What makes KENBIKI so special?
KINSEIRYUHOU KENBIKI techniquesüf uniqueness lies in its focus on twisted and/or out-of-place soft-tissues, mainly the muscles and the tendons. Many effective forms of therapy which focuses on the soft tissues exist, but the success-rate of fixing a physical ailment, and the simplicity therefore the speed, of KENBIKI therapy are all quite impressive.
It is certainly not a form of therapy that one ügpays for the time the therapist puts inüh, and many things done in KENBIKI may seem to contradict quite commonly-believed ügthe right thing to doüh. For example, for a sprained ankle (where there is no bone fracture and no complete tears in the soft tissues), it is typical for one to hold the ankle still, and ice the joint. However, KINSEIRYUHO based KENBIKI encourages warming the joint and moving/using the joint after a KENBIKI treatment, for extremely fast recovery.
Being a secretly kept healing method from ancient times in Japan in order to give advantage to the feudal clan who possessed the knowledge, KENBIKI is based on numerous experiences that have tested quick-and-effective techniques, which is its core and the only priority.
KENBIKI of course is not capable of fixing ALL SYMPTOMS, but surprisingly many forms of pain and malfunctioning of the body that one would think ügnot fixableüh may be fixed, and at a shockingly fast speed, literally ügat an instantüh, on many occasions. Considering its history, one may assume KENBIKI is only effective for injuries resulting from battle fields or something alike, but KINSEIRYUHOU is finding many impressively positive results after a KENBIKI treatment among people suffering from problems in their digestive systems, immune systems, and even mental wellness. I personally have seen and confirmed quite a few such instances with my own eyes. In all fairness and looking from a strict and critical point of view (Or, ügeven looking from a strict and critical point of viewüh, should I say), however, I can confirm with confidence that KENBIKIüfs biggest strength lies in its ability to get rid of pain and improve the range of motion, like no other form of therapy (that I know of) can.
As a professional therapist of a few different styles, I can say that there certainly is something very unique, very special, about KENBIKI, that no other therapy has. NOT to be misleading, many therapies have their own wonderfulness and effectiveness on their own and deserve respect, and I too hold a great deal of respect for many practitioners all over the world. SOMETHING, though, made me follow the path of KENBIKI, to the point of turning my ENERGY ROOM that used to specialize in Shiatsu, massage, and acupuncture, into a KENBIKI-DOJO under KINSEIRYUHOU. KINSEIRYUHOU is a relatively new organization, composed of practitioners who all united under the ancient and traditional art of KENBIKI. And many fellow KENBIKI practitioners within the still-evolving KINSEIRYUHOU organization hold similar levels of passion and desire, which are extremely hot and high, to constantly explore the human body and mind, all in hopes of making physical bodies feel and function better, alleviating pain and/or discomfort.
