(PDF 716.1 kb)
Seiki jutsu is a unique self-healing and revitalization practice based on spontaneous expression. The transformative art of handling seiki, the presumed vital life force, consists of transmitting enhanced seiki, a daily practice for its development, and healing modalities that address body movement and therapeutic conversation. Seiki jutsu differs from other movement-based practices in that it emphasizes spontaneity over choreographed form, and has little concern with explanation. This ­article introduces a brief history of seiki jutsu, and its relevance and application as a member of the somatic and conversational healing arts.
