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.
