WHAT IS HIBIKI THERAPY?
This is a therapy developed by Mikito Nagai Sensei from Japan.
It involves vibrating the bones very gently to relax and revitalise the body from the inside to the outside.
It comes from Nagai Sensei’s legacy of over 50 years of treating people six days per week.
Dozen Hibiki is a very soft and gentle therapy with powerful effect on a variety of ailments.
Hibiki (Hib-e-ki) means ‘Echo”.
Dozen (Doe-zen) is a moving Zen meditation performed with heightened responsiveness, connectivity and maximum stability.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
Receiving a treatment feels very relaxing, gentle and safe.
You will feel you specific parts of your body vibrating very gently under the therapists hands.
For example, the bones around your knee.
You will also feel gentle vibrations throughout your whole body.
HOW DOES THE VIBRATION WORK?
The vibration used in Hibiki connects with bones and thereby reaches the entire human body, from the inside out.
The vibration conducts to nerves, blood vessels, lymph vessels, tendons, ligaments, muscle, skin and more.
The stimulation activates cells and their self-healing ability.
Activated cells warm up themselves and conduct vibrations more strongly.
WHAT IS HIBIKI?
Hibiki works through vibration to any bone in your body.
Even when applied to your small toe, the Hibiki vibration travels through your whole body to reach your head.
This vibration is small and invisible. Once you touch another bone in your body, you call feel the vibration.
WHY HIBIKI IS EFFECTIVE?
When you use Hibiki using two hands, it treats your body like a wave reflection.
When you put your finger in the calmed flat surface of water, the waves reflect, combines with the original waves, and the height (amplitude) becomes twice as the original.
YOUR BODY IS ONE
The human body can’t be separated into just an arm, or only a head, or unrelated part.
Your body is united together in a relational whole through a complex network of facia, nerves, hormones and other systems.
Pain can refer to other parts of the body.
Through vibration, Dozen Hibiki Therapy treats the entire body.
This works well when the exact source of the pain is unknown, as it treats both the root cause, and the referred pain.
HOW DOZEN HIBIKI THERAPY WORKS?
It treats the whole body.
The vibrations from many parts of the body spread around the entire body from many different directions.
Master Nagai often likens it to trying to retrieve a ball from a tree branch.
When the ball becomes stuck in the tree, using a long pole to push the ball is a countermeasure therapy.
Another way is to shake the tree trunk from many directions.
This vibration is the style of Dozen Hibiki.
