Course Description

Anma is one of the oldest known massage forms in existence, originating in China about 4,000 years ago. It moved into Japan more than 1,500 years ago where it developed into a distinct therapy.

It's primary technique is a kneading movement, whereas Swedish Massage is based on a stroking technique and Shiatsu is based on a pressure technique.

Shiatsu, a style of bodywork popularized after World War II, was developed from the amma tradition. Amma brings to Western culture the ancient art and wisdom of traditional Japanese massage.

Anma generally does not utilize oil during massage, it may be performed on the floor, on a massage table or virtually anywhere including while the client is seated in an ordinary chair. This makes amma an extremely flexible style of massage suitable to a wide variety of client needs and environments.

The Basic Techniques of Anma:

Anma contains seven foundational categories of techniques as follows:

Kei Satu Ho: (light stroking technique, this is one of the most common techniques in Anma)

Ju Netsu Ho: (kneading technique, this is the primary technique used in Anma)

Shin Sen Ho: (vibration technique)

Ap Paku Ho: (pressure technique)

Ko Da Ho: (percussion technique)

Kyoku Te Ho: (special percussion technique, only offered in two day class)

Un Do Ho: (stretching and movement technique)

In the Anma: Traditional Japanese Massage class we will demonstrate 45 examples of Anma techniques which will allow the practitioner to give a full body massage.

We will demonstrate 4 special Anma techniques as well.

The one day Anma: Japanese Massage class - Twelve, (12) Continuing education credits are awarded to the Massage Therapist and Certification after completion of the course.

Cost: $200 Class Only
