PHILOSOPHY
五色館 —  

Center for Ancient Japanese Shiatsu Healing 

Kumiko Kanayama_5 Lights.png

"When you touch one thing with deep awareness, you touch everything."

- Lao Tzu 

Self-realization through movement, meditation, breathwork, and massage.

The Five Lights Center Of Shiatsu is the longest running Japanese shiatsu massage practice in New York City, US and focuses on self-realization through movement, meditation, breathwork, and touch communication. Our healing philosophy cultivates an awareness of self and others and leads to improved health, vitality, and well-being.

Shiatsu is a bodywork that was developed in Japan in the 19th century. It is based on traditional Chinese medicine techniques that are more than 3,000 years old and are still practiced in many forms today.

The Japanese Zen Shiatsu Acupressure Tsubo focuses on the meridians or five points of energy that flow through the body. Shiatsu cultivates an awareness of how energy can stop flowing and how it can be restored to flow correctly. Teachings include an awareness of self and others, and the connection of mind to body that will lead to improved health, vitality, and well-being.

 

The benefits of practicing Shiatsu may include improvements in mood disorders, insomnia, and digestive issues, and may reduce muscle and joint pain. Best of all, Shiatsu can provide lasting overall health benefits.

We offer private and group sessions of alternative Eastern Treatments for mind and body wellness.
