Developed in Kotohira, Japan by Naoichi Kuzome, Hara Shiatsu is a type of bodywork therapy that uses very effective and straightforward diagnostics and treatments. This approach can be done for home treatment or used in clinical settings. Diagnosing abdominal issues is done in an attempt to evaluate the weakness, looseness, lumps, tightness, hardness, and sensations and reactions that move with pressure. The treatments strongly encourage the participation of the patient for his/her own healing process.
Hara Shiatsu practitioners teach their patients to use their own skills to help them treat themselves. Clinical visits may not be necessary since a lot of health problems can be solved at home simply by combining breathing exercises with moxa treatment. This means that with this type of treatment, financial costs associated with chronic conditions can be minimized.
Mr. Kuzome says that he treats every condition from knee pain to toothaches through the abdomen, and he emphasizes that the involvement of the patient and home treatments are very crucial in realizing full healing.
