    3 Common Roadblocks to Restoring Health

    No matter how much you might want to, you really can't: 

    1. out-run nutrient imbalances or poor eating practices with more intense exercise or longer meditations.

    We begin the healing process with building your nutritional foundations.

    2. out-eat chronic stressors, toxic thought patterns, or harmful lifestyle habits with another "perfect diet".

    We address the whole person, not just the parts, including beliefs and lifestyle factors.

    3. activate your full body-mind-spirit potential without listening to your body's needs and responding aptly.  


    We emphasize developing a basic understanding of body functions, a powerful bridge to deeper questions.

    The Hara Center: Connecting with the Subtleties of Your Gut

    Have you ever felt uncentered, internally disconnected, or cut off from your body and your life?

    In this 26-page eBook, Masami highlights important points and simple practices to help you care for your Hara, the center of your being, which corresponds directly with your gut.

    Masami includes personal experiences with Hara awareness from her time growing up in Japan, and effective practices she has employed as a health practitioner for over 20 years.


    • How the gut acts as a "second brain" in the body
    • How the Hara connects us to everything in our lives
    • Powerful tools and breathing practices to support your Hara Center
    • Massages and yoga poses that activate Hara health and flow

    Are You Feeling Toxic?

    Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA)

    Multiple factors affect your health, but mineral deficiencies and heavy metal toxicity lead to disorders of the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, muscular, skeletal, neurological, immune and endocrine systems. 

    Hair mineral levels provide a comprehensive picture of the inner workings of your cellular biochemistry and how that affects the whole self:  body, mind, heart, and spirit.   

    Who is HTMA for?

    • EVERYONE!  Whether you are struggling with health-related issues today or are looking to prevent future illnesses, just about everyone has mineral imbalances and exposures to toxic heavy metals. 
    • Children and adults on anti-depressants, mood stabilizers, stimulants, and medications in general.  Bodies impacted by medications are almost guaranteed to experience nutrient mineral imbalances as result.
    • Anyone suffering from addictions, ADD/ADHD or neurological disorders.
    • Highly sensitive people with delicate digestive systems and reactive immune systems, who continue to struggle despite working on eating well.   
    • Individuals looking for a clear bio-individual plan (diet, supplements, lifestyle, etc.) that would address his/her specific, demonstrated physiological needs, NOT a "shotgun" approach
    • Individuals struggling with mood swings, energy fluctuations, sleep disorders, emotional and mental ups and downs, despite working on mindfulness practices.

    How can we help you?

    Metal Detector Filled-50.png

    "According to my doctor and my blood work there is nothing wrong with me, but I still feel horrible!   Could my health concerns be the result of toxic heavy metals?"

    "How is my spirituality connected to nutrition and my overall health?  I'm more interested in awareness practices like meditation and yoga.  Why start with the food on my plate?"


    "How long do I have to implement 'healthy lifestyle' changes before I see results and start to feel better?"

    "My back always hurts.  Massage, PT, acupuncture, and chiropractic adjustments help, BUT they just don't seem to stick.  Could this be related to nutrition?"

    What Our Clients Are Saying

    I didn’t start off on this journey with a health or fitness goal in mind. I had reached a point where all I wanted was to be able to live my life without falling apart. Since meeting Chris and Masami I’ve seen severe symptoms of chronic disease reverse, and have become not only much healthier, but a greater version of myself as a whole. I’ve transformed with the help of these two, and I continue to make strides and discoveries every single day.
    — Gavin C., Kapaa, Hawaii
    All the stars aligned...and I happened to meet Chris and Masami in serendipitous circumstances. They mentioned in passing that they seem to be the last resort for many of their clients because they’ve exhausted all their options. Little did I know that I would follow suit. After getting a heart-breaking diagnosis from my doctors (Type II Diabetes), I was determined to turn my health around, and do it without taking conventional Western medicine/medication. Enter Chris and Masami. I was diligent and disciplined about the direction they gave me and follow all their advice strictly. My diagnoses were reversed after 7 months. I’m continuing to work with them to stay on track and work on other health anomalies. In the time I’ve been working with them, my family, friends, and peers have also remarked how young I look - which was a great added bonus that I was not anticipating. I have dropped 30 pounds and look much healthier as a result. I cannot be more thankful to Chris and Masami. I only wish more people would realize how much Chris and Masami can help.
    — Mike S., Chicago, IL
    When I first consulted Chris and Masami in late 2014, I was suffering a host of physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual dis-ease. Painfully aware only of the physical, I just wanted to feel better. Through their hands-on sessions and applying their wisdom at home I felt much better within a couple of weeks. But it turns out the physical “feeling better” is foundational for a much broader wellness. This “coming into one’s wholeness” is the real work Chris and Masami perform and facilitate through their Zenshin Method, a dynamic and evolving process.
    — Dee C., Arvada, CO
    By focusing on the nutritional quality and macronutrient balance of shared meals at our fire station, the entire crew has seen improvements in our sleep, focus, energy levels, camaraderie, and as a bonus, even weight loss. It’s important that we firefighters are fit and healthy so we can serve the public at our highest level.
    — Steve S., Wheat Ridge, CO
    I just wanted to thank you both once again for all of the help you have given me and my family. I could not have done our big trip without my health. We canoed 60 miles in 6 days and 5 nights!
    — Will H., Boulder, CO
