Traditional Japanese Stress Management

The Traditional Japanese Stress Management program melds the exercises and theoretical principles of Aikido and Noguchi Sei Tai, with Ericksonian Hypnosis, NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and recent discoveries in neuroscience research. By engaging in our exercises you will be guided through a process that helps you to feel more alive and at peace in your everyday life. Little by little, you will notice that your stress melts away and is replaced by a feeling of calm confidence.

This program consists of two modules: 1) Breathe, Presence, and Tranquility and 2) Generating & Utilizing Ki. An outline of each modules is listed below. The modules use a variety of rich visual imagery, interactive video, verbal guidance, and specially-composed music, to help you experience clarity of mind and a release of excess muscular tension. As you learn how to slow down and experience the fullness of the present moment, you will come to realize that you do have all the resources necessary to live the life you truly desire. The slower you go, the sooner you will reach your destination!


The modules can be purchased independently in any order, but purchasing both will give you a richer, deeper experience. You can purchase one module now and the other at a later time if you like. You can stream all of the exercises directly from our site, and you can also download all of the videos, slideshows and audio to use on your computer or mobile devices. This gives you full access to all the materials for many years to come. You can view your purchase options here.

If you are curious to know more about what our program is like, please try our Mushin Breathing exercise. You will be treated to a variety of beautiful images and music as I guide you through the exercise. Just click here to have a look and a listen.

And if you feel like you might need specialized help I would always be happy to engage in some coaching sessions with you. Just contact me and we can have an informal conversation. After talking you will have a better sense of what I have to offer and how I might be able to help you.

I love this program, and over the course of time I feel like I have made a new friend. Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say I have made a better friendship with myself. Just like Charlie says, I found the course working ‘little by little’. As I have learned to slow down I feel more in control of my life, and more in control of my emotions. What a blessing! Thanks so much.
