Seitai (整体?, translation: "properly ordered body"). Technically, it consists in easing the activity of the life force by re-adjusting the physiology of the body. Basic known techniques are katsugen undō (活元運動?), Seitai taisō (整体体操、せいたいたいそう)and yuki (愉気, ゆき), which has been founded by Haruchika Noguchi (野口晴哉, のぐちはるちか).[1][2] Major concepts in seitai includes taiheki (体癖, たいへき).[3] Seitai is also known as Noguchi Seitai to prevent ambiguity. Note: For some people Seitai was invented by Michio Takahashi in the 1920s. He is also called the founder of the Seitai School.[4]

Katsugen undō[edit]

Katsugen undō (regenerating movement exercise, 活元運動, かつげんうんどう) is a Seitai exercise developed by Haruchika Noguchi in which one purposely lets go of conscious control of the body and allows it to heal itself. Also a manifestation of regenerating movement exists which is spontaneously induced by the body and which is simply called katsugen.[2][7]
