Danzan Ryu Restorative Therapy

Director Cynthia Frueh founded Makoto Kai Healing Arts (MKHA) in 1996. It is a massage school that provides the education to practice therapeutic massage. MKHA promotes the teachings of Danzan Ryu, a system of jujitsu and healing arts developed by the founder of Danzan Ryu, Master Henry Okazaki.

Sensei Cynthia Frueh is no longer offering these courses. The same courses with most of the same staff are going to be offered in Roseville, California starting in September, 2018. 


The Administrator is Sensei Nerissa Freeman and here are the contacts for information about the current course:



MKHA is approved by the Danzan Ryu Seifukujitsu Institute (DZRSI), a national massage program that is a division of the American Judo & Jujitsu Federation. The courses are open to all qualified persons, whether or not they are in jujitsu, but the primary beneficiaries are students of Danzan Ryu Jujitsu pursuing a course of study that enhances their jujitsu studies.

Professor Okazaki taught jujitsu and massage to his students, promoting the idea that the fighting spirit should be balanced by the healing spirit. His technique is derived from his training in Japanese restorative techniques as well as traditional Hawaiian bodywork.
