Sotai is a form of movement therapy created by the late Dr. Keizo Hashimoto M.D. of Sendai, Japan. He developed it through his study of various forms of traditional Japanese medicine in concert with his knowledge of modern medicine and science. Dr. Hashimoto's vision was to create an effective form of exercise therapy that anyone could learn to heal their own bodies. Sotai involves treatment with a trained therapist, and solo-exercises, ideally these are combined, and exercises are practiced daily in between treatment sessions.
