:30AM PST.

Every first Sunday of the month our orientations will be held by myself, and Alan Saruwatari, one of my most dedicated graduates of the Shiatsu Massage School of California.

These monthly orientations will introduce Kaneko Shiatsu Anma to everyone interested in learning. We will also introduce other modalities such as Qigong & Daoyin and Meditation & Breathing. Because of the pandemic and our goal of sharing Kaneko Shiatsu Anma worldwide, we will be offering these orientations as well as other Kaneko Shiatsu Anma clsses online through Zoom.

Our upcoming Kaneko Shiatsu Anma class series starting January 10, 2021 will start teaching pressure points for everyday needs and introduce Kaneko Shiatsu Anma to use in tandem. For example, when treating a headache, pressure points would be introduced according to the type and location of the headache and then a demonstration of how to treat these points would follow. In the case of a tension headache, pressure points G.B.12, 20, 21, G.V. 15, U.B.10, would be introduced, and then a soothing (friction), kneading, pressing with Dantian breathing, and neck stretching and traction would be utilized. Each class includes some of these self-healing methods at the beginning and end. At the end, we’ll review and combine all the sequences and treat the body as a whole for healing the fundamental issue, beyond the local symptoms.

-Pressure Points & Meridian lines

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.
