Seifukujitsu - Restorative Body Work

Though the term "Seifukujitsu" is largely unknown in this country, it is immediately recognized in Japan and Hawaii. This healing method is over 1200 years old and its practitioners in Japan are referred to as “doctor”. It can be translated as “Restoration Therapy” due to its emphasis on restoring the body to a state known in China as “Fusheng” or restore to normal.

This method successfully treats many body conditions with specific protocols for such conditions as:
  • Muscle strain and sprain
  • Joint strain and sprain
  • Migraine headaches
  • Sports and work injuries
  • General fatigue.
Restoration Therapy has two goals:
  1. To balance the energy in the body (the "Ki" in Japanese or "Chi" in Chinese)
  2. To break down soft tissue areas of the body that have been injured to allow them to properly heal.
Few massage methods today have the range of therapies as does Seifukujitsu, due to its long history and development. Simply to call it massage does not fully define it, as it is a much larger treatment method. It is recognized as a therapy for body restoration. Within the Bodywork profession it is commonly referred to as Okazaki Restorative Massage (ORM).
