Hello, I’m Mitsutoshi Taniguchi, director of Japan Body Care Academy. We’re now in the era for YOU to take care of your own and your own family member’s health, and YOUR FAMILY members to take care of the health of YOUR COMMUNITY members. I am here to provide the information to enable that.
Japan Body Care Academy is a school that generates therapists who practice a variety of therapy which include KEIRAKU(Shiatsu and Japanese dry massage) with a theoretical foundation on Oriental medicine. Besides that, they also master the skill of self-care, so they can contribute the public by organizing series of the seminar that provides authentic knowledge on health and beauty, gaining the trust of people, and in the same time, able to keep the profitable business on their own.
It is not easy to maintain the trust of people and keep the business profitable. Yet, I believe that in this era, generating and to keep supporting as many therapists — who able to materialize both people’s trust and profitable business with pleasure and with the visible result— will contribute to energizing Japan and also the world.

The vision of Japan Body Care Academy - Peace of Mind
We want all our alumni to start a new day of work with a smile on their faces. Life is short and time is precious; we would like you to work in joy every day.
How to get this result? By becoming a reliable therapist, knowing how to respond to the needs of his patients while making a good living. If you can combine these two principles based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and teach at the Japan Body Care Academy, you will be able to start the day with happiness: this is our vision, and we call it “The spirit at peace” and “Peace of Mind”.
At the age of 18, Master TANIGUCHI enters the acupuncture school. He then studied with various teachers at the same time as the school for five years until he graduated as a Japanese osteopath. To date, he treats approximately 20,000 patients in shiatsu and Japanese massage at his clinic.
Keiraku is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and developed as it was practiced in the office.
For 20 years Master TANIGUCHI trains students at the Japan Body Care Academy and improves KEIRAKU according to the feedback of his former students. If you
learn the basics of Keiraku correctly, you too can use this method successfully.
In traditional Chinese medicine, it is said that a person possesses the energy, the “Qi”. If the Qi circulates easily throughout the body, it is considered healthy.
However, if because of the daily stress and bad habits of life, the circulation of Qi remains long disturbed, a disease can be declared.
KEIRAKU is a technique capable of improving the flow of stagnant Qi and thus keeping the body healthy.
The excellence of Western medicine is recognized, and it evolves every day. However, in Japan, it is common to “prevent the disease”, that is to say, to cure the cause before it is declared; we want to spread this idea of prevention beyond the borders of Japan.
So far, Master TANIGUCHI teaches KEIRAKU only to Japanese therapists from the Japan Body Care Academy but now wants to teach therapists around the world to encourage disease prevention.

We also offer a business creation course for therapists; it is possible to acquire teaching materials on this subject.
A teaching curriculum on different topics is also proposed:

Our alumni have become very active therapists; some have become trainers. All are happy to help their many customers, both in terms of health and beauty.

He is also a technical advisor to firms such as Max Factor or major Japanese cosmetics companies. He is the author of two books (one of which
marketed in Taiwan) and regularly gives television interviews; a large number of magazines and newspapers also publish articles about him.
Internationally recognized technique
We opened a school in Rwanda, in Kigali, in September 2018 and invited foreign residents to discover the KEIRAKU (see photos and comments below).
The video below shows our students, Beth and Olivier, teaching KEIRAKU to three new students.
Currently, three students are practicing the KEIRAKU massage at the SERENA hotel, one of the three best hotels in Kigali.
We are creating a spa in Rwanda. After an internship in France, we will go back to inaugurate it.
We prefer to teach our techniques to blind therapists or single mothers in order to promote employment. We supported this activity using crowdfunding.
In addition, we present on the Internet the teaching material of the technique and the theory of KEIRAKU. People all over the world have begun to study the method using this material.
In October 2019, we ran an internship in Toulouse and gave a conference at Airbus head office on KEIRAKU head care that promotes sleep disorder.
