We are excited to announce FREE online monthly orientations focusing on Kaneko Shiatsu Anma! Every first Sunday of the month our orientations will be held by Grandmaster Dr. DoAnn Kaneko and Alan Saruwatari, Dr. Kaneko’s most dedicated graduate 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 classes 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.
