Sotaiho coordinates breath and resisted movement.
I like to think of Sotai as assisted Qigong. Sotai’s method is that of moving away from pain, and toward balance. The treatment is a fantastic way to relieve many forms of stress. Structural and Emotional imbalances are addressed.
Life incorporates stresses on each of us.
Among them are:
- The workloads we must endure.
The personal relationships we have.
The quantity and quality of what we eat and drink.
The quality of the air we breathe.
These factors all take a toll on our bodies and our energies.
SOTAI is the Manual Medicine, which Keizo Hashimoto, M.D. (1897 – 1993) developed. He applied classical Oriental medical healing arts with modern medical knowledge. The treatment of SOTAI is to move AWAY from pain. If it hurts to move to the left, move to the right. When the Sotai treatment is completed, the patient feels as though he/she has received a combination of massage, chiropractic adjustment, and acupuncture, all rolled into one treatment. It is THAT complete.
The Sotai treatment basically hits the reset button. The treatment itself takes a little under an hour and works each and every meridian in the body. Fewer needles are required and the balance achieved is remarkable and long lasting. Energy seems to flow smoothly and the mind feels at ease. My teacher/mentor is Peter Guy Thompson, who has learned this form of healing directly from Dr Hashimoto in Japan, and has brought it to America. Peter has built a systematic form to these moves and has worked with me to make them my own.
