About Zen Shiatsu

Zen Shiatsu was founded by Shizuto Masunaga.
His book ( Zen Shiatsu: How to Harmonize Yin and Yang for Better Health ) is a world famous and a classic for all Shiatsu practitioners.

He established Meridian acupressure ( Meridian Shiatsu ) methodology.

And he also founded the Iokai Shiatsu Center school in Tokyo.

One of the characteristics of Zen Shiatsu is Abdominal palpation.
It is the technique to see patient’s energy ( yin-yang, chi ) balance, at the same time it is also a treatment.

I ( Takamasa Tsuchiya, manager of Koyasan Uguisu Seitaiin Massage Shiatsu ) studied at Iokai Shiatsu Center school in Tokyo.
I am using Zen Shiatsu technique mainly in my treatments.

I Love Animal Shiatsu

When I tried Shiatsu to horses, I found intuitively that it’s same as human. So I want comunicate with animals through my Shiatsu as much as I can. This is also one of my life activities.

Teaching Shiatsu

My Music

I really had been crazy about creating music since I was young. Originally, I studied Tai Chi, Yoga, meditation and several body works to improve my musical ability. As a result, these skills are very useful for working as a Shiatsu therapist.


I live in the holy mountain, Koyasan (Mt.Koya), one of the most spiritual and peaceful places in Japan. It is a sacred place of Shingon Buddhism. Now I have been accepting my big life-change ( Tokyo → Koyasan ) as my destiny to serve what I can do for the people in the world.

Sometimes I feel like as if I was maditating when I am giving Shiatsu…
