  Dennis Bartram - The Journey Towards Tensegrity

After several years of training, he visited Dr. Hatsumi with me. Dr. Hatsumi observed him walking, asked him to lie down and began to palpate his damaged leg. After a few moments, he decided on a spot and said "This Place". He then pressed forcibly, quickly and deeply into the tissue of the leg. My friend's pelvis and spine contorted and twisted as he pushed with his fingers into his leg. Then my friend stood up

unaided and walked a few steps with a slight limp and more uprightly aligned.


He had straightened up so much that his stick was now too short to reach the ground from where he held it. He could also step forward from both feet almost equally. I had now seen evidence of what I could only describe as a miracle. Dr. Hatsumi then pressed my leg in a similar spot so I could feel the depth and effort of the pressure. He explained that this feeling and the body motion that generates it was the most important thing to study.


All of my teacher's lessons were delivered in this oxymoronic manner. He would demonstrate a technique, which stretched your imagination and then let you ponder on the questions that would lead you there. On another occasion, he pressed into my cheek with his thumb for a moment and relived all my symptoms of fatigue and jet lag immediately. He explained that these effects on the body were possible because of a principle known as Gairon, which translators explained it as "The Big Picture", private tutorials (1995) Dr. M. Hatsumi, the  terconnectedness of all things, the feeling of nature.


My research was to understand the relationship between the osteopathic lesion and the tissues that maintained the lesion. Manipulation was based on either high velocity thrusts to a bone or forceful leverage principles. These techniques could be painful for the recipient and could also rupture the adjoining tissues. In 1995 I had the good fortune to observe first hand a Japanese master realign a pelvic and spinal distortion in moments without force or leverage.


He actually applied pressure to the inner thigh with his thumb for about two to three seconds. On reexamination of the client all the physical factors of the problem had realigned. He said that this approach was possible because of a principle known in Japanese as Gairon.
