Tony Gutierrez - Traditional Chinese Medicine
Tony has been studying jujitsu at the Urban Kodenkai under his brother-instructor Filiberto Gutierrez since 1997 while serving in the Mexican Navy. He received the title of Shodan 1st degree Black Belt in 2003 and was introduced to the Healing Art (Asian Restoration Therapy) by Professor Tom Ryan, Shichidan full instructor of the course and state representative for the American Organization for Bodywork Therapies of Asia (AOBTA). He graduated in 2008 from a 4 year intensive program. Hands-on and professional standards were introduced, applied and mastered.
Techniques shall be defined as a comprehensive system of therapeutic treatments whose origins are based upon and guided by the fundamental principles of Traditional Asian Medicine, a 3,000 year old medical system. These treatments include predefined sets of movements, pressure protocols and sequences that address overall body harmony, balance and specific physical condition. Treatment is designed to stimulate and balance the flows of energy, blood, body fluids and essences as defined by TCM. This allows the human body to adjust its internal and external systems to restore health.
