Master Henry Seishiro Okazaki (1890 – 1951), an internationally known Jujitsu martial artist and therapist, updated this system with his own approach, calling it Seifhukujitsu or Long-Life Restoration Therapy. The modality is also known as Okazaki Long-Life Massage.

His system is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) concepts, Japanese TCM blends, and influenced by the Hawaiian systems of Lua (combat) and Lomi Lomi Massage. The massage treatment uses fingers, palms, forearms and elbows to apply acupressure, rocking techniques, stretches and resuscitation techniques (Kappo or Kappou) to restore and balance Ki (Qi) Life Energy.

Additional benefits are said to be an increased range of motion in the joints, improved blood and lymphatic circulation, and a longer life (longevity).
