DoAnn’s Qigong & Daoyin Classes @ Camera Obscura Art Lab
Feb 23 @ 9:30 am – 10:30 am

“Use it! Or Lose it” and “Running water never grows stale” are old proverbs. It’s obviously simple, but how do you manage effective exercise for your body, mind, and spirit? This question is significant when you want to achieve ultimate happiness. Would you like to experience an infinite power, a wonderful opportunity to be one with the universe?

Even if you don’t enroll in Acupuncture School, you can learn the concept of Qi and practice pressure therapy for your health with me. You will be guided by the divine order of the universe called TAO. As you focus on abdominal breathing, the energy cycle of life and death goes on as a rebirthing process. You will be able to rediscover and recharge yourself with an unlimited source.

There are two cleansing and harmonious Qigong exercises that I will introduce to you.

# 1. Baduanjin (known as eight silk-like movements) works on major organs by extending each meridian.

#2.Tree Qigong is used to experience the tree life cycle (from germination to the time the seed drops back into the soil) Let’s experience the divine order of the universe by realizing and practicing the life cycle of the tree that occurs in our life cycle.

Feel energized with the beautiful views of Santa Monica beach. For Baduanjin, I will teach you how to stretch the extremities, spine, and meridians. For Tree Qigong stances you will learn gentle but transformational exercises with vigorous abdominal breathing.

Daoyin is a form of exercise to generate the qi energy and blood flow to vital organs. Daoyin stimulates the vital points and meridians in order to clean the stagnation of the various systems, vitalize the tissues and improve the circulation on a cellular level. Dr. Kaneko also incorporates a focus on building a strong faith in the body’s own healing process. For Daoyin, 15 movements that utilize the pressure points and abdominal breath will be taught.

Handouts will be supplied, and additional teaching material is available upon request. Yoga mat, or something to comfortably sit or lie on required. Students must pre-register for the series online or by phone.

Dr. Kaneko’s meditation style is based on a traditional Taoist style that he customized for an easier and more practical approach. It involves lying on the back or sitting, and even some standing or walking.

Shiatsu Anma Therapy – Pain Management Workshop @ Camera Obscura
Mar 7 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Shiatsu Anma Therapy - Pain Management Workshop @ Camera Obscura

Pain Series – Lower and Upper Extremities

People complain of pain often caused by occupational injuries,  chronic conditions, sports related injuries,  and wrong postural management in daily activities such as driving and sitting. Pain can also be manifested through age related issues such as degenerated disks, osteoporosis, deformation of joints and spine, as well as stress, emotional, and mental issues. Pain and problems can be found in the viscera-muscle reflex, for example, right shoulder and neck tension as well as  in the energetic system conditions of the Gall Bladder, Liver, right Lung, or right Kidney. Meantime left sided neck & shoulder pain can be manifested from the left Lung, Stomach and left Kidney ailments.

We need to differentiate between either Neuro-muscular system issues or viscera related energetic system issues. Sometimes both conditions overlap. We need to understand an effective way to monitor it through developing a comprehensive questionnaire for each patient.

Shiatsu anma therapy is very effective for pain release and helps improve misalignment through numerous applications not only by pressure therapy but also a cross-fiber technique, rubbing with ointment technique, tapping technique, decompressing- traction techniques, joint mobilization techniques, and more. However this class does not apply any chiropractic adjustments.

It is very obvious and fundamental to remove the source of problems before or along with treating the symptoms. It often requires continuous efforts at home after the Shiatsu-Anma sessions through resting, effective stretches, muscle strengthening, heating or icing, and energy work such as qigong, yoga, daoyin, and taichi. Transssage is an excellent guided meditation for pain due to mental, emotional and stress inducing factors.

Our goal in these pain series workshops is very simple; get the qi, blood, lymph and spinal fluid moving into the local pain site and its cellular space. It is a matter of improving circulation as well as proper alignment in the structure, its flexibility, and muscle tone. Various Shiatsu and Anma techniques provide excellent healing tools to achieve ones healing goal.

Learning Objectives:
Students will be able to explain the nature of pain and locate the site of pain.
Students will be able to list the major symptomatology of tension, spasms, numbness, discomfort, and ROM
Students will be able to list the etiology of the cause or source of the pain
Students will be able to demonstrate the basic orthopedic evaluation and able to read dermatome charts
Students will be able to learn how to deal with pain at their client’s home through effective, safe stretching and exercises.

Location: Camera Obscura, 1450 Ocean Ave, Santa Monica, CA
Cost: $165 for each day. $20 discount if signing up for 2 days.
Date: Sundays, March 7 & March 14
Time: 9AM – 5PM
