Sunflower Healing is dedicated to transforming the way we view well-being. Thousands of years ago Anma and other ancient practices were the foundation of health. Well-being began with the family and Anma practitioners became integral participants in this. They believed that we are born with less than perfect health and maintaining optimal well-being is a consistent and diligent practice to be enjoyed and honored.
I am honored to be able to provide information about these ancient Japanese and Chinese practices that have made a difference in my life and the lives of my clients, friends, and family.
About Eric Eisenmann
In the spring of 1985 I discovered The Book of Massage and with no formal training, I began experimenting with acupoints and massage techniques on myself and friends. In 1992, I was promoted to Director of Education at Aveda in San Francisco and had the opportunity to train thousands of hair stylists on the Aveda scalp and shoulder massage.
In 1995, I made a career change and apprenticed with Shogo Mochizuki and after only two years of intensive studies began teaching Level I Anma. In 2007, David Palmer, The Father of Chair Massage, Sam Keller, and I launched Zubio, a revolutionary business model in the chair massage industry. The San Francisco Chronicle agreed calling us “The Starbucks of Massage” on the front page of the business section.
These days I spend most of my time with my two-year old son while maintaining a small and intimate massage practice. I teach massage around the country and coach small business owners and entrepreneurs. My latest venture is in creating one of the only schools in America focused solely on the Japanese healing arts. The School for Japanese Healing Arts has been a dream of mine for years and I’m excited about the opportunity to share and teach.
