What is KENBIKI? (From the KINSEIRYUHOU website, translated by Rick)


Our bodies are connected with KEN(tendons and muscles).

The human skeleton is composed of many bones, small to large in sizes, from the top of our heads to the tips of our toes.  However, our bodies are not simply bones-piled-on-top-of-bones.

The aligning and constructing the bones into the human body form are accomplished by muscles, and the muscles connect to tendons, which in turn connect to the bones.

The human body has more than 600 muscles, and these muscles, together with tendons, are what give us our physiques.


Re-aligning the KEN into proper positions is KENBIKI.

Our tendons and muscles can pop out of alignment and/or become twisted by physical motions, daily habits, and/or external impacts.

Such tendons and muscles lack the ability to function properly at their optimum lengths, and typically put stress on the joints.  This leads to distortion of the entire skeletal frame and structure, leading to pain and malfunctions.

KENBIKI, which focuses on repositioning the KEN back into their correct alignments, can be considered to be a very rational form of therapy.


The gproblemh will not show on an  x-ray radiography.

In modern medicine and chiropractice, x-rays are taken when a patient complains of joint pain.

However, only BONES show up on radiography, and the more relative, therefore more important, muscles and tendons remain invisible.

Muscles and tendons connect bone-to-bone, so without looking at those KEN, the chances of ridding the body of problems and pain are quite slim.


KENBIKI, something that is NOT massage.

KENBIKI may seem like it is a method of pushing the muscles around, but it is actually quite the opposite in the sense that it is BIKI, a pulling, of the KEN (muscles and tendons).

By ghookingh the KEN to the KENBIKI practitionerfs fingertips, the KEN is stimulated and re-adjusted back to their ideal positions.

In addition, KENBIKI does not knead or massage a particular muscle.  When kneaded or massaged, a muscle can further push the KEN out of its ideal alignment, and/or further twist the muscle itself.


ONE-SHOT QUICK-FIX may be accomplished by approaching from the KEN.

KENBIKI is a form of Eastern Medicine.

And its approach is rather direct and straight-forward, compared to approaches like acupuncture and chi-gong which focus on indirectly pulling out the self-healing abilities of a given patient.

A single-shot, quick effect can be seen quite frequently in KENBIKI, as it directly focuses on the physical KEN.

And its replicability can be considered high, due to KENBIKIfs clearness in what needs to be focused, its method, and its effects.


ESocis KENBIKI really THAT great?
