ASI SHNABEL LMT
JAPANESE HEALING & MARTIAL ARTS SPECIALIST
Specialist and Instructor of SHIATSU-ANMA therapy (traditional Japanese Acupressure and bodywork therapy) and AIKIDO martial art, with over 35 years of practice.
My career's journey
Mastering those skills and improving my body’s vital energy (KI) is a life work of mine. My journey has began with a strong passion for Japanese culture at young age. I was amazed by it’s values of grace, elegance and beauty, along side with inner power, dignity and the highest respect for nature and the universe. My first practice has been through martial arts, and later on I was introduced to traditional Asian Medicine and the concept of healing it supports (KI). I quickly came to realize I have a gift in my hands and exceptionally talented in healing through Shiatsu-Anma therapy. So I became an enthusiast and advocate.
The skills I’ve mastered had greatly contributed to my growth as an individual in terms of health, self awareness and faith in life and our universe. I wish to share these benefits with as many people as I can!
Life's Vital Energy: Qi
The concept of Energy in traditional Asian Philosophy (Jap. “Ki”, Chi. “Qi”, Hindu “Prana”) is referred to the vital force of life that flows within every living object and nourishes and metabolize it through an endless natural cycle. It is the vital breath of life that unites all creations. It may sound esoteric but can actually be well explained by scientific terms as the ability of every living organism to “breath”, circulate and transform.
