Though a relatively recent form of treatment, Seitai integrates the secret techniques of ancient therapies to activate the natural healing power of the human body. With over fifty years of experience, the author has adapted and developed the essence of this practice into a unique, innovative method-Imoto Seitai.

The human body has the power to restore itself naturally to its normal condition from illness and injury without external interference. The role of the Seitai practitioner is to examine and treat the body's skeletal frame and muscles in order to eliminate any factors that weaken or obstruct the body's natural healing power. Seitai techniques are based on a combination of traditional Japanese healing therapies.

Throughout his fifty years of experience with Seitai, the author has adapted his own discoveries and ideas into a unique form of treatment in accordance with the changes he has witnessed occurring in the human body during the course of his practice. The Seitai approach to staying healthy will be both innovative and compelling for the Western reader, who will in time come to regard it as an essential, commonsense practice for maintaining the body's health.

With many detailed photographs illustrating comprehensive physical exercises, The Seitai Method shows readers how to treat themselves for a variety of disorders, from common ailments such as stiff shoulders, toothache, and colds, to more serious diseases such as asthma and tonsillitis, as well as debilitating conditions like obesity. The author also deals extensively with general measures for maintaining overall physical and mental health. The Seitai Method will be an invaluable resource for anybody interested in a fresh holistic approach to maintaining a healthy body.
