What makes KENBIKI so special?
KINSEIRYUHOU KENBIKI techniques’ 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 “pays for the time the therapist puts in”, and many things done in KENBIKI may seem to contradict quite commonly-believed “the right thing to do”. 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 and has undergone strict testing in the actual battlefields, resulting in its quick-and-effective techniques.
KENBIKI of course is not capable of fixing ALL SYMPTOMS, but surprisingly many forms of pain and malfunctioning of the body that one may think “not fixable” may be fixed, quite simply and quickly, quite frequently. Considering its history, one may assume KENBIKI is only effective for injuries resulting from battle fields or something alike, but KINSEIRYUHOU is finding many promising positive results after a KENBIKI treatment among people suffering from problems in their digestive systems, immune systems, and even mental wellness.
There certainly is something very unique about KENBIKI, though many forms and styles of therapies have their own wonderfulness and effectiveness that deserve respect and I myself hold a great deal of respect for many practitioners all over the world.
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, should I say, to constantly explore the human body and mind, all in hopes of making physical bodies feel and function better, alleviating pain and/or discomfort.
