SeifukujitsuSeifukujitsu: Effective Japanese Restoration Therapy

Though the term “Seifukujitsu” is largely unknown in this country, it is immediately recognized in Japan and Hawaii as an alternative therapy that often works where other, less-tested therapies fail.

Restoration Therapy has two goals:

  • To balance the energy in the body.
    (the “Ki” in Japanese or “Chi” in Chinese)
  • To break down soft tissue areas of the body that have been injured to allow them to properly heal.

For over 5,000 years…

Chinese medical practitioners have proven that health problems will occur when the body’s natural energy flow is interrupted. Restoration of the natural flow eliminates the problem.

Again, thousands of years of Asian experience has proven the value of deep tissue work, and the “deep work” done at the Kodenkan Clinic is like no other. Combined with herbal formulas, our success in treating difficult ailments is enviable.

Patient receives herbal hot pack treatment

Hundreds of our clients will attest to the soothing and beneficial Seifukujitsu therapy.

With our techniques, even injuries from five years ago or more that are still painful or bothersome can be restored – often, to its fully healed, pre-injured state. This is unheard of in traditional therapy, but occurs regularly with Seifukujitsu.

More than massage… More than standard therapy…

More than acupressure, herbal therapy, and dozens of other techniques…

Restoration Therapy is a 1500 year-old technique with incredible success in treating sprains, strains, bruises, chronic pain and many other hard-to-cure ailments… even migraines and fatigue!

The History of Restoration Therapy

Our founder, Henry Okazaki, was the foremost exponent of Restoration Therapy in America, creating his Nikko Restoration Sanatorium in Honolulu in 1929. In fact President Franklin Roosevelt, a polio victim, was treated by Prof. Okazaki…and Roosevelt said Okazaki was the only person who actually helped him with his ailments!

Okazaki also treated dozens of other politicians and celebrities like George Burns, Charlie Chaplin, Carol Lombard, Johnny Weismuller and many others. Whether for Jujitsu training or Restoration Therapy, these celebrities often made Prof. Okazaki their first stop in Hawaii.

The tradition of experience, success and learning was passed down from Okazaki to Sig Kufferath, the professor’s number one student. And again, this rich experience has been handed down to Clinic founder Tony Janovich, Kufferath’s number one student.

Put 5000 years of Chinese traditions, 1500 years of Seifukujitsu and over 90 years of local experience to work for you!

Our Patients’ Stories

Matthew Hall

“My shoulder was injured in a bicycle accident and again in a wrestling tournament. My doctors prescribed rest followed by physical therapy, but that failed to help. A shoulder specialist told me that my only option was arthroscopic surgery. I declined the surgery and my problems persisted for over three years.”

“Kodenkan was recommended to me, and after the first few appointments I noticed a significant improvement in my range of motion and pain. By the end of the treatment program I was virtually 100% recovered.” — Mattthew Hall

“By 1991 I had gone through 3 fusions and 2 discs were removed from my back. I had been suffering severe pain daily, deep spasms, headaches, no energy and depression because of the great pain I suffered.

“In 1997 I was referred to the Kodenkan Restoration Therapy by David Salinger, MD. I have since been treated at the Kodenkan by Prof. Tony Janovich. The spasms are gone, much of my pain is relieved, I have more energy. Most importantly, I now lead a more normal life because my depression and anger are gone. Restoration Therapy treatment has changed my life.” — Everist Romano
