Takami Kamata, Rolfing®Frankfurt

About Takami
 

Born and grew up in the central Tokyo Japan as a great granddaughter of a Buddhist monk, chanting Lotus Sutra without knowing the meaning over years (still half way), spent my youth as a book worm, graduated from the oldest women’s university aimed to mass-produce good wives (the obedient) but actually known to produce female CEOs (rebel), started my carrier as a cabin attendant (popular), followed by a research assistant at a university institute, study in the US, patent officer, eventually dropped out of the attempts to protect myself by belonging to something robust.  When I gave a birth to my daughter in 2000 and was blown away by her massive presence, I felt I could complete validating myself.

 

I returned to my own nature as a seeker of life—a journey to return to fundamental consciousness as awareness that overviews our individual dramas.

 

I was guided to live in Germany since 2002 and after several back and forth between Germany and Japan, I got my permanent residency in Germany in 2019.  Meanwhile I became a yoga teacher in 2007, Rolfer and Rolf Movement Practitioner in 2011, Jikiden Reiki teacher in 2012, Advanced Rolfer in 2017, Somatic Experiencing practitioner and homeopath in 2019.

 

Now I am grateful for all the encounters and events including tough and painful to nourish my spiritual growth, and just thankful to all the bonds supporting me: nature, my loved ones, great teachers and friends, and resources such as A Course in Miracles or Zen meditation community these days. 

  

Throughout my life, alternative medicines have been always my interests.  As a result, my daughter--my dear guinea pig--is as fit and sound as a fiddle or a bull and has never needed to see a conventional doctor for ill-health since she was born even after she has established her own life style independent from me.

The founder Dr. Ida Rolf (1896-1979), one of the first female Ph.D as a biochemist in our history, stood firm in her position as a scientist and called Rolfing* as pure science. (*Originally she named Rolfing as Structural Integration and did not like this naming but it became too popular.)  It was the era when homeopathic remedies or herbs or so called alternative medicines nowadays were replaced with petroleum-derived medicines and so universities to study homeopathy disappeared accordingly.  In such circumstances Dr. Rolf was devoted herself to reading homeopathic Materia Medica for her clients and for her own. When I knew Dr. Rolf's "hobby" was similar to mine, I was delighted by such a coincidence.

 

Once Dr. Rolf said Rolfing was similar to shamanism. This is my position as a Rolfer; I accompany you with piety to help you return to your own nature.  You were born as a perfect living entity and are still perfect after all these painful memories.  

Are you trying to change yourself or your environment?

Are you trying to achieve your goal or realize your dream?

Are your trying to control your habit, emotions or desire?

Are you trying to overcome your trauma, weakness or pain?

 

Are you insecure?

Are you afraid of change?

Are you afraid of uncertainty?

Are you afraid of losing what you are attached to?

Are you depressed for things falling apart?

Are you depressed for nonsense and absurdity in life?

Are you depressed for a sense of disconnection and loneliness?

Are you lack of energy?

You don’t have to try to be better.

​You don't have to achieve your goal.

​You don't have to overcome your problem.

You don’t have to change the world or yourself.

You will fail anyway.

Are you blaming things falling apart?

​Are you blaming someone on betraying you?

Are you blaming someone on judging and comparing you with others?

You are the one who hurts you by your illusions.

You are the one who blames yourself on doing the above.

You are the one who lowers your self esteem.

Once you are free from your drama, this nightmare, this illusion where you try to prove you are guilty, you will remember you are love and light from the very beginning.

 

You are already perfect and salvaged.

Everything is in hear and now.

You can’t keep things transient and changing.  

No living entity stays still.

Rolfing is a journey of total surrender.

​From resistance to surrender,

from rejection to acceptance,

from doing to being,

from unconsciousness to awareness,

from a part to the whole.

Once you allow yourself to surrender and stop rejecting helping hands always with you, awareness whispers you are already centered and grounded with gravity.  You are free and changing with the flow of nature.

Rolfing is not my treatment. This is a process of awakening consciousness by cultivating your bodily sentience to integrate yourself as a sprit, i.e., light. Improvement happens when you are aware and release what you are clinging to, not expelling/replacing what annoys you.  I will assist you so that you will meet your blueprint as a perfect form of yours often forgotten and put aside. 

 

During the ten series, some of you might experience emotional catastrophe or trauma release.  These are the outburst of repressed energy embedded in connective tissues.  Since our body is a navigator from divine consciousness to our dramas, bodily sentience is the conductor to return to our source.

When the repressed and frozen energy is going to find a way out, we can just let it go in a safe and sound container I provide. In such cases Somatic Experiencing, SSP, or energy work such as SourcePoint Therapy, Jikiden Reiki or SARI, or a homeopathic consultation can alter the session.  

 

My intention is always how to support you—with varieties of soft, deep, intensive, subtle or even hands-off touch—according to your needs. Respecting your edge, I choose what seems to be most appropriate to you; some of you may need intensive anatomical adjustments and others may need removal of visceral tension, nervous settlement. trauma release or energetic flow, etc.  

 

I’m looking forward to working with you for your return to nature.
