Seitai - Japanese Physiotherapy
Setai literally means to correct the body and was very popular in Japan until the Meiji period. During the 1950's Setai re-emerged as a natural therapy through the influences of American Chiropractic/Osteopathy and many Setai colleges in Japan are now known as Setai Chiropractic College.
Setai utilises many different methods for body correction including the following(1)
Setai focuses on the Head (on neck), Hara (spine/pelvis) and the feet to bring about symmetry and paralateral movement(2). Therefore all treatments re-align and re-balance the person from head to toe whilst balancing the meridian circuits of the body and the intrinsic cranial sacral system. This results in a restoration of symmetry and a boost to homeostasis (immune system enhancement) with a reduction of stress and body strains.
