Healing Arts

Body Majik Therapeutic Bodywork

Kimbal Anderson MA. Ed. LMT
Member of Associated Body Work and Massage Professionals

Someone once asked me, what is it exactly that you do? I have had the usual formal training in various modes of healing: acupuncture, shiatsu, many forms of both eastern and western bodywork, traditional herbal medicine and cutting edge somatic research. In truth, I have had the incredible good fortune of encountering and studying with great teachers. My time as an apprentice with each of them has given me passion for doing the same. The experience of spending months and sometimes years  with them working, hearing and sharing  their experience made a lasting impression on me.It is that spirit I want to cultivate and preserve in our school and clinic.  While we were waxing poetic about our training one of my dearest teachers who was listening to us said, “Your philosophy is beautiful, but teach me with your sword”.  After thirty five years of practice and training I have found that it is in the doing that we show who we are.  This is the basis for how and what I wish to teach.

Aikido’s Relationship to Therapy

A large percentage of therapeutic bodyworkers don’t last in the profession more than a few years.  However, if you are trained to move and connect properly with a client,  you will be able to practice the healing arts for many years to come.

Aikido is a conduit to better movement and motion.  Its practice creates a better connection between practitioner and client.  By tapping in to the freedom of universal energy you will be better equipped to deliver greater healing to your clients, as well as protect yourself from injury.
