Prayers for the Holiday Season:
Time to Strengthen our Faith Healing 

Since we are nearing the celebration time for Jesus’s birthday, I want to share my interpretation from a Buddhist perspective of what this time means. Figuratively speaking, we are reborn every single day. Every day is our birthday. Jesus Christ healed and saved countless people in his 30 years of life. In this season I appreciate and give prayers to Shakyamuni Buddha who lived up to 80 years old. He preached to numerous people of wisdom, compassion and Qi or vital force for 45 years.

I have learned how important it is to pray with faith every day and tap deep into our Buddha nature at every second of our breath. What we are today is the result of our past lives beyond our ancestors, our origins in the ocean, and even beyond our life on earth. This moment of our breath is a way to connect to our source of life and feel the unlimited cosmic consciousness in every one of the 7 chakras through prayers. Breath is full of eternal and miraculous vibration and light. When I focus on it, I definitely feel a strong, healing, boosting immune power that reverses aging.

The state of praying is deeper than meditation. It is a moment to appreciate and receive the power of love with wisdom so that we can cultivate the Qi that both Jesus Christ and Shakmnuni Buddha shared. Life is a continuity of miracles of cosmic consciousness. How we function now is a consequence of the miracles of the universe. We should not take endless miracles for granted in the midst of difficulties and challenges. No matter what happens our faith should never be compromised. Neverending miracles continue occurring through appreciation, regardless of what is on our wish list, because everyone has a Buddha and Christ nature within that they can tap into.

I introduce many forms of prayers in my classes. For example the prayers in the morning to the universe, the prayers to my water and meal, along with twice a day Buddhist medicine chanting/prayers, and during my practice with patients. Let’s keep praying for world peace, unconditional happiness and love every breath and every day. May our mindful breaths take us to a wonderful 2022!

If you want to know more about the power of prayer I highly recommend reading Prayer is Good Medicine by Larry Dossey, M.D. He talks about how to reap the healing benefits of prayer.

Let us pray that love, healing power, and unconditional happiness prevail for our family, friends, humankind, and living creatures.

Pressure Point of the Day

G.V. 15, Gate of the Deaf and Mute, is located between the 1st and 2nd cervical vertebrae. For me, this is one of the most important pressure points in the psychosomatic neuroendocrine system. I call it the gate of our pharmacies within. It allows you to access your own body’s tranquilizers and is located below the Medulla oblongata. I explain the function of this Medulla below. Because fall and autumn bring the energy of melancholy, grief, sadness, this is a good pressure point for these emotions. However, G.V. 15 is also good to use year-round.

Traditionally, this pressure point is good for epilepsy, stroke, speech difficulty, posterior headache, nosebleed, neurosis, and hysteria. I like to use this for my patients to potentially balance brain chemistry for the following cases:

Stress management by regulating cortisol, depression by increasing serotonin and dopamine, and insomnia by increasing melatonin. My patients often respond by saying it feels so good! It releases negative and heavy congestion from the mind.  I always ask my patients to focus on abdominal Dantian breathing when I apply deep pressure on the point. I also incorporate another pressure point of the Third Eye when I apply pressure. It brings an immediate experience of transformation from the physical body to Dharma consciousness which is filled with compassion and peace.

The brainstem controls the autonomic nervous system which regulates the body’s involuntary functions like breathing, digestion, maintaining blood pressure and temperature, and circulating blood. The reticular activating system which regulates sleep patterns also resides here.

Cranial nerves help the brain stem function. 10 of 12 cranial nerves reside in the brainstem and the first two cranial nerves control smell and vision. Nerves 3 through 8 begin in the midbrain and pons, and nerves nine through 12 begin in the medulla.

  • Cranial nerve 9 is the glossopharyngeal nerve, and it controls swallowing, taste, and saliva production.
  • Cranial nerve 10 is the vagus nerve, which plays a role in breathing, heart function, and digestion. This nerve is also the source for parasympathetic stimulation, which controls hormone release.
  • Cranial nerve 11 is the accessory nerve, and controls the muscles in the upper back and neck. This nerve allows you to turn your head and shrug your shoulders.
  • Cranial nerve 12 is the hypoglossal nerve. This nerve controls tongue movement and is important for speech and swallowing.

These sections of the brain and their cranial nerves relay messages to the spinal cord and the rest of the body to perform our basic life functions.

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.
