SBM Trial Lesson  - Client's Voice


From long ago I was conscious that my body was slightly distorted. Until recently I had tried various methods of exercise to get over my problem. But I could not get any good results despite my repeated efforts. The way I walked was walking with a slight limp. In particular, after giving birth to my daughter, the situation got worse. I was spending every day having difficulty walking. Just then, I came across SBM and had a trial lesson.

The next day after the lesson to my surprise, I found myself smoothly walking.
My instinct told me " That is it". Around the time, I was at the crossroads of my life, and I might eventually have some financial problems. For this reason, it took some time before I came to the decision to take up SBM lesson. Now I am really certain that I made right decision.

Around then, I chronically had a headache, stiff shoulders, backache, numbness of my big toe, the splitting of my little toenail and so on. As far as…

I have tried other kinds of sports therapy massage and physio in the past but the pain has always returned.

I have suffered from occasional, niggly lower back pain after pregnancy (SPD) and tightness in my neck following two whiplash injuries a few years ago. I have tried other kinds of sports therapy massage and physio in the past but the pain has always returned. I researched other ways to treat this and came upon the Japanese method of SBM which was focussed around spinal and pelvic alignment. I booked in for a trial session for SBM with Mika and opted to learn techniques from her that would allow me, as my discomfort was not a serious condition, to treat myself with the methods Mika taught me. In my trial session, Mika explored my concerns and what I knew about my own body alignment before beginning to explain and demonstrate her techniques. I was particularly impressed by the gentle way Mika walked me through the technique and she managed to explain the method very simply in a way that was easy for me to understand and repeat for myself. Mika explained that SBM is something I c…

After I had 3 consecutive regular periods, I discovered I was pregnant

After I had 3 consecutive regular periods, I discovered I was pregnant
Now two and a half years of continuing with the SBM,my body has gone through a major transformation with minor adjustments every now and then. Getting the menstrual cycle back to normal was the toughest one - it took good couple of years after giving birth to my first child– but continuing the SBM gradually got me back on track. It was one step at a time: first the bowel movements, then the menstrual cycle. When things weren’t quite going as intended from time to time, I would resort to fasting.     
 After I had 3 consecutive regular periods, I discovered I was pregnant with our second child at the end of the year. Again, I was extremely grateful, and could not help but think it was owing to the SBM exercise I was diligently pursuing.


  I am now due to give birth in a month’s time. Unlike what I went through in Japan, childbirth in the UK is a totally different experience. Here, if the mother is in good health, she d…

Self Body Make (SBM)  Japanese method !
The name speaks for itself- SBM literally means‘making your own body.’It is a set of simple, self-curing exercises for your back and neck by using a special SBM pillow.



The exercise will gradually correct the position of pelvis, leading to correction of balance disorders and muscle imbalances. The beauty of SBM is not only acquiring the art of self-dependence and learning the joy of this exercise, but also the transformation from within and outside of one’s body.



The beauty of SBM is not only acquiring the art of self-dependence and learning the joy of this exercise, but also the transformation from within and outside of one’s body. The theory of SBM is profound. The more you exercise, the more you will discover. No matter what your age is, you can evolve your body and mind through SBM.
