What is Danzan Ryu Seifukujitsu - Healing Arts
"Wow, this so so much better than massage"
Danzan Ryu Jujitsu incorporates a complete system of massage and restoration therapies into its core system. The massage is based on Japanese Seifukujitsu and Hawaiian Lomi Lomi. Seifukujitsu is a form of healing involving bone setting, massage, herbs and specific techniques and therapies for individual conditions. Seifukujitsu can be translated as “adjustment and restoration techniques.” Lomi Lomi is the Hawaiian word for Massage. This style of bodywork is performed with the forearm and elbow in conjunction with the hands. It is an ancient form of bodywork which was common throughout the Polynesian and Hawaiian Islands.

These Pacific and Asian Restoration Therapies are utilized in class as necessary to lessen the severity of injury and to help students de-stress. One wishing to complete the full massage system may do so at specific times and locations throughout the United States under the AJJF Danzan Ryu Seifukijitsu Institute program.
Some basic mat massage techniques, including the back and the neck, will be taught occasionally at the end of class to those who wish to learn the techniques.
What to expect if you come to receive bodywork
Typical sessions will start with a brief assessment of the client including, posture, history and trouble spots. The client will then position themselves face down on the massage table between the sheets. Bare skin is preferred, due to the use of linements, creams, & oils, but is not required. The restorative therapies are predominately performed with the practitioner's elbow. These therapies can reach deep tissues in order to affect the trouble spots, but pressure and depth are adjusted according to individual needs.
