New to Sotai?

This workshop is ideal practitioners looking to work in a more gentle manner, with a focus on palpation, structural assessment, and active listening. No experience in Traditional Japanese Medicine is necessary. Although the techniques are gentle in nature, the effects are profound and immediate. This seminar will focus on treatment protocol for integration into your clinical practice.

Instructor Bio

Hiroaki Komatsu (Sotai specialist; Licensed Anma, Massage & Shiatsu therapist)

Hiroaki was born in Tokyo and now lives and practices in Kyoto. He studied Sōtai with Maruzumi Kazuo, a disciple of Hashimoto Keizo, among others. He opened his Sōtai therapy center, Akatoki-An, in 2010 and he sees patients from all over the world (over 20 countries) as well as from Japan. With a deep interest in martial arts and spiritual disciplines, he has taught collaborative seminars blending Sōtai with Qigong, meditation, as well as aspects of traditional kobudo martial arts. He calls this blended new approach Sōtai Intuitivo. He has also worked to bring together the students of Dr. Hashimoto Keizo to host events in Sendai (where Dr. Hashimoto lived) recalling Dr. Hashimoto while he was still living and working, so that the next generation of Sotai practitioners can benefit from these stories and information. This will be Hiroaki's 2nd visit to the US and first time to Portland.
