Anma Meridian Massage Therapy and Shiatsu Pressure Therapy DVD

This DVD will include how to release toxicities in the abdomen, another popular side posture sequence, advanced various pressure techniques and more neck & shoulder treatments in the sitting position. Thus you can treat common complaints with more results.



This DVD will teach you several subjects:

  1. Anpuku, abdominal Anma Massage Therapy.
  2. Side posture sequence of Anma and Shiatsu therapy.
  3. Additional Shiatsu pressure techniques.
  4. Sitting Anma therapy.

Dr. Kaneko introduces two Anpuku styles practiced today in Japan. Shinsai Ota’s 13 techniques from his classic, The Illustration of Anpuku ( Anpukuzukai ) and Goto School’s Anpuku. These methods are not just for gastro-intestinal health but also for general wellbeing of our immune system through manual detoxification based on the energetic system. Indeed Anpuku therapy covers the respiratory, cardio-vascular, reproductive and excretory systems as well.

Side posture is very instrumental for those who have neck and shoulders stiffness, lower back pain, and includes additional stretching exercises. It is also very helpful for pregnant women and the obese. We learn another 20 minute sequence of Anma and Shiatsu therapy with additional meridians and pressure acupuncture points.

Pressure techniques were developed from traditional Anma therapy from China where Anma is called Anmo or Tuina. The art of pressure techniques have been introduced in Shiatsu therapy in Japan and cultivated deeply into various applications such as two-step pressure, three-step pressure, continual pressure, vibratory pressure, quick pressure and suction like negative pressure. In Anma therapy’s long from only two pressure techniques are introduced: ordinary pressure and intermittent pressure. Shiatsu therapy focuses to on pressure, exercises and Kyosei-stretching techniques but it does not limit the results when you apply many of these effective pressure techniques according to the various conditions.

Neck & shoulder conditions such as pains and limited R.O.M. (Range Of Motion) and back ailments are our daily concerns. Dr. Kaneko demonstrates these many effective exercises and Kyosei stretching for the popular complaints in the computer age today. There are advanced techniques we need to pay attention to. Please be well trained before applying these methods.

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.
