Polarity Therapy seeks to bridge the full spectrum of body, mind and spirit: the body is designed by nature to heal itself. Your life is a living pattern of how you meet, relate to, hold, and express energy. This energy has attributes, qualities and consciousness. When energy is unbalanced, blocked or fixed due to stress or other factors, pain, dysfunction or dis-ease can arise. This may be on the physical, emotional or mental level of one’s experience. Polarity Therapy seeks to find the blockages and release energy to normal flow patterns, and to maintain the Energy Field in an open, flexible condition. In Polarity Therapy, health is viewed as a reflection of the condition of the energy field. Therapeutic methods are designed and applied to balance the  energy field for health benefit.

Who Can Benefit From A Polarity Session?  Anyone who desires greater ease, clarity, freedom, movement, balance, engagement, or creative expression with their life.

Toshiyuki Endo L.M.T.

L.M.T., Acupressure, Shiatsu Massage and Seitai Shiatsu (Japanese Posture Therapy)

Endo Toshiyuki L.M.T. was born in Akita Japan and studied at The Total Health Academy in Tokyo and at the Helma Institute of Massage Therapy in NJ.

Endo practices Seitai Shiatsu well as Shiatsu Massage, Swedish Massage and Trigger Point Therapy.

About Seitai Shiatsu (also known as Japanese Posture Therapy or Japanese Osteopathy. Literal translation: “Properly ordered body”):
Techniques of Seitai include breathing exercises and gentle stretching combined with massage of key points of the body.
The practice of Seitai not only treats “dis-eases” that have manifested symptoms, but can help restore the body’s natural defenses, allowing the body to balance itself before symptoms arise. Aligning the body allows better circulation and flow of lymph—and of the energy which traditional Japanese medicine calls “ki.” This may enhance the functioning of the immune system, relieve pain, improve the energy level and reduce stress.

Seitai Shiatsu originated from Budo medicine. “Budo” refers to Japanese martial arts systems emphasizing “do”—personal, ethical and spiritual development—as the ultimate goal of their training. The roots of Budo healing systems are said to go back to 12th Century Japan when Samurai roamed the land. Techniques of Budo medicine were developed as part of the foundations of martial arts, so warriors could heal themselves and each other when wounded.

Seitai is currently an extremely popular healing modality in Japan and now becoming better known in Europe and North America.

“Since 3 years ago, I suffered from a low backache, a curving back, and a crooked waistline. I tried many kinds of treatment but nothing helped me. I was depressed… until my friend recommended Mr. Endo’s Seitai method. I was completely amazed and impressed by the wonderful effect it had on me. My lower backache was gone with only one session!
Gradually, my back straightened out and my waistline became parallel. This all happened by receiving regular therapy sessions, practicing stretching exercises and doing foot massage that Mr. Endo taught me.” 

— Mrs. S.Y. (62)
