ABOUT ASI SHNABEL
I am a long-term specialist and instructor of SHIATSU-ANMA therapy (traditional Japanese Acupressure and bodywork therapy) and AIKIDO martial art.
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!
I am a state-certified Therapist (LMT; State license #MA98535), a Healer, an expert and Instructor of SHIATSU- ANMA therapy (a Japanese traditional healing art). I practice SHIATSU-ANMA since 1996 and was instructing it in several professional schools of massage & bodywork since 2013.
My unique style
In My sessions I have developed a great level of sensitivity and intuition guided by an amazing principle which I name “The Diaphragm principle”: Any pressure technique is meant to evoke a breathing reflex by the Diaphragm so to start a natural corrective process. This principle is very simple, yet most accurate & effective. It helped me gain incredible results over the years!
I strive to promote Shiatsu and Anma healing arts as unique tools for health management, improvement and awareness.
My treatments cater to individuals who care for their bodies and seek to improve and utilize their own self healing powers for the purpose of general well-being, improving bodily circulation and also to alleviating a large variety of bodily ailments.
