The Art of Growing, known as Seicho Jutsu is a Medium  to;
Physical, Mental and Spiritual Development.

 It is the Students, Practitioners, Instructors and Masters intention to become one with body, mind, and spirit. This is done through a vast curriculum which includes training of the body, mind and spirit as well as the studies of acupressure, reiki , herbology, astrology, ostiology, myology, kinesiology, neurology, lymphatic-circulatory and endocrine systems....

Training & Treatment

Massage: The form of massage therapy we use is very unique. It is unlike traditional massage therapy. It consists of acupressure, reiki and relaxation imagery meditation utilizing breathing techniques. Through this form of massage, the practitioner not only relaxes the muscles and aligns the energy, but also teaches awareness and development of a neural network. This neural network allows one to develop the ability to release and relax ones own tension. This is also done through various stretches and breathing techniques.
In advanced levels there is also the understanding of cause and effect relating to the understanding and relation of emotional energy. In essence; this form of massage helps one physically, mentally and spiritually.

Body:  Training the body consist of; physical control of body components - (stretching, balance, co-ordination, reflexes, timing, and strength) as one is physically training they are also learning the muscular and the skeletal system as well as body mechanics.

Mind:  Training the mind consist of; the awareness and development of a balanced clear mind through various mental exercises and relaxation /  imagery meditation. Learning and analyzing psychological strategies and emotional actions / reactions. Philosophy, including discussions and lectures on morality, perception, enlightenment, wisdom and life.

Spirit:  Training the spirit consist of; the awareness and development of ones inner self, soul, or spirit. Discussions and lectures on belief, direction and the control of spiritual / universal energy.

In many cases your body, mind and spirit will be training together. You could be training the body while developing the mind, or training the mind while developing your spiritual oneself. For example: while training physically one may develop self control, confidence and self discipline.
