Eastern Medicine in Anime and Daily Life

Eastern medicine is based on the concepts of yin and yang, along with the five elements. These things can be found in all layers of our life: in our food, in our emotions, in our bodily functions and of course also in our anime! A few examples are Naruto, Fist of the North Star and more.

About Dianto

I’ve been doing shiatsu for five years now, studying at the Dutch school for classical shiatsu. Every day I work with shiatsu in my food, body exercises and massaging people. I have dedicated my life to exploring, learning and sharing what I’ve discovered. Now, I will share my passion with AnimeCon, where there is already so much interest in Japanese culture.

For anyone interested in learning more about shiatsu, the Dutch school for classical shiatsu, founded by Alan Nash, gives full HBO education and basic courses right here in the Hague. You can take a look at their website:

Also check out the workshop event "Zen-Shiatsu", which will be hosted on Sunday.
