Yumeiho® is a therapeutic method based on manual actions performed on the entire human body for maintaining or improving health; it includes about 100 maneuvers performed on the entire patient’s body.
It is also known as the “method of correcting hip bones, massage and presopunctura” or “Saionji Oriental Special Massage” but the original name is “Yumeiho® therapy”.
Yumeiho® therapy consists in the methodical application of a complex set of manual procedures and exercises in order to restore the functional balance of the body. Thus, a variety of disorders that may cause both acute and chronic suffering are eliminated or ameliorated.
Although Yumeiho® is a method designed to be mainly preventively applied, it is still called „therapy” because its main purpose is treating or reducing the causes of functional disorders which, in time, may cause chronic suffering.
Likewise, Yumeiho® therapy may be applied in preventing or slowing the progress of already present suffering.
The manual therapeutic procedures, applied for prophylactic or corrective purpose, consist of: techniques of osteoarticular manipulation and passive myo-articulation gym; puncto-therapy procedures (similar to those used in pressopuncture and reflexotherapy); special massage techniques and procedures; stretching elements (stretchings, elongations); correction and balancing methods of posture, walking and statics; optimization exercises of the locomotory apparatus biomechanics etc.
Physical exercises practiced within the Yumeiho® therapy consist in special gymnastic called YUMEIHO® TAISO, accompanied by breathing techniques, relaxation methods etc.
