Yumeiho Japanese Massage
Yumeiho Therapy (pronounced: you-may-hoe) is a highly specialised form of bodywork, also described in Japan as Kotsuban Seitai Ho. It is a manual healing method designed to ‘balance the human physiology’ starting from postural adjustment by applying certain procedures of myo-articular functional balancing, point therapy, massage and joint adjustments.
‘Balance is the key to everything.
With balance we find alignment.
In alignment there is harmony’
Yumeiho Therapy is based on a long term study of the Zheng Ti Fa rehabilitation techniques applied within the Buddhist monasteries (inc. the Shao Lin monastery too, amongst others) from China. It is also influenced by other Chinese/Japanese manual healing methods such as: Tui-na, Zheng Ti Fa, An-Ma, Shiatsu, Do In, Seiti-Ho etc.
It involves a flowing combination of deep Massage, Shiatsu, Acupressure, and Physiotherapy and Chiropractic-style techniques. The treatment is fully clothed on a cushioned floor.
Yumeiho Therapy is most effective when approached as a programme of corrective, preventative and restorative self-care.
A weekly treatment for the first 7-10 weeks is required (unless the situation is more acute, in which case up to 20 treatments may be required) in order to help the body ‘remember’ its balanced position again. Thereafter, a monthly treatment is generally helpful for maintenance of balance.
Yumeiho Therapy is especially helpful in relieving back, neck, shoulders, hips, knees and other joint pain. It also helps relieve Lumbago (lower back pain), Sciatica, Scoliosis, headaches, Insomnia, diarrhoea, menstrual pain, trapped nerves and internal organ issues.
